How to determine if whether something is polyprotic? Is NH4 polyprotic?

An acid or base is polyprotic if it can give off or accept multiple protons, respectively. NH4+ is not polyprotic because once it donates one proton, the molecule becomes stable to the point that it will not donate another proton.

It is polyprotic if it can recieve or give more than one H+
