- No multi-hop connections
To help reclaim your privacy from so-called surveillance capitalism, add a VPN to your toolkit. A VPN protects you by routing all your web traffic through an encrypted connection to a remote server, hiding your identity and shielding your personal data. ExpressVPN is an excellent VPN service, boasting a massive global footprint and excellent privacy practices to protect your information. A visual refresh of ExpressVPN has revitalized its apps, but it’s expensive and not as packed with features as competitors that are similarly priced, or even cheaper.
How Much Does ExpressVPN Cost?
ExpressVPN – Trusted VPN 12.37.2 Crack Premium has three subscription options: $12.95 billed each month, $59.95 billed every six months, or $99.95 billed annually. As with most VPN service plans, the only difference is how long you commit.
The company accepts payment by all major credit cards, PayPal, and other services such as WebMoney. You can also purchase an ExpressVPN subscription with bitcoin. Notably, Editors’ Choice winners IVPN and Mullvad accept cash payments for even more anonymity.
What Do You Get for Your Money?
With ExpressVPN – Trusted VPN 12.37.2 Crack Premium you can connect up to five devices simultaneously. That’s average among the VPNs we’ve reviewed. Instead of slowly upping that cap, VPNs appear to be moving away from such restrictions entirely. Atlas VPN, Avira Phantom VPN, IPVanish VPN, Surfshark VPN (a recent Editors’ Choice winner), and Windscribe VPN don’t even bother to limit the number of simultaneous connections.
(Editors’ Note: IPVanish VPN are owned by Ziff Davis, PCMag’s parent company.)
In our conversations with ExpressVPN, the company often came back to the idea that it was focused solely on making the best VPN possible. As such, it doesn’t provide ad- or malware- blocking with its VPN or offer any of the add-ons that you might find with other VPNs, such as dedicated IP addresses. Some VPN companies, like NordVPN and CyberGhost, have expanded to include other branded products. Hotspot Shield VPN goes the other direction, providing access to several other privacy and security tools from other vendors.
ExpressVPN does provide split tunneling, which lets you designate what traffic should travel through the VPN’s encrypted connection and what should travel outside it. Split tunneling is useful for activities like gaming or streaming media, which require a lot of bandwidth but are comparatively low risk.
Unfortunately, that’s the end of ExpressVPN’s privacy features. The service does not provide push-button access to the Tor anonymization network, which bounces your requests through several volunteer intermediaries for even more privacy. Note that you do not need a VPN to access Tor, it’s just very convenient.
You also cannot use ExpressVPN to create a multi-hop connection. This routes your traffic through two VPN servers. That way, your privacy remains secure even if the second VPN server has been compromised. Only Editors’ Choice winners NordVPN and ProtonVPN offer access to Tor, multi-hop connections, and split tunneling.
ExpressVPN – Trusted VPN 12.37.2 Crack Premium are a mature technology and as such there are many ways to create a VPN connection. OpenVPN is our long-standing favorite, as it is open-source and has been picked over for potential vulnerabilities by anyone with the interest to do so. WireGuard is the open-source heir apparent to OpenVPN, and it claims better speeds and newer encryption technology. It is, however, so new that not every VPN company has fully embraced it.
ExpressVPN does not offer WireGuard and has instead focused on OpenVPN and its own protocol called Lightway. This protocol uses the open-source wolfSSL cryptography library, which is smart because trying to build new cryptographic systems isn’t a safe bet.
Lightway and OpenVPN are supported on ExpressVPN’s Android, Linux, Mac, and Windows apps. They are also available for routers configured to use ExpressVPN. Currently, the ExpressVPN iOS app only supports OpenVPN as well as IKEv1/2. The macOS and Windows apps have legacy support for L2TP, but we advise using this older protocol. The ExpressVPN Windows app also supports IKEv2.
Servers and Server Locations
Part of what you are paying for with a VPN subscription is access to the company’s fleet of VPN servers. These are the machines through which your web traffic will flow. It’s generally good to have a diverse distribution of servers, which ensures that you’ll be able to find one close by, no matter where you travel, and likely get better service because of that proximity. It also gives you more options for spoofing your location.
ExpressVPN – Trusted VPN 12.37.2 Crack Premium offers 160 server locations across 94 countries. Among our top-rated VPNs, ExpressVPN offers the best balance of hardware and virtual servers in the most countries (more on this later). It has held this distinction for a long time, but CyberGhost is catching up, offering servers in 90 countries. In addition to having many server locations, ExpressVPN also excels in geographic diversity, with several servers in Africa and excellent coverage across South America—two continents often underserved or completely ignored by other VPN companies. ExpressVPN also maintains servers for some countries with repressive internet policies, including Turkey and Vietnam.
To support their massive fleets of servers, VPN companies often make use of virtual servers and virtual locations. Virtual servers are software-defined servers, meaning that one piece of hardware can host multiple virtual servers. Virtual locations are servers configured to appear as if they are in a country other than where that physical hardware is located. Neither is necessarily bad, but we prefer it when companies disclose where, exactly, customer data is heading.
ExpressVPN is transparent about its use of virtual servers. An explanatory page says that less than 3% of servers are not physically located where they appear to be, and it lists their true location. ExpressVPN’s Turkey, Venezuela, and Vietnam servers, for example, are all virtual. This sounds reasonable.
To protect its servers in data centers around the world, ExpressVPN says it uses RAM-only servers, which do not write any information to disk. ExpressVPN also says it uses a cryptographic key scheme that assigns unique keys for each server and does not store those keys on disk, making it much harder for an attacker to impersonate an ExpressVPN server. Those servers, ExpressVPN says, are in third-party data centers that limit access to servers.
