ExpressVPN Review — Speed

I first tested the speed of ExpressVPN. I was amazed after opening the app because the screen immediately displayed "Connected" when I clicked "Smart Location". Then, I chose a location in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, and each connection was fast. It's also great for unblocked streaming platforms. I watched football games on Netflix and BBC iPlayer very smoothly.

ExpressVPN Review — Security and Privacy

ExpressVPN uses the highest standard encryption method in the industry - AES-256. Plus, it encrypts data using 4096-bit RSA key exchange and SHA-512 HMAC authentication. The adopted VPN protocols include: OpenVPN TCP, OpenVPN UDP, IPSec/L2TP and IPSec/IKEv2. Using ExpressVPN is super safe online, it can be said to be comprehensive protection, without any leakage.

In addition, ExpressVPN itself implemented a strict no-logs policy, storing neither activity nor connection logs. You don't need to worry about your information being recorded such as sessions, bandwidth, IP address, traffic data, etc. They did what they promised their customers. Their no-logs policy has been audited by the third party.

ExpressVPN Review — Advanced Functions

Kill switch: ExpressVPN refers it as "Network Lock", it keeps your internet traffic from ever moving outside the encrypted VPN tunnel even if the connection stops, so your information is always safe. The kill switch of ExpressVPN is available on Windows, Mac, Linux, and routers. On Android system, it referred as “Network Protection”. It's a pity there is no kill switch on iOS at thismoment.

Split Tunneling: VPN split tunneling lets you route some of your device or app traffic through the encrypted VPN tunnel while other devices or apps access the internet directly. This advanced function now is available on ExpressVPN for Windows, Mac, Android, and routers. I tested it on my twitter app and Youtube, it works fine.

Private DNS: Many VPN services protect only your internet traffic and leave your DNS requests exposed and vulnerable. ExpressVPN runs its own private, encrypted DNS on every server, making your connections both safer and faster.

ExpressVPN Review — Ease of Use

The interface of ExpressVPN is very intuitive, simple and easy to operate. Enter the app, click"Smart Location", the system will automatically find the server with the best network speed to connect your device. If you want to specify a VPN country or city to connect to, you can click the"…" on the right of the "Smart Location", it will open a list of all VPN servers and all servers recommended by ExpressVPN. All Locations contain all ExpressVPN's servers in 94 countries/regions, and they are listed in Asia Pacific, Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa. You can find the country or city you want to connect to here. Of course, ExpressVPN also supports direct search for a country or a city to find the server to connect to. Practical design!

If you click "三" on the upper left corner, you will enter the settings to specify the VPN protocol, app language, etc. The function of the corresponding button set here is very easy to understand and configure. Even if you are a new user, I believe no problem for you.

review use


Generally, I think ExpressVPN performs very well in almost all aspects whether it is on a computer or a mobile phone. The shortcomings are the subscription fees and the number of simultaneous connections. ExpressVPN only supports 5 simultaneous connections, and almost every subscription plan costs a little bit more expensive than its competitors. ExpressVPN offers 3 subscription plans: 1-year plan, 6-month plan, and 1-month plan. Among them, the 1-year plan is average at $6.67/month, which is the most cost-effective. If you think online security counts more, ExpressVPN is your best security & privacy protection expert, it is worth paying for, and ExpressVPN supports hassle-free refunds within 30 days!
