ExpressVPN is one of our favorite VPNs thanks to its high speeds and strict logging policy.
What We Like
- No data retention laws: As ExpressVPN is based in the British Virgin Islands, it's not part of any international surveillance alliance.
- No logging: ExpressVPN never collected our browsing data, like our IP addresses, browsing history, traffic, etc.
- Split tunneling: We accessed public and private networks simultaneously.
What We Don't Like
- Limited simultaneous connections: Although we could have purchased more connections for more cash, under the plans themselves, we were limited to only five simultaneous connections.
- No customer support over the phone: We got help only through live chat or email, but that is pretty typical for VPNs.
Bottom LineExpressVPN is a solid option for privacy-conscious users, thanks to strict no-logging policy, the technology it uses in its VPNs and advanced features such as its RAM-only servers. Although it's more expensive than most of the VPNs we've tested, ExpressVPN is a good buy considering the overall value it provides to its users.
