    Entering the email address of a NordVPN user
  4. 4.
    Tap Send invitation.
You can cancel the invitation you’ve sent while it is still pending by going to Manage devices > Invitations > Sent and tapping Cancel.
The other user will receive your invitation in their NordVPN app. If the user has NordVPN installed on multiple devices, they need to accept the invitation on each device individually.
Once the device owner accepts the invitation, their device will appear among your external devices.
The invitation remains active even after the other user accepts it so that they have time to accept the same invitation on each of their devices.
If not canceled sooner, invitations expire within 72 hours from the time of sending.
