ExpressVPN Review

This is the review page of ExpressVPN. Here you will find an in-depth analysis of the use of the VPN service at ExpressVPN. In this review, we look in more detail at the following elements: Speed, installation, app use, the number of servers and countries, support and the various packages and payment options.

ExpressVPN speedtest

We perform speed tests with In addition, we opt for the server determined by and a multi-connection. First we perform the test without the connection with VPN and then with a VPN connection. We perform these two tests directly one after the other *. After comparing speed with and without VPN, we then perform a test on a VPN server in America.

The speed at our test location is very high. This allows us to fully test the speed of the VPN service.

Speedtest without connection to VPNSpeedtest without connection to VPN
Speedtest connected with VPNSpeedtest connected with VPN
Speedtest connected with VPN in the USASpeedtest connected with VPN in the USA

The speeds at ExpressVPN are very high. Of course the speeds without VPN are not achieved, but the speed that is achieved is more than sufficient to be able to do everything online without bothering you with the VPN connection. With the connection to the American VPN you see that upload, in contrast to the download, does fall sharply. You won’t get any problems with this. Your American VPN is generally used for streaming, with the download speed being the biggest factor.

* Despite the fact that we perform the tests as directly as possible after each other, a speed test depends on many causes. As a result, a speed test is always indicative.

ExpressVPN Ease of installation

The ease of installation at ExpressVPN is very high. After making the payment you will immediately see the screen to download your preferred app. We opted for the Mac installation. In this screen a clear download button appears with an activation code that you have to enter later in the installation process to make your account active in the app.

We have downloaded and tested the Mac app, but ExpressVPN offers many more apps for different systems. See them all below.

ExpressVPN app easy of use

In this analysis, we thoroughly tested the Mac version of the app and found out whether it is handy and functional. The app chooses the best server for you to connect to, your so-called Smart Location (in our case Netherlands - The Hague). Of course you can also choose which server you want to connect to yourself. Switching between different servers is very fast and very intuitive.

In the app it is also possible to indicate which VPN protocol you want to use to connect to the servers. By default, these values are set to an automatic selection. The app then chooses the protocol that is most suitable for you at that time. Do you want to be in control? Then you can easily adjust that in the app.

The app also gives the possibility to do a speed test to all VPN servers that ExpressVPN offers. We have of course tested this but are not very satisfied with it. The function can be useful if you have no insight at all. We believe, however, that you often make the choice yourself to which server you can connect and the test took a very long time to complete, during the test we chose to abort the test because it took us too long.

ExpressVPN servers and countries

At ExpressVPN you can connect to approximately 3000 servers, at 160 locations in 94 countries. This gives you enough options to always be able to connect to the right server or location. The number of servers at ExpressVPN is really great and therefore scores very well.

A lot of servers to choose fromA lot of servers to choose from

ExpressVPN support

We are going to test the support of ExpressVPN by starting a live chat about a fairly simple question. We then look at how quickly customer service responds and how quickly our question is answered. In addition, we also check whether the customer service representative is friendly to us, even though we ask a fairly simple question.

After asking the question I received an answer from a person after 10 seconds. He first asked for our email address in order to be able to reach me in the event of a broken chat. After giving the email address it took 3 minutes before the question was actually answered. The answer was sufficient and accurate. When canceling the chat we asked to send us a copy of the chat to our email. I received the email with the chat history 3 hours later.

After sharing these results, we look at the support page of ExpressVPN. Is the support page intuitive? Do you find the answers to your questions quickly?

The support page of ExpressVPN is clearThe support page of ExpressVPN is clear

The support page is well-arranged and easy to reach. There is a clear search function available, which helped perfectly with our searches. Furthermore, you can quickly click through to the most frequently asked questions, live chat (24/7 support) and manuals for setting up the VPN. They have made many videos to provide simple explanations about the use of the VPN connection.

At ExpressVPN they have one product and that product is exactly what you are looking for, VPN. The costs at ExpressVPN are quite high, but they also provide a high-quality VPN service for that.

Conclusion review about ExpressVPN

We are very happy with the service that ExpressVPN offers. The VPN service is fast, the app is easy to use and support helps you exactly where you need it. All these plus points come with a high price, which we at therefore also find the only real disadvantage. After this review we definitely recommend you to try ExpressVPN!

EBarriga gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Great service. Very fast connection speeds. Lots of server options all around the world. Remarkable customer service. Very trustworthy. I 've been renewing my service for several years in a row.

Danny gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I have been a ExpressVPN customer for about 10 or so years now. I continue my service with them because I travel in and out of the country for the military very often and I can honestly say that I have never once had an issue with my personal information being stolen or being hacked. I appreciate the level of service I have received the few times I did have an issue with the app itself which was promptly resolved. I have recommended expressvpn to so many friends and co-workers and they too have thanked me for recommending them to ExpressVPN. I will remain a loyal customer as they have kept my personal web browsing and personal safe. Thank you. Daniel Perez

Graham Smith gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I had been searching for a new VPN and purely by chance I read about ExpressVPN. My previous VPN required a lot of work on my part to get it going and then keep it going. I have used ExpressVPN for two months now in both the US and Baku, Azerbaijan. I use it when travelling and on my Home computer. It's great watching the Six Nations Rugby at home in Baku, almost as if I am there. The cost is good as well.

P.L. de Boer gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Very simple, it's the best of all!

Miranda Ravetto-Wood gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

What´s not to love about ExpressVPN, it does exactly what it says it will do - enables one to watch and listen to all one wants. Provides a secure workspace PLUS the most kind and helpful and speedy customer service whether via the internet or in person. Wonderful for a non techie pensioner like me. Thank you.

Nordlicht1984 gave ExpressVPN: 4 stars

I tested many VPN-Services and ExpressVPN is on Top. Their Server Speeds are pretty great (even on far away Locations!) and all in all they seem to be quiet trustworthy. No Connection Drops even when you use it for a long time (Using it on my Router, works perfect!). The Support is always almost instantly available via Live-Chat, usually pretty friendly, supportive and open minded - you can chat with them about a few other things besides! But there are a few things that could be improved in my Opinion. The Double-Legitimation almost every time you logged into your ExpressVPN-Dashboard on the Website should be critically taken under consideration by the Company. I know, it`s for Security-Reasons, but it`s getting quiet annoying if you wanna check something quick and have to switch to your registered E-Mail again to get the Verification Code. What brings me to my next point. Improve the Privacy of your Users even further! For my opinion you`re asking too many personal Data in Chat. Encountered yet as well that I contacted the Support twice with the same problem and the Supporter told me that he wanna check my last Chat-Log really quick. Of course, that might be helpful to provide support, but that leaves some serious questions for the self claimed strict No-Logging Policy of the Company. No Logging should seriously mean No Logging. My Conclusion is still pretty good. I`m a satisfied customer who most likely will stay for a little while longer.
