What is VPN?
VPN means Virtual Private Network, a secure tunnel between two or more devices.
ExpressVPN creates a secure tunnel between your computer and every website or application online allowing you to anonymously appear to be anywhere you choose.

Top VPN uses
Whether the internet is censored in your country or you want to access sites and services which are restricted by your ISP, 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.
The world's fastest VPN
With unlimited bandwidth, you can enjoy your favorite videos and video chat with your friends and family without waiting for videos to buffer.
Protect your identity
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 and 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 targeted advertising based on location.
VPN apps for every device
ExpressVPN works seamlessly across all your devices - be it your desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, router, or tablet. Simply install our user-friendly VPN apps on any of your devices. You can be connected on up to three devices at the same time.
No tech skills required
Sign up, install, and press connect. It’s that simple. We developed our software to be straightforward for the least technologically savvy of us.
