Back to overview

ExpressVPN is undoubtedly one of the most famous VPN services, and thanks to its ease of use and quality service that it provides. Thus, the service makes use of apps for both smartphones and desktops, and while it features more than 100 server locations. In addition, it is extremely easy to connect to the VPN: a few mouse clicks are enough to get that done.

ExpressVPN review

ExpressVPN was founded in 2009 and has built a strong reputation over the years. Reliability and good customer support are central to the service, and of course offers you the opportunity to reach fast-paced streaming content. ExpressVPN uses secure encryption technology to protect your privacy while surfing, using IP addresses from different countries. ExpressVPN of all providers, is undoubtedly one of the most reliable and most importantly, one of the safest.

The features and capabilities of ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN offers some surprising benefits. As such, you can to make the VPN connection with up to three different devices, and you can easily unblock websites that are normally not available in your country. Powerful encryption capabilities ensure your privacy while surfing online. You can also not complain the speed of the connection to the servers, and apps that have been developed are completely free to use for devices.

ExpressVPN is compatible with various systems, and connecting to the VPN server just takes a single click. The service then provides access to more than 100 servers in more than 80 countries, and on top of that, you can contact the customer service every day.

The latest developments in ExpressVPN

If ExpressVPN users do not have to remember what server did their last job, the software automatically saves it after all the last three servers used. That is not the only innovation: developing a new algorithm – to calculate the speed between the computer and the servers – has been updated. This makes it not only easier for a company to know which servers users need, it also points the user to find the best and fastest server

ExpressVPN speed

The quality of the VPN server is largely determined by its speed, and also in that area ExpressVPN is very reliable. That speed is otherwise always the same, anywhere in the world. With other VPN services, the maximum speed is often limited, but this is not the case with ExpressVPN. It is the perfect service if you want to access streaming video sites (like Hulu, Pandora or BBC), or you can use it as support for downloads.

ExpressVPN Speed Test

Several speed tests were performed to test the connection to the ExpressVPN servers, showing that sites like can simply be viewed without delay or lower quality – and that was on a US server. If you are a user in the EU as a user of ExpressVPN, it is the ideal service for anonymous downloading or online gaming.

Protect your privacy with ExpressVPN

A VPN service is selected by a user as it can safeguard their privacy and security of their data and location. Information while surfing is often unintentionally available to others, and this is avoided with a VPN service.

ExpressVPN ensures protection of your data through a special encryption key, which scored very high according to international requirements. Thus, not just a few home and corporate users are optimally protected, but it can also be used for special protection at hotspots. This is for you, even if you are connected to the Internet via a public WiFi protection is also possible. ExpressVPN is therefore also ideal for use in, for example, airports, train stations or bus stations.

In addition, ExpressVPN ensures that third parties do not see your personal information by first collecting that information at registration. The traces that you leave on the internet are therefore erased as soon as the connection is disconnected. In theory, this would say that your information would not be visible even for a government organization, just because they do not own ExpressVPN.

The price of ExpressVPN

Like most VPN services, the service of ExpressVPN available in the form of various packages, and can be used on mobile devices.

  1. 1 year unlimited VPN access for € 7.81 (converted from USD to Euro)
  2. 6 months unlimited VPN access for € 9.40 (converted from USD to Euro)
  3. 1 month unlimited VPN access for € 12.20 (converted from USD to Euro)

ExpressVPN Prices

in addition, the package includes a guarantee that your money is refunded if you are not satisfied. While these prices are not the lowest in comparison to other providers, they are still low. Plus, you are sure of ExpressVPN quality, where reliability and speed are key traits.

In addition, you can try the service for 30 days (as well as a money back guarantee), after which you can still choose to use it or not. Displeased? No problem, because the service will pay you back to the last penny. Paying for monthly service is possible via various methods, including Visa, PayPal, American Express, MasterCard, Amex, Discover, and even with Bitcoins.

The possibility of using ExpressVPN in different locations

As already mentioned, with ExpressVPN it is possible to use different servers in more than 80 countries in Europe, America and Asia.

Word Origin and History for goose

"a large waterfowl proverbially noted, I know not why, for foolishness" [Johnson], Old English gos, from Proto-Germanic *gans- "goose" (cf. Old Frisian gos, Old Norse gas, Old High German gans, German Gans "goose"), from PIE *ghans- (cf. Sanskrit hamsah (masc.), hansi (fem.), "goose, swan;" Greek khen; Latin anser; Polish gęś "goose;" Lithuanian zasis "goose;" Old Irish geiss "swan"), probably imitative of its honking.

Spanish ganso "goose" is from a Germanic source. Loss of "n" sound is normal before "s." Plural form geese is an example of i-mutation.

Meaning "simpleton" is from 1540s. To cook one's goose first attested 1845, of unknown origin; attempts to connect it to Swedish history and Greek fables have been unconvincing. Goose egg "zero" first attested 1866 in baseball slang. The goose that laid the golden egg is from Aesop.


"jab in the rear," c.1880, from goose (n.), possibly from resemblance of the upturned thumb to a goose's beak. Related: Goosed; goosing. In 19c. theatrical slang, to be goosed meant "to be hissed" (by 1818).
