Step 4: After confirming that you really wish to cancel your subscription, contact customer support via live chat or email and ask for a refund.

Step 5: Once the support representative approves your refund request, you can sit back relax and wait for your refund to come through. Just bear in mind that while the cancellation process is fairly quick, refunds can take up to 10-days.

Yes, with NordVPN’s extensive 30-day money back guarantee, you have the right to cancel your account at any time. You can simply cancel recurring subscriptions from the NordVPN’s website, iTunes/App Store or Google Play Store as shown above and get a full refund for the unused part of the ongoing service period.
