If you’re reading this, I assume you’re already aware that NordVPN is a VPN service that you shouldn’t register with. The company was initially founded in Germany back in 2006 and quickly expanded to other parts of Europe and then the rest of the world. Last year, they decided it was high time to cut off all unregistered devices from accessing their services, so they started blocking IP addresses associated with such registrants. The service started to restrict access to anyone who isn’t properly registered, and they have continued to tighten their stance on unregistered devices ever since. If you’re wondering how to unregister a NordVPN device, here’s a quick guide.
How to Unregister a NordVPN Device Using the Website
One of the easiest ways to unregister a NordVPN device is to visit the company’s website, log in, and follow the instructions. If you’re using a desktop or laptop computer, just open up a new browser tab and visit the site. From there, you’ll be presented with a couple of options. The first one is to simply unregister your device. To do so, all you need to do is click on the Register button and follow the onscreen instructions. Doing so will disconnect your device from the service and clear all its data. The alternative option is to activate your account. Once you’ve made the decision to do so, all you need to do is click on the Activate button and you’re good to go. You’ll now be presented with another option – deactivate your account. Those who prefer to keep their accounts active can also do so by following the instructions on the site. Either way, all your personal data will be deleted from the system and you’ll no longer be able to access the services of NordVPN. From there, you can go through the steps described below to find out how to unregister a NordVPN device from your mobile device.
How to Unregister a NordVPN Device Using the App
You can also use the official NordVPN app to unregister a NordVPN device. As mentioned above, this solution is quite straightforward – you’ll either register or de-register your device using the app. The downside is that if you’ve decided to de-register your device, you’ll have to do so manually. To unregister, open the app, tap the Settings button, and then select General. Next, scroll down and tap the Disconnect option. You’ll now be presented with a list of countries where you’re connected to. Select the country you’re in and then tap the Disconnect button. Doing so will disconnect you from the service and clear all your data. You can then de-register the device in the same manner as you registered it in the first place.
Those who prefer to use a NordVPN app to de-register a device must, of course, have a working phone number connected to the account in order to do so. Without one, you’ll simply be unable to log in and disconnect from the service. The alternative is to de-register the device using the website as described above.
How to Unregister a NordVPN Device Manually
If you’re still using a NordVPN device and you want to disconnect from the service, you have two options. The first one is to simply de-register the device using one of the methods described above. The other is to locate and click on the Unsubscribe button located at the bottom of the main page of the website. Doing so will disconnect you from the service and clear all your data. At that point, you can re-register your device with a different email address or go through the steps described below to find out how to unregister a NordVPN device from your mobile device.
How to Unregister a NordVPN Device From Your Mobile Device
The simplest way to unregister a NordVPN device from your mobile device is to go into the Settings app, scroll down to the Connections section, and then tap the VPN toggle button. From there, you’ll be able to disconnect from the service remotely and clear all your data. To disconnect locally, you’ll need to locate the VPN app and open it up. Once you’ve done so, you’ll see an option to disconnect at the bottom of the screen. Tap the option to disconnect from the service and clear all your data.
