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.

Choose a protocol yourself or determine automaticallyChoose a protocol yourself or determine automatically

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.

ExpressVPN packages and payment options

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. As with many, the longer you order the service, the lower the cost per month. View the costs per period in the table below.

We have tried this money-back-guarantee. We were promised the money back without asking, and yes, within 3 working days we had the money back on our account.

You can pay in 14 ways at ExpressVPN. This allows you to use almost all possible payment options at ExpressVPN. Paying with Bitcoin is also possible, this ensures that you remain even more anonymous.

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!

I am in China. Using expressvpn to connect is really a pain and suffering. Elsewhere, there are no issues. When I visit China, and try to connect, I have to try hundreds of times and sometimes it still does not connect.

express vpn is perfect

Laara Clark gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I freaking LOVE ExpressVPN. My boyfriend and I figured we'd try it because we wanted to watch Criminal Minds on Netflix, but it's not available in Canada, once we tried it we never looked back. I use it literally every single day, on my laptop, then I can plug my laptop into the TV, so I can use it there. I've never had any issues with Netflix thinking I'm using a proxy or anything, it's always completely smooth. I also appreciate how easy it is to turn it off and on again, with a click of a button if I want to go back to my home region. We honestly couldn't live without it now!

Kamal gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

its an good vpn overall. speed is Faster then all vpn's Available in the market. Good for Streaming browsing or Netflix or Hulu or BBC. one more thing I noticed in this vpn its unblock all websites. like I use to unblock some Chinese websites use different vpn's but all fail to open but express Unblock sites without any problem. its for me 10/9.8.Why I gave it 9.8 because its need to improve littlebit like Apps need to improve or need more servers on single locations.Also I personally think Keys activations also comes to mobile other than Account sign in.Because its more secure way to sign in mobile other then Account or safe from hacking.

Aaron Cox gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I have been using ExpressVPN for many years and it has proven to be a valuable investment. I have tried a number of VPN services and ExpressVPN has proven to me to be the best. I travel to China regularly and I would not be able to obtain the connections I need to make my job successful. China is not the only place ExpressVPN help me solve my problems. ExpressVPN also serves useful to keep my connections secure whether I am traveling internationally or at home. I would definately reccommend ExpressVPN to anyone who wants to keep their connections secure!

As a senior citizen, who is retired, using computer technology is something I have had to learn later in my life. Today's youth learn early in their personal, social and professional lives how to maximize the advantages of technology in a safe and secure manner. A couple of years ago, I recognized that I needed some tools to help me stay safe while following news, my favorite Premier league team and online shopping. While searching the internet for the best tools to help me stay safer online, it became clear that I needed a VPN, in addition to the anti-virus and anti-maleware software that I currently use. I spent approximately 2 months doing Google reviews of VPNs and watching Youtube reviews of different VPNs. Most of the sources reviewed in a search for the best VPN were consistent in their reviews that ExpressVPN would be their recommended choice. These reviews disclosed a variety of ExpressVPN qualities that make it a safe and secure VPN. Based on my research summarized above, I selected ExpressVPN and am highly satisfied with my choice. During the past year I have kept ExpressVPN active on my computer most of the time that I am online. ExpressVPN works in the background without any effect on my computer speed. There have been times while online that my internet has been disrupted due to weather conditions. When that occurred, ExpressVPN immediately blocked my computer from being attacked. That is a great feeling to know how quick ExpressVPN reacts to protect me!
