Can NordVPN be used with multiple devices?
A total of six devices can be connected with one NordVPN account at the same time, enabling NordVPN account sharing within families. However, there is one condition. If you connect the devices to the same server, you have to choose different VPN protocols (TCP and UDP are different protocols, so you can connect one device to TCP and another to UDP on the same server). That means that a total of five devices can be connected to one server at the same time: through HTTP proxy, SOCKS5, NordLynx, OpenVPN TCP, and OpenVPN UDP. If you have one more device, you can connect it to another server using any protocol.
If you have even more devices, you can set up your router with our VPN. The router uses only one device slot, but all the devices connected to the network will be under VPN protection.
In order to use NordVPN on your other devices, download our application and log in to your NordVPN account.
Tip: Don't forget to use a strong password on your router, as this will help you avoid uninvited guests on your network.
As generating and remembering strong and secure passwords is not an easy task, we recommend downloading our free password manager, NordPass. It generates secure passwords and stores them safely, saving your time on resetting passwords should you forget them in the future.
