ExpressVPN

Virtual private network software with built-in kill switch

About ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN is a virtual private network software that helps small businesses and individuals access censored or blocked websites, videos, and applications via an AES-256 encrypted server. The VPN split tunneling functionality enables users to route limited and specific device traffic through VPN.

ExpressVPN provides a built-in kill switch, which lets teams automatically block internet traffic when VPN is disconnected. The leak protection functionality hides traffic data, DNS queries, browsing activity, and other connection logs, allowing users to maintain anonymity. It also lets IT service associates conduct speed tests to identify and choose the fastest server locations. The IP address masking module lets individuals change IP address across multiple devices, including PC, mobile, routers, game consoles, and smart TVs.

ExpressVPN comes with browser extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, which enable employees to browse through websites anonymously. Businesses can configure the platform in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Korean, and more. It also lets individuals create and store shortcuts for frequently visited applications and websites.

EpressVPN: never go to a trip without it

My experience has to be absolutely empowering. Nowadays I constantly paid for the whole year's service. It is not a bad idea, you know why? Because ExpressVPN gives you the best discount for a full year service. In my own opinion, it is a big bargain for all of us, yearly users who look for great service. In my opinion, ExpressVPN is the best desition made in the past three years. Thank you, guys.

Pros

My Professional life can be described as a) Before ExpressVPN and b) After ExpressVPN...I have never been so disconnected from the World during my Asian Trips. Thank God I finally made the desition to engage my gadgets with ExpressVPN. Since that moment of enlightenment, I am a different and empowered professional. Security and Access are key when you are on the road and you need to access all your data from overseas...

Cons

At first, I have no idea how a VPN works. It seems a lot of confusion and super geeks work. But I studied ExpressVPN website and Social Media and finally, I got engaged. What I don't really like is the top have security breaches in my types of equipment. Nobody wants to pass through such a nightmare. That is the least I want to experience again.

My overall experience is that despite it being so reasonably priced, it has helped my a lot with my work, especially when it comes to websites I want to go, but due to my country's restrictions, it has allowed my to bypass that in order for me to continue working and accessing more info if I need it.

Pros

I've been using this software on my laptop and smart phone, and I must say this software has really changed my life. from its easy to use functionality to its quick and easy deployment. For year's now, I've been looking for an inexpensive VPN for my laptop, and now I have. unlike most VPN's, Express VPN doesn't bombard you with a lot of questions before you use it, which I must say is fantastic.

Cons

One thing about it is that I wish it was a little more secure, there are times where pop up AD's appear even though I turned on the AD Block function.

Express VPN'S price was very reasonable. Some Softwares may be a lot more expensive, but fail when it comes to the services.

Used to Be a Great VPN

Reviewed on 2022/05/04

Pros

ExpressVpn was the only VPN I used for years. I love this VPN because it worked on every website and added an extra layer of security that I loved. The customer service specialist was always willing to help if there was an issue with the VPN they were always willing to help and provide a resolution to get this issue resolved.

Cons

After Express VPN was bought out by Kape Technologies, the VPN stopped working on certain and I did not get the sense of an extra layer of security was added when I went to certain websites.

I am glad I started using this VPN. I have noticed that I get less pop up ads and less email spam. I just wanted to use the internet without being constantly reminded that I was being watched and ExpressVPN has let me accomplish that.

Pros

Convenient install and set up. ExpressVPN's UI is simple to use. Multiple available VPN locations to choose from ensures local traffic will not effect speed.

Cons

Not a con just an observation. Connecting to available ExpressVPN locations is quick requiring only a few seconds, but sometimes disconnecting can take up to a minute. I would think if anything it would be the reverse. Not a big deal.

ExpressVPN - simple and fast to use

It is really good. I really appreciated the fact that it does simply what the product promises to do. You need a VPN from browsing websites from a different country than yours, it does this! And, it is easy to use.

Pros

The simplicity of the product. You need simply to install the customer, insert the user and password and start to use it. You do not need to become crazy to start leveraging the product. Moreover, once you are logged, with 2 clicks (not more!) you can browse any websites from the selected country. Last but not least, it works really!

Cons

I see just a pain point: there aren't nodes in China. If you need to test a website from China, you can't. This is an important limitation.

Reasons for Switching to ExpressVPN

I had the opportunity to have a free trial for 30 days. It worked well so I decided to go ahead with this product since it does what I expect to have. I did not need to check and analyze other products since ExpressVPN does the job.
