  • Aircove Go is a palm-sized, portable Wi-Fi 6 router that comes with built-in VPN protection, designed to support unlimited devices simultaneously
  • Built for users living in small spaces or away from home—Aircove Go is lightweight, powered by USB-C, and connects wirelessly

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS; 14 MARCH, 2024 Leading consumer privacy and security company ExpressVPN today announced the launch of Aircove Go, its latest portable router designed to provide users with VPN benefits on the move. 

Aircove Go is a compact and lightweight VPN router, created with a focus on user freedom and security. Developed exclusively by ExpressVPN, this palm-sized innovation brings privacy protection to users who want a powerful yet portable VPN solution for all their devices. Aircove Go delivers the same built-in VPN functionality, advanced protection features, and simple five-minute setup process as ExpressVPN’s first award-winning router Aircove.

Aircove Go setup process
Aircove Go’s easy, one-time setup process lets users turn any Wi-Fi connection into their personal VPN-protected network.

With public Wi-Fi readily available everywhere, it offers a convenient way for people to access the internet. However, a recent study revealed that 2 in 5 users have had their personal information compromised while using public Wi-Fi, with most incidences occurring in airports, restaurants, and cafes

“Many of us rely on public Wi-Fi to get work done, update social media, and stay in touch with loved ones. While useful, the nature of public Wi-Fi networks is such that they’re open to anybody to use. As a result, they’re typically less secure and private than your home network. We built Aircove Go to solve for that; so that you can take your home network on the road, and safeguard your online activities no matter where you are, even on public Wi-Fi. Think of Aircove Go as your digital security companion: You can use it in a home office, entertainment room, hotel, co-working space, and more,” said David Gilbert, staff product manager of Aircove. 

Protect everything, everywhere, all at once

With an easy one-time setup, Aircove Go ensures seamless device connectivity across new networks every time. At each new location, users only need to connect their Aircove Go to get every other device they have connected instantly—without signing in on each device, one by one. 

This is further complemented by a new key feature in AircoveOSWi-Fi Link—which helps users get online just by connecting to local Wi-Fi, no Ethernet cable required. Conveniently powered by a USB-C adapter, Aircove Go ensures hassle-free connectivity and portability anywhere.

Wi-Fi Link allows users to connect Aircove Go to an existing Wi-Fi network nearby without needing an Ethernet cable—once you are connected, you are protected.

“Since the launch of Aircove, we have consistently enhanced our VPN router experience to meet the diverse needs of our users. Our users tell us that they love Aircove and wanted a flexible solution that would allow them to enjoy the benefits of a VPN router, at home and beyond,” said David. “With Aircove Go, users can enjoy the convenience of a compact, portable VPN router that delivers the same security and reliability of a home network, regardless of the space they are in.”

User-centric design and features for every need

Designed to fit different lifestyles and needs, Aircove Go is a versatile router that delivers comprehensive device protection for all:

  • For families: Aircove Go’s advanced protection features include parental controls for blocking mature content and setting internet time limits. This makes it easy to protect your children’s digital well-being wherever you go. Easily drag and drop your devices into up to five groups, each with its own VPN location and advanced protection settings. Everyone gets to enjoy all their favorite online activities safely and securely. 
  • For travelers, digital nomads, and remote workers: Sleek, compact, and weighing just 250 grams, Aircove Go is small enough to carry in your pocket or backpack. Wi-Fi Link helps you turn commonly unsecured public networks into your own VPN-protected Wi-Fi bubble, so you can get online at a hotel, co-working space, or conference center with total peace of mind. 
  • For people living in small spaces: Aircove Go provides total device protection for spaces up to 750 square feet, catering to users living in small apartments, dormitories, and RVs. With smart home devices like voice assistants and baby monitors becoming potential points of entry for online snoops, they expose users to security and privacy risks. Aircove Go secures unlimited devices, including smart home appliances that can’t install VPN software, so every household member is protected.

“ExpressVPN has over a decade of experience protecting users all over the world. From helping them protect their entire homes to managing their passwords, our priority has always been to make digital security easy and accessible for all. We are delighted to provide more ways for users to protect themselves with the newest launch of Aircove Go. This is just our latest innovation and we will continue to expand our suite of offerings to help users take control of all aspects of their digital lives,” said David.

Aircove Go is available for sale on Amazon from today at US$169.90. Learn more about the Aircove range of routers here.
