Meaning NordVPN is widely used in HWZ?

Maybe spammers used it as well and got banned. But its non issue since we got plenty of servers to rotate.

Yup yup... wrote in and they deactivated it. Will be able to see on your dashboard that there is no recurring payment
Can also request for deactivation thru the online chat.

To access geo blocked contents seems to be the No 1 reason in this thread. However there are many other use cases related to privacy and security.

Not really. I guess you did not read the link.

Simple example: it could be simplely for public wifi security.

More complicated example: Bypass Internet Censorship, say the Great Firewall in China

Hi I got it between 1-2 hours after buying, visited the site via shopback app on my phone
Mine has not showed up till now. Had to raise a claim with Shopback. There's no Order ID number from Nordvpn so had to generate invoice to get an invoice number. So mafan.
Hope shopback recognise the rebate soon or else have to cancel Nordvpn subs within 30 days under money-back gurranttee

Just try out a few VPNs. Most have a 15day period where you can get a full refund anyway (:
u will lose exchange rates.

you can call your card issuing bank to waive the card admin fees or exchange rates differences for merchant refunded transactions.

Hi guys. I signed up for NordVPN through Shopback with 80% cashback. Did not read this thread properly and saw that they had a data breach before and something about automatic recurring subscription being notoriously hard to cancel.

Unfortunately, I made the mistake of paying using a CC. I have already emailed them to request for cancellation of automatic recurring subscription but I am also still within the 30-day cashback guarantee period. Should I just request for cashback, cancel my NordVPN account (is this even possible) then subscribe again?

Do you know why the SG server is under HWZ blacklist?
