The very best forSpeed, Security and Privacy!
The title pretty much says it all. Those are the three main reasons most people get a vpn in the first place. I’ve researched every vpn that I have been able to discover, personally had accounts with five other major vpn providers and talked to others about their experiences using this very important yet highly misunderstood service.
It is amazing to me that most of us browse the internet with rose colored glasses, especially anyone under the age of 40 who grew up in the internet age. If you take one thing from this review it should be this: PEOPLE LIE. OK, maybe that is kinda harsh. How about this: people will say just about anything to sell a product. They often bend the truth. Just because you read it on the internet does NOT make it true. There are no internet police verifying the accuracy of ads and misrepresentations.
I have found at least 10 vpn’s claiming to me the fastest,and at least as many to be the most secure or providing the highest levels of security. But dig a little and these claims are inevitably false. Only a few back up their words with actions. Express vpn more and better than any I have found. And no, I do not have shares in express vpn.
In this day of internet theft, government snooping into our private lives as well as the need to keep up with high speed internet service, only one can claim to be the number one provider of all three - Express vpn!
Don’t Waste Your Time
Everything starts off fine, but after about a month the issues will start. At first I thought it was just my wife and operator error, but a month later I started to have more and more issues. So let’s begin.... do you love scrolling through your news feed or watching videos on Facebook? Not anymore after a joyous ~15min you’ll be forced to troubleshoot your connection as it drops and struggles to reconnect. When and if you get it working again, usually by manually disconnecting or switching locations Facebook will force you to begin anew as it refreshes your feed since you just got on the internet...again. You will get to spend quality time with customer service time and just when you think their advice worked... guess what... it didn’t. Lost connection, waiting, manually disconnecting, trying to reconnect, waiting, manually disconnecting, switching locations, more waiting, manually disconnecting, switching locations, and more waiting, deleting app, reinstalling app, more waiting, resetting settings to prescribed settings per customer service, trying to connect, more waiting, restarting your phone, more waiting, contacting customer service, new prescription settings, and finally a connection till you guessed it... tomorrow or sooner just to start again.
Good at first, now not so much.
I initially was all about Express VPN. In the beginning it worked as advertised. Two months later would drop unexpectedly and phishing spam seem to increase at alarming rate about that same time. Here lately it says I’m connected but apps or browsers report “timed out” or “no internet connection”. Tried different servers and that solves the problem short term only as the same issues creep back up, sometimes only after a day or two. I’ve had to uninstall the app on at least 3 occasions to get it working. It does what it advertises but only w/certain browsers. It does work w/all major streaming platforms, you might have to try a few servers to find one that it will work with but that’s to be expected. I got this app & subscription because I would not connect to a public WiFi/hotspot or even Barnes & Noble network for fear of my personal info being compromised, &, at the time our carrier did not have unlimited data. Connecting to a public hotspot is 50/50 that it’ll work smoothly, but I suspect that has more to do with the way the public hotspot is configured because on a private network this app works decent, when it works. Bear in mind nothing is fool proof. This app is certainly no exception.
