ExpressVPN – started operating since 2009, has proclaimed themselves as the fastest VPN provider on Earth. Since the beginning, they have been trying to improve in many ways.
They have owned more than 3000 servers all over the world within 90 countries.
They have dedicated their time to provide users Internet freedom and privacy. ExpressVPN is also a proud financial supporter of non-profit organizations fighting to protect the same rights.
ExpressVPN is compatible with all major devices and operating systems like Windows, Mac, IOS, Android, and Linux.
With the use of ExpressVPN, you will be able to watch videos that are only available in certain parts of the world. Whether it is Netflix or any other video streaming services, you will get a chance to watch videos only watchable in a certain country.
Your data going in and out of the virtual private network will be secured by four strong encryption and SSL. There will be a tunnel between you and the server where no one is allowed to view or share it. Your IP address will be hidden while you are under this VPN and will be replaced by a different and totally random address. This way, you will be unidentified by other hosts in the same network. You will be 100% anonymous and private.
There will be websites that are blocked and only accessible in certain locations. With the help of ExpressVPN, you can choose a server located where the website is available and you can start browsing it. There is a lot of servers to choose from, the chance of getting a server on a location if huge!
Website and User Interface
ExpressVPN’s website is very detailed and modern looking. From their home page, you will be able to find out what ExpressVPN is willing to do for you. There is a Chat section where you can get instant answers from your questions.
Their website has pages where you can learn a lot of stuff like how VPN works, top VPN uses, and something about Internet security. It is like a book with all kinds of information why you need VPN software.
My first impression of the client’s interface is “this looks like an antivirus”. The homepage has the server’s list where you can click, and connect. That is how easy it is to get into a VPN with ExpressVPN. If you want to change some settings like protocols, you can enter the settings page where you can find on top of the interface.
Pricing and Plans
There are 3 plans that you can choose from – monthly, annually, and semi-annual. By choosing annually, you will be able to save 35% of the total yearly payments but you will have to pay annually.
If you want to pay per month, you will have to choose monthly but it will cost you $12.95 instead of the lesser $8.32.
Whatever plan that you end up choosing, you will get a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not sullying satisfied. This is something that the competition doesn’t offer. They may have a money back guarantee on their annual plans, but not on the monthly ones.
Unfortunately, there is no free versions or trials available that I can find from their website. You couldn’t even download it without giving out your credit card info. For mobile apps, it is free to download from the app store but you will need to login first before you can use it.
ExpressVPN is not different from any other VPN services. They do what they are supposed to do – secure and give us the privacy that we need. But I find ExpressVPN affordable but not cheap compared to their competitors. They are on the higher end of the pricing bracket if you will ask me.
They do not have any trial or free versions that we can use to try it out, but they do have a 30-day money back guarantee even if you purchase it for just a month. This is something that other VPN services doesn’t include in their service. This can be your trial period and it will be much longer to some.
The VPN client is very easy to use and straight to the point. It will take you 2 click to connect to a server. And they are one of the few, that has over a thousand servers located all over the world.
