How many devices can you connect to ExpressVPN at once?

by Joseph K. Clark

Best answer: ExpressVPN allows you to connect five devices simultaneously. You can install it on more devices than that, though you’ll need to disconnect one device to activate a connection on another once you hit that limit. Alternatively, you can use ExpressVPN with your compatible Wi-Fi router to connect as many devices as you want.

ExpressVPN is our top pick out of all the best VPN services out there, though its five device limit is actually one of its downsides compared to the competition. Five concurrent connections will be plenty for most people, so it’s a minor complaint, but other provides allow up to ten simultaneous connections, and some, such as Surfshark, even have no limit at all.

 ExpressVPN at once

You can install ExpressVPN’s apps across all of your devices and be logged into the same account. The limit only applies to how many devices are actively running a VPN connection. You can mix and match which devices have active links, such as phones, tablets, computers, smart TVs, etc., and once you try to run it on a sixth device, you’ll see a “Connection Limit Reached” warning message. To set up a new connection, you’ll need to disconnect one of your other devices.

Does ExpressVPN have an app for Wi-Fi routers?

ExpressVPN offers apps for Wi-Fi routers, which allows you to bypass its five device limit since your router counts as only one connection. It has apps for various famous Asus, Linksys, and Netgear routers, so it’s well worth checking out its detailed setup guides to see if your router is supported. There’s no extra cost for getting it set up this way.

Does ExpressVPN have bandwidth limits?

Though you are limited on the number of simultaneous connections, you are not limited in bandwidth. You can download and stream as much content as you like without ExpressVPN or your ISP restricting you or placing caps on certain types of content. ExpressVPN also lets you get around ISP data throttling, so you don’t have to put up with buffering.

Does ExpressVPN have fast speeds?

With all VPN providers, your speeds will depend on the server you are connected to. Generally, the further away a server is from your physical location, the slower your rates will be. In real-world testing, we found that ExpressVPN had fast and, importantly, consistent speeds for various server locations.

One great feature in ExpressVPN is the ability for the app to recommend the faster server location for you, and there’s a built-in speed test function so you can quickly check your current speed with a few clicks. We test and review VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:
