Wars, conflicts, and turmoil increase censorship and restrictions on internet access. Right now, the obvious urgency is providing unrestricted, yet protected, internet access to citizens in Ukraine, Russia, and other war-affected areas.
As always, we welcome organizers and journalists, including citizen journalists and individuals supporting the situation on the ground, currently in an oppressive situation who need secure, uncensored internet access, to get in touch. Tell us how a VPN will help you in your mission to help others or support freedom of information via email@example.com so we can help with VPN access.
Growing demand for secure, uncensored internet access
As a VPN provider that gives its users secure, uncensored access to the internet, we are only all too aware of the growing demands to provide such protection—and the need has never been more urgent.
In recent weeks, we’ve watched the Russian government accelerate its attempts to control the flow of information among its people and its neighbors by suppressing news reports and blocking social media. This is antithetical to our mission to ensure everyone has access to the free and open internet.
Over the last decade, we’ve seen in our close work with journalists and activists how critical it is to have access to tools for staying connected and protected. And recent events have made it clearer than ever before that citizen journalism via social media plays a critical role during times of conflict.
Free access to social media and the broader internet is crucial for citizens to connect, organize, and overcome oppression—and we exist to be part of the solution.

Please give more help to the people of Iran for free communication. In Iran, your VPN is facing many problems to connect. thank you
Who decides what is “misinformation” and isn’t that in and of itself “oppression”?
That wording wasn’t the best and we’ve changed it.
I love this vpN
thats good all thanks
I absolutely love this service, the download and upload speed are second to none, it connects quickly, and the customer service is great. ExpressVPN is a well managed, well designed system.
is the journalistic or organizational subscription still available?
Yes, this is an ongoing program that began well before the war in Ukraine.
I emailed them twice and they don’t even reply my mail.
It is just an advertisement for the company it never worked
so you’re trying to help the oppressed in Europe express themselves freely; what are you doing for the millions of oppressed Conservatives in the Peoples Republic of Amerika who are being denied their First Amendment Right to Free Speech? Nothing? Thought so.
oh boohoo ur from the number one country in the world, sucks doesn’t it? US defaultism lmao, stay rotten 🙂
The US is not the number one country in the world anymore.
This article makes me want to cancel express VPN. Definitely not renew. Political bias showing quite a bit. Russia Russia Russia…poor Ukraine. Nah there bad and good everywhere. Quit hoping on the mainstream narrative. We use services like this to bypass censorship, deplatforming, and as much agenda bias as possible. Disappointed. Welp keep searching to find the few non agenda oriented companies.
I agree what about us normal people being bombarded by western bias media ???
why?? and this is just a question, cant those asking for free vpn either pay the small fee or band together and share a paid vpn
“Or help stop ‘mis information”? Yall just made yourselves sound real suspect right now. You should be neutral. Just a VPN that has no stake except to give freedom and encryption to do what u want without government or private entity involvement or suppression. But u trying to figure how to get information on how to deter “misinformation” means your doing what they’re doing. Deciding whats good information to let thru or not. Isn’t that what we are trying to avoid here?
Agree, this was poor choice of wording. What we meant was the free flow of information rather than stopping any particular information.
Hello. I am sorry and sympathize with Russia for its crimes in Ukraine and the problems of the oppressed people of this country. A point came to my mind that I raised many times and in different areas, but no answer was given.
I live in Iran and you probably know that Iran has the highest rate of executions and imprisonment of journalists. If we are talking about humanity and human rights, why does no one ever talk about the people of Iran, the people of North Korea, the people of Syria, etc.? Even from the Russian people who are captives of a bloodthirsty dictator! In Syria, Russia and Iran are slaughtering people, but no one mentions them. It is as if the oppressed women and children are not human beings! I wish one day, if we talk about human rights and humanity, it would be free from any prejudice, discrimination, dependence on skin color, race, religion, etc.
