Once the invitee accepts the invitation, their device joins your external devices list.
If the invited user has NordVPN installed on multiple devices, they need to accept the invitation on each device individually.
Ensure that the invitation is sent to a user you know and trust.
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.
