ExpressVPN apps are now stronger than ever. That’s right. The latest iteration of ExpressVPN apps just received an security settings upgrade to stay ahead with best-in-class security practices. That means you can continue to go online with privacy, security, and freedom.

The latest settings are:

  • 4096-bit CA and SHA512 to authenticate ExpressVPN servers
  • only use TLSv1.2 with strong ciphers
  • AES-256-CBC for stream encryption

If you’re using ExpressVPN apps: you’ll see a “new version available” notification if necessary.

If you’ve manually configured an OpenVPN client: you can continue using your current configurations. However, to take advantage of the new security settings, ExpressVPN recommends downloading the latest *.ovpn files for your desired locations. You can do that by logging into the ExpressVPN website and going to the Manual Configuration for OpenVPN section.
