ExpressVPN App vs ExpressVPN Router
If you purchase a subscription to ExpressVPN, you will have access to their VPN App. VPN Apps run as a client on popular devices including desktops, Androids, and iOS devices. Unfortunately, a client VPN app trades flexibility for ease-of-use.
Get ExpressVPN On All Streaming Devices & Gaming Consoles
Are you looking to use ExpressVPN on the most popular streaming devices like the Amazon Fire Stick, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, AppleTV & Roku and PS4? Streaming media players and gaming consoles usually have no native VPN support (or even actively prevent this option). So to setup ExpressVPN on one of these devices, a ExpressVPN App Router is the only solution.
VPN Subscription Connection Limitations
VPN Service: 3-6 Devices VPN Router: Unlimited Devices
Using the ExpressVPN app for desktop, Android, and iOS may seem like an easy solution to adding a layer of extra security to your devices to a VPN. However, these apps limit the number of devices on which you can use them.
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.
The End To VPN Device Limits
While ExpressVPN is a premier service, using the ExpressVPN app for routers that allows you to maximize for almost limitless connections.
- No need to worry about going over VPN device limits.
- Save additional VPN connections for on-the-go usage.
- All connected devices count as one connection.
Save Time With An One Easy VPN Setup
One setup for your entire network: No more installing apps or setting up connections on individual devices. Once set up, any device connected to the ExpressVPN Router in your network will connect through ExpressVPN.
This might sound like an instant fix but it is important to note that VPN router app compatibility is limited to a specific set of supported routers. If your device is lucky enough to be supported, it will still likely require the correct firmware update and the proper variant of the device.
In one move, you can upgrade your router performance, privacy and avoid another monthly fee for more devices.
