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!

Excellent service. Fast, reliable, and most importantly private. The app works with any device including Linux, which is particularly useful for my needs.

JADE B gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Since beginning my subscription with ExpressVPN 2 years ago, I have felt free to journey through the internet. Free from websites that want to track me and free from my ISP spying in on me. ExpressVPN has been nothing short of TOP NOTCH! I have tested and never once experienced any DNS leaks. Once, I had a question regarding my service and was able to (very easily) get in touch with someone in thier chat department. They we're courteous and answered each of my questions. Currently, I use ExpressVPN on my PC and mobile phone. After trying 2 other VPN providers, ExpressVPN has provided me with the ease and security I can depend on while manuevering the World Wide Web.

First if you dont have ExpressVPN then please read all of this Inhave wrote for anyone that isent convinced to.check out Exp.VPN.. To be clear I subscribe month NY month for maybe half a year, then 6 months and next time will be a year Subscription, so pmease understand I am in no way Work for(alo third party, not at all!)and to be clearly I am in no way Affiliated or do anything for Exp.VPN for financial purposes or finally anything at all(I'm a Stagehand) I am just doing this to make sure people protect and cloak themselfes from our oppressive government(s) among other various threats you may be avoiding or just need the best peace of mind and ease of use from your VPN, now to Express VPN and why you and everyone should atleast they it if your shopping for VPN's.. After I found ExpressVPN I knew the others were not the Prime Rib of Internet security and peace of mind, but Inhad found it, no sauce required(you wont need multiple VPN's and Tor's ect.) TO startBairly any drop outs and for that matter it has been months, just read EXP.VPN policies and how well you are protected by them even beyond the VPN Wall, you wont regret it, smooth app and plenty of locations to choose from Worldwide, every single server I have tried( some Asia, some United State's, mostly for me European servers all no problems for months and again that was only occasional drops when that was.) Now the only Server disconnects/drops now are not drops really but a security method to temporary disconnect you but keep you in suspension for a moment based on suspicious activity or various reasons Exp. VPN had to feel the need to protect you as they promise, either way it's to protect you and will connect you back to that server you were occupying once Exp.VPN or you could choose another server of your choice most nations have more than one server or multiple cities within a hypothetical nation of subject.. Even if you route through either or all at once multiple proxy, Subscription VPN(s) or free VPN(s) and Tor, Still get Exp.VPN as one of the multiple lines of defense. If you the person that had the patience to read this tonight HERE(thanks for dealing with long writeup) Thank you for reading hope this helps anyone on the fence. And Thanks Express VPN ?

Elise Adams gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Excellent support and a brilliant service. Always fast, and easy to use on many devices including the Apple TV. The one time I needed a little assistance in getting the most out of my subscription ExpressVPN’s support staff were very responsive and helped me resolve my issue.

Martin Boyd gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Excellent product. Reasonable price as well. Technically second to none. Some VPNs get discovered by some sites but I have not experienced that with Express. Money well spent!
