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.

Best VPN ever!

We have to use a VPN on a daily basis. Express VPN is the most trustworthy, secure and easy to use software on the market. Works perfectly and always protect your privacy when you get offline.

Pros

Express VPN is the best VPN I have used, and I have used it a lot because I live in Cuba. With only one account you can connect up to three devices simultaneously and that's great. It worths every single penny you have to pay for it.

Cons

A lot of updates are needed from time to time. Too frequently I guess. Apart from that, it's great software.

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.

Very good. Connections to channels abroad, especially BBC Iplayer which is notoriously hard to connect to and Prime were good even from China & Mexico. I also felt safe paying my staff whilst away.

Pros

I can access all the UK & Dutch channels as it keeps my banking details safe when travelling abroad. I per whenever I need it when travelling so doesn't cost me a lot.

Cons

No dislikes. It did disconnect occasionally but easily reconnected. I found it slowed down my phone quite a bit and didn't allow access to certain sites ( it worked fine when disconnected) which is a bonus abroad but a bit of a pain when at home.

Behaves like malware, unfortunate customer support

After more than a year of using them, I strongly encourage anyone considering them to stay away from this company. It is my opinion at this point that Express VPN uses deceptive practices in their marking and that most of the positive online reviews are paid for. I say this because this VPN has the highest ratings online yet it crashed every day, multiple times a day, constantly ran in the background even after I quit it and I had to actually force quit just to get it to turn off and unblock my internet. It took up an enormous amount of bandwidth, and when I wrote in recently to cancel my plan, I was told no problem and that I would receive an email and a refund and then I never did. This has now happened 2-3 times and I am at the point where I have to actually call my bank to reverse the charges and block them as a vendor. Their front-end customer support is great, unless you want a refund or technical support, and then they are hostile, defensive, and manipulative.

Having never used a VPN before this one, I thought that a lot of this was normal for a VPN, but it just got to the point where it was so disruptive that I couldn't get anything done while it was running.

I know how much time and energy it takes to shop and compare tech. Once you do, you want it to work so you can get on with your life, so I hope this interview can save you some time!

Pros

I signed up for ExpressVPN after reading and watching reviews all over the internet about how fantastic they are. They have great marketing, reviews, and an easy-to-use, intuitive UOI.

Cons

- Constant crashes
- Blocks internet
- Force quit necessary to stop the VPN
- Expensive
- High bandwidth usage
- Truly awful support, deceptive practices
- Overall experience with this software is that it behaves like malware. It became prohibitively disruptive to daily activities on and offline

It's funny that the slogan is it just works because it is spot on. It just worked, performed better than i expected, and it is pretty safe.

Pros

Easy to use and to teach, it's light and it works flawlessly.
It's simple but do everything you want and need from a VPN, and does it simple and without consuming a huge amount of resources.

Cons

I understand the cashback free trial idea, but it's really hard to convince a mass implementation with it, if instead could be provided a free trial of 30 days or a robust free version, it would be much easier to convince the large and especially the old staff members.
