What is VPN

What does VPN mean?

VPN means Virtual Private Network, a secure tunnel between two devices.

Protect and free yourself online with just 1 click. ExpressVPN creates a secure tunnel between your computer and every website or application online allowing you to anonymously appear to be anywhere you choose.

Hides your IP address and location

Use ExpressVPN to hide your IP and location. Choose among any of our VPN servers in the US, UK, Australia or any of 78 countries worldwide. The outside world will see only our IP address and location - never yours.

Encrypts your communications

Our VPN uses high strength 256-bit encryption to protect your data from prying eyes. Browse freely from Wi-Fi hotspots with the comfort that you can’t be tracked or monitored.

Simple, fast and unlimited

ExpressVPN runs seamlessly in the background — all you have to do is click to connect. We’ve optimized our network to provide the highest speeds possible with unlimited bandwidth.

Access any site

Whether the Internet is censored in your country or you want to access sites and services which are location restricted, ExpressVPN passes through filters and masks your location to provide unblocked and unlimited access.

View blocked websites from anywhere

Easily unblock sites and services like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, YouTube and Gmail. With ExpressVPN you can keep on accessing the sites you love.

Avoid censorship and surveillance

When connected to ExpressVPN, your ISP only sees encrypted traffic passing to our VPN servers, but they cannot decipher the data or know the websites you have visited.

Browse without location restrictions

No more annoying messages about content not being available from your area. Enjoy Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Spotify and many more services whenever and wherever you are.

Protect your identity

Protect@2x

Our high strength VPN encryption protects not only your web browser but also your emails, Skype conversations, online banking and everything you do or see online - whether you are at home, the office, a cafe, or traveling the world. Give yourself some added anonymity with ExpressVPN.

Stay safe from hackers & thieves

Once connected to ExpressVPN, all your data is encrypted and indecipherable, so you won’t have to worry about passwords and other sensitive information being intercepted.

We don’t monitor or log your activities

Online privacy is not always well understood, and laws are ever-changing. However, we are firm believers in privacy as a fundamental right. We never share your details with anyone.

Prevent third parties from tracking you

By hiding your IP address and location, ExpressVPN makes it harder for third party sites and services to charge different prices or display targetted advertising based on location.
