I use the Kindle for PC app on Windows 10 to read ebooks. I'm reasonably happy with it (although it keeps losing the collections I create!)

Let me state that again: I'm talking about the Kindle PC app, running under Windows 10, not a Kindle device.

I recently started using NordVPN on my Windows 10 PC. The Kindle app doesn't like this, and won't sync when I have the VPN connected:

The Network Settings:

I've tried all three options, including connecting to a specific NordVPN server and putting in that information.

I've found next to no information about using the Kindle PC app and a VPN: all the information is about Kindle devices and VPNs.

Can anyone provide guidance about configuring this?

Enabled TCP protocol in NordVPN Advanced Settings if the issue will persist. However, it did not work. I set everything back and am awaiting their response.

Select IPv4 and Properties again and then please add these our DNS addresses: and

Latest - IT WORKED!
