Comparing A VPN Router To A VPN App: Why A VPN Router Is Better

Why A VPN Router

Our team has quietly and stealthily released what we think is a revolutionary solution for users looking to simplify VPN setups in their home network – the FlashRouters VPN Privacy App For Routers. We thought this would be the perfect time to showcase how using a VPN service on a router separates itself from just using a VPN app on your phone or laptop.

The Shortcomings Of A VPN App

If you purchase a subscription to a Virtual Private Network, you will more than likely have access to a VPN App. VPN Apps run as a client on popular devices including desktops, Androids, and iOS devices. Unfortunately, a client VPN app trades ease-of-use for flexibility.

Client VPN apps are only compatible with specific devices and operating systems, often forcing users to update their devices and seek support for their device. Users are also only able to use VPN apps on a limited number of devices, often having a cap of 3-5 simultaneous VPN connections.

For instance, a basic subscription to ExpressVPN includes three simultaneous connections. This means that you can only use the ExpressVPN App on three devices at a time. As stated in the image above, adding more connections will require the purchase of additional licenses.

Connect Devices Without Native VPN Support

With support for wired and wireless connections, any device can reap the benefits of a VPN. Many Smart TVs, video game consoles, and various other Internet of Things devices offer no native VPN support. A FlashRouter remedies this issue by offering any connected device protection through your favorite VPN service.

Easily Switch Between Multiple VPN Servers And VPN Services

Do you use multiple VPN services for different servers or features such as supporting our preferred streaming video services? Do you wish you could easily toggle between different providers?

One of the largest frustrations for VPN users when it came to routers was the annoyance and confusion on how to manually configure the device and even worse the frustration on how to change servers.

The FlashRouters Privacy App has that problem licked as well. The FlashRouters VPN Privacy App is a user-friendly way to access your router settings and options. It runs directly from your Internet browser, allowing for easy network tweaking and VPN configuration. Some features include:
