ExpressVPN is a premium VPN provider offering one of the simplest setup processes in the industry and fast, unclogged gateway servers spread across a number of locations. They are a trusted leader in providing customers with safety and security online.
ExpressVPN primarily offers its customers SSL VPN, via the OpenVPN software application. OpenVPN is widely used in the VPN industry by many providers because SSL generally offers enhanced security and privacy. ExpressVPN also offers PPTP, but PPTP is generally considered to be less secure, and therefore not as good, as SSL VPN via OpenVPN.
The quick and easy signup and install procedure for ExpressVPN is one of their major sell points. Their simple install has the customer download their customized version of OpenVPN with the login credentials already integrated. Customers do not even have to type a login or password to begin using the VPN service. It’s all done for them beforehand. Since they utilize OpenVPN software, you know are getting a quality application. ExpressVPN is definitely one of the fastest ways to get up and running with a VPN service for anyone new to computers, new to VPN, or just not interested in lengthy setup processes.
You can use ExpressVPN on many other types of devices as well, such as iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, Nokia, etc. This is done via their PPTP VPN service though, and customers will need to request the PPTP credentials and information from the Express VPN support team. Many providers offer this same feature, and it is quickly becoming a must-have for premium VPN providers. The fact that ExpressVPN offers PPTP in addition to OpenVPN is a nice feature.
ExpressVPN offers a risk free 30-day money back guarantee, though they do not offer a free trial per-se. Their plan pricing is not the lowest in the industry, but it also isn’t the highest either. This places them in the middle of many other premium VPN providers. So, the 30-day money back guarantee can be a good way to determine if the connection speeds are adequate in your area, before you decide to jump into a long term plan for more money.