Unfortunately if you are using such phrases in presenting this platform as a solution, then you have already failed – “or stop misinformation” since is exactly what the sensors want you to do. Self sensor is as good as some else of Quasi-authority wants.
Thanks for pointing that out. Indeed, what we meant was the free flow of information rather than stopping any particular information.
unfortunately no one,s anwsering
everything is almost blocked
I think some of these people believe this ExpressVPN service will give them free internet service. Not understanding it is a service to provide Insurance to your internet is not hacked or for your person to be exposed.
We do provide complimentary VPN service to those who are involved in activism, journalism, or humanitarian service amid oppressive situations and need access to the open internet. But you’re right, a VPN cannot supply Wi-Fi or other internet service.
Congratulations, I live in the Chernihiv region, where hostilities took place, so far I have lost contact with my relatives in Russia and Kazakhstan, so I ask you to give me access to a paid version of your military service so that I can protect myself and establish contact with relatives. and not a journalist, but I have a lot of videos and photos of Russian crimes, so thanks to your VPN, I will be able to share them not only with relatives in Russia and Kazakhstan, but around the world
You are lying
And this is the word of the slogan that you provide services to all people who are involved in oppressive conditions
I have emailed you 5 times in the past week asking for help
And you did not give me any answer until you saw that I am Iranian
All your words are slogans and lies
This is an urgent request
Hello, please help me

expressvpn.com – business with human face
In Ukraine it is rumored that you can give us free accounts, but it seems that it is a lie and even in my request Ms. Lisa responded with a ridiculous tone….
ExpressVPN team, I am a Ukrainian journalist based in Lviv. I have been facing issues with the internet access and security. I tried few free VPNs but they were slow and I couldn’t trust them completely. I request you to provide me with a VPN account in this difficult time, so I could secure my phone and other digital devices that contain the sensitive information, so that I am protected from any possible cyber-attack. I have also sent a request on firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to your cooperation. I shall be thankful to you for this favour. Thank you.
Now everyone is a Ukrain journalist 🙂
In this situation, we are journalists who are on the front line of the war, and in Ukraine it is rumored that you can provide us with a fexpressvpn.com/blog/staying-co…ree account.
This kind of talk is far from
I’m sorry for the kind of answer you’re mocking, my job being a journalist is the second highest-risk job in the world, you don’t have the right to insult us Ukrainian journalists.
I’m not a professional journalist, I’m just a Ukrainian citizen who can share what’s happening here and communicate with the rest of the world through safe, private, and secure internet access.
Please help us if you can.
I’m not sure if there will be free access to the internet in the next following days and weeks.
I am living in Turkmenistan. Don’t work vpn. Help me
The US and the Governments of the Five Eyes nations , and the EU is also censoring sources of information from Russia and China and their allies, while Facebook, Twitter and Silicon Valley Tech, as well as the US-UK Mainstream Media endulges in and often publishes lies. You should protect us the activists and truth tellers in the US and Europe as well from the US Government, the CIA and other Western spook agencies. I am sorry to say your report and efforts are one-sided and partisan.
You are right.
Hello, this is the second time I have sent an email to receive a filter breaker
I am a journalist in Ukraine and all communication channels are filtered here, please help me to continue my journalistic activity.
Your policy faiks to recognise that tge public in Russia are being starved pf vital information while journalists and activists are prosecuted in Russia. You need to help by making your service free to Russian citizens while this crisis persists. You say you are for free speech. Well then do it in Russia.
We are providing help in Russia, Ukraine, and beyond.
I haven’t seen you help us, Ukrainian journalists, and give us an account for at least three months free of charge.
She made fun of us, Miss Lisa, who’s your partner.
What exactly do ExpressVPN do to help in your eyes? Make ExpressVPN free? Its like 5 bucks a month, you’re being a little dramatic don’t you think? I understand there’s economic implications during wars, but its not an exorbitant price. Pay it if its so important for you.
Miss Lisa gave me one full year free express vpn she is great person
