ExpressVPN pricing and plans
ExpressVPN offers a single VPN service to all its customers, with discounted pricing if you sign up for six or fifteen months.
A single month costs $12.95, six months is $59.95 ($9.99/ month), and fifteen months is $99.95 ($6.95/ month)
Payment can be made through a range of credit/ debit cards, PayPal, Bitcoin, and various online payment systems
privacy, security, and logging
ExpressVPN keeps no usage logs, meaning that they don’t have any record of a user’s activities whilst connected to the VPN. They do log the user’s connection dates and choice of server location, as well as total data transferred per day, although they use shared IPs so tracking a user’s activities is all but impossible.
The OpenVPN encryption used is AES 256 with RSA-4096, and SHA-512 HMAC authentication. This is highly secure, and impossible to crack with current technology.
