Express VPN

ExpressVPN is one of the most popular VPNs on the planet. They promise lightning fast speeds and high security, which they actually deliver.

Based in the British Virgin Islands, ExpressVPN provide truly excellent customer service, with 24/7 live chat with highly trained technicians, and a 30 day money-back guarantee should you discover the service isn’t for you. ExpressVPN has over 1500 servers in 94 countries.

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.
