ExpressVPN: The Good
ExpressVPN has a strong set of features, and it’s a slick VPN to use.
Smart Server Choices
ExpressVPN is pretty smart when choosing a server for you, picking the fastest it can find in your selected country or location. In most cases, you just click the Connect button and let it do its thing. Finally, it’s one of the few VPN services that actively supports running Peer to Peer traffic, even including a tutorial on using the uTorrent client over VPN.
Manual Server Choice
You’re not stuck with ExpressVPN’s default server selections, of course. If you want to choose your own, then finding a server won’t be a challenge. Server options are divided into Recommended locations and locations further afield, in Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East and Asia or the Asia Pacific.
Good Mobile App
The service’s general ease-of-use carries over to the mobile app, which is near-identical in look and feel to the desktop client. It’s a straightforward tool to use, no matter which device you’re connecting over.
There’s a useful Killswitch function to instantly terminate your internet connection if the VPN connection is lost for any reason. This prevents your real location and identity being revealed
The Split Tunneling feature allows you to select certain apps to use the VPN and others to use your regular internet connection. That’s useful for any apps where you’re not worried about your privacy or security, but you need to have the fastest possible connection. What’s more, some streaming services won’t work if they detect that you’re using a VPN, so you can set these to use a regular connection.
