We’re excited to share with you that ExpressVPN has, as of today, officially joined forces with Kape Technologies to together advance the state of privacy and security technology.
As we shared when we first announced our plans to join Kape, this move means that, thanks to their support and resources, we’ll be able to innovate faster and provide you with protection from a wider range of threats. We have long-led the industry with innovations such as TrustedServer and Lightway, and have no plans of slowing down.
We’re proud of how we’ve built ExpressVPN as a clear leader in digital privacy and security since 2009—but we’re even more excited for what this new chapter means for our ability to build a more private, secure, and open internet.
As always, we want to be transparent with you about what this means for the ExpressVPN service you’ve come to rely on and answer some questions that you may have.
What does this mean for me as an ExpressVPN customer?
We’re joining Kape to enable us to jointly level-up our ability to advance digital rights and protections, and so this means that we’ll be able to offer ExpressVPN customers like you an even better experience going forward by investing more in every aspect of our service and technology.
For now, nothing will change about your subscription or service as a direct result of this deal. In the long run, everything you’ve come to know and love about ExpressVPN will only continue to improve: our award-winning speed and reliability, premium global server network and bandwidth, 24/7 live chat, BVI jurisdiction, policy of not collecting activity or connection logs, and more.
Will ExpressVPN continue operating as its own service?
Yes, ExpressVPN will continue operating as a separate brand and service, run by our existing (and fast-growing!) team. We’ve been proud to lead the industry in terms of technology, product, infrastructure, customer support, transparency, and more—and we plan to continue doing so as an independent service. With the backing of Kape, ExpressVPN will be able to continue delivering more innovations and improvements to users.
Will you still be publishing regular third-party privacy and security audits?
Yes, we’re proud to have led the industry in transparency through independent third-party audits and penetration tests. These audits will continue to be a central pillar of our commitment to users, as we believe they are essential to enabling users to assess which VPN service they can trust and rely on.
How will ExpressVPN continue to uphold its high privacy standards?
ExpressVPN is, first and foremost, a privacy company, and our service has always been built on key privacy and security principles to ensure users are protected.
Our first principle has always been to collect only the minimal data required to operate a world-class VPN service at scale. This is key to minimizing data risk for users—no one can have access to data if we don’t collect it to begin with. That’s why we have a clear policy of not collecting any activity or connection logs, which we will continue as part of Kape.
In addition, all our services and operations follow the least-privilege model. Even ExpressVPN employees are authorized access to only the services and production systems necessary for their roles. We explain this and how else we protect your privacy and security in greater detail here on our Trust Center.
Digital privacy has never been more important. Together with Kape Technologies, we believe we’ll have the vision, talent, and resources to define the next generation of privacy and security protection and return greater control over the digital sphere to individuals.