That said, most consumers probably do not need a lot of server locations—virtual or otherwise. What they probably need are as many servers as possible, as near as possible to their homes. This really cuts into ExpressVPN’s value proposition. The company offers an all-around excellent service, but its best feature is really geared toward the frequent traveler, the businessperson, or someone with very specific needs.
Most VPN companies will spin up servers as needed (virtual or otherwise) to meet demand. As such, the overall number of servers is influenced by how many subscribers a company can boast. But a large server fleet also means you’re more likely to find an uncrowded server, potentially getting you better performance. ExpressVPN has over 3,000 servers at its disposal. CyberGhost currently leads the pack with over 6,500 servers.
Your Privacy With ExpressVPN
The company says it stores no logs of user activity, originating IP address, the VPN IP you connect with, the session duration, nor a connection timestamp. That’s what you want to hear from a VPN company. Better still, ExpressVPN makes it clear in its policy (and verified to me) that the company does not sell user data.
The company does, however, collect some information. It gathers the aggregate amount of data transferred by each user. It logs the most recent date, but not time, a successful connection has been made. The company also notes which VPN location you connect with—but not a specific public-facing IP address. ExpressVPN says this information is not sufficient to identify a specific individual, since it would be identical to many other users. Still, customers should always be skeptical of anonymized data, since it doesn’t always stay anonymous.
Hands On With ExpressVPN for Android
We tested the company’s Android VPN on a Samsung A71 running Android 11. The app looks identical to the iOS version of the app, but with more features. The layout has the same cool 70’s vibe found on the Windows and iOS versions, with cool greys, purples, and orange tones.
There is a large connect button in the center of the screen, and below that you can find a “time protected” bar. This feature tells you how often you are using the VPN while you are connected to the internet. Express VPN for Android’s features include split-tunneling, a Kill Switch, and auto-connect settings.
When using a VPN, it’s a good idea to check to make sure it is protecting your information. We navigated to DNSLeakTest.com and ran an extended test while connected to a server in Toronto. Our real IP address was hidden and our DNS information secure.
We then went to YouTube while connected to the Toronto server. We were able to play videos without any interruptions or buffering. We also visited Twitch.tv and loaded up a couple of streams. We saw more ads than usual (two each time) but the video loaded quickly, and it played at a high resolution with no lagging or buffering.
Hands On With ExpressVPN for iPhone
We installed the ExpressVPN – Trusted VPN 12.37.2 Crack Premium iOS app on an iPhone XS running iOS 14.5.1. The app features the pleasing warm autumnal color scheme seen in the Windows version, as well as a large connection button in the middle of the screen.
You can choose a VPN location from a list of countries and cities, and where applicable, a short list of servers within each city. The app doesn’t appear to have as many server options as a competitor like Tunnelbear VPN offers, and the iOS app is missing a lot of the features found on the Windows version of the app. There is neither Kill Switch nor split-tunneling to be found on the iOS app. You do, however, get an auto-reconnect feature that will restart your VPN when your internet connection restarts.
Every VPN should protect your IP address and not leak your DNS requests—that’s the point of using a service like ExpressVPN. We visited DNSLeakTest.com and performed an extended test while connected to a server in Stockholm, Sweden. Our real IP address and DNS information stayed private while connected to that server.
We visited YouTube Premium while connected to the same server in Stockholm, Sweden. We didn’t experience any interruptions or lag while watching a few videos and didn’t see any ads. We then went to Twitch.tv and watched a couple of streams. Each one took a few seconds to load, but they played without any buffering or interruptions.
Hands On With ExpressVPN for macOS
ExpressVPN – Trusted VPN 12.37.2 Crack Premium does not have a MacOS VPN app in the App Store, so we downloaded it from the vendor’s website. we installed the app on a MacBook Air (2020) running Big Sur 11.2.2.
The app’s color scheme looks just like the iOS and Android versions, with its retro appeal and autumnal tones. The app features a large connection button in the middle of the interface, a list of apps and sites you can pin to the dashboard, and a server list. You can choose which server you want to use in the city and country of your choice. Beyond that, the macOS app offers very few features. The ExpressVPN app has a Kill Switch, but it doesn’t feature the split-tunneling found in the Windows version.
To make sure our IP address wasn’t being leaked, we navigated to DNSLeakTest.com and ran an extended test while connected to a server in Hong Kong. The server did not leak our information.
We remained connected to the Hong Kong-based server and tested the speed and reliability of the VPN by visiting YouTube and watching a few videos. The videos loaded within a few seconds, and we didn’t experience any lag or buffering. We went to Twitch.tv and watched a few streams. Each loaded in an instant with crystal clear video and sound.
Hands On With ExpressVPN for Chrome OS
We downloaded the ExpressVPN – Trusted VPN 12.37.2 Crack Premium Android app onto a Dell Chrome 3100 with an Intel Celeron Processor. The app has an easy-to-use interface that makes connecting to a VPN server simple. The app also has a small screen footprint that you can expand as needed.
ExpressVPN on Chrome OS has split tunneling and an auto-connect option. Most of the app’s features can be found in the Privacy and Security menu. There’s an IP address checker, a DNS leak test, a WebRTC leak test, and there’s also a password generator.
Speed and Performance
To get a sense of the impact a VPN has on your internet experience, we run a series of tests using the Ookla Speedtest tool and find a percent change between Speedtest results with and without the VPN running. You can read the nitty-gritty of our methodologies, if you wish.
Editors’ Note: Ookla is owned by PCMag’s parent company, Ziff Davis.
In our testing, we found that ExpressVPN decreased upload and download Speedtest results by 59.8% and 74.4%, respectively. It increased latency by 50.9%, which is slightly better than our median results for the category.
Access to the PCMag Labs has been limited due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we’re presenting our Speedtest results in a rolling fashion, posting the results for newly tested products throughout the year. The chart below shows all of our latest results.
