ExpressVPN is a Winner! Get the router too!
Just perfect, one of the best
When it works it is solid: sometimes great, sometimes meh. However, in China it often went down for days at a time, and occasionally for a week. As it was our only vpn, at those times we were out of luck. As a result of so many missing days, my wife had to drop out of graduate school. I hear it works well in other countries, and is working well for me in Hong Kong right now, but I cannot recommend it for Mainland China.
I’m trying to watch one of my favorite shows that is overseas and I can’t watch in the US. So I got the VPN and it hasn’t done anything yet. I’m still not able to watch my show and I might’ve just wasted some money on this. Please get back to me ASAP and let me know how to fix this.
I bought this service because of all the good reviews, but mostly because I wasn’t happy with how much Private Internet Access slowed down my connection. ExpressVPN is so much worse. Here are my results from Speedtest.net: no vpn (397Mbps); with Private Internet Access (130 Mbps); with ExpressVPN (37 Mbps). Why pay for fast internet to only be able to connect at the equivalent of the slowest internet?
I ran search in my iphone setting to get to expressvpn quickly. I found it but it also gave a summarized list of third party entities they share information with. Its a mile long and includes every company you are paying to avoid starting with google. I was led to believe i pay a premium so they get their money from private citizens and not ad dollars. Low and behold they look to sell us privacy but seem to get money from the ad industry as well. I want my money back
I tried using it to avoid people from hacking and all of that stuff. I tried to press the x in the corner cuz i didn't want a subscription i just wanted to use the app so ill be good. But it wont let me pass unless i make a subscription. So this app is basically forcing me to do a subscription ( if u didn't have to do a subscription plz tell me how u got around it because i couldn't, thank u)
I login with a us location and websites still see me in my actual physical location. Kind of defeats the purpose.
Since the last update connections are so bad that streaming video is next to impossible, this is the sole reason I use the VPN. Update: iPadOS version NEVER connects now!
I really appreciated having a VPN service available everywhere I’ve traveled in recent years, and I thank ExpressVPN for that. Having said that, I have two gripes that have not noticeably improved. First, ExpressVPN often drops the connection. I usually don’t know when it happens unless the app I’m using suddenly freezes up. Auto-reconnections don’t always work either, meaning I have to close ExpressVPN and sometimes reset my Internet connection before restarting ExpressVPN. Second, there’s a noticeable drop off in Internet speed while using VPN. I just ran a speed test from my laptop, and without VPN I got 360.90 Mbps for downloads. After connecting to ExpressVPN, the speed dropped immediately to 108.94 Mbps. That’s with an Ethernet connection. Speeds are slower on my phone over Wifi. ExpressVPN is certainly usable, but I expect more for the money I pay.
