Fast VPN protocols

Your connection could get faster than ever when you use ExpressVPN’s fast VPN protocols! ExpressVPN offers several protocol options, including:

Lightway - UDP, which we built from the ground up to meet the needs of modern internet users. Offering fast speeds, high reliability, and industry-leading security, Lightway is only available on ExpressVPN.

Lightway - TCP might be slower than UDP but connects better on certain networks. This allows Lightway to be used in a wide range of scenarios.

OpenVPN - UDP offers a strong combination of speed and security but it may not be available on every network.

OpenVPN - TCP may be slightly slower than UDP but is available on almost every network.

IKEv2, which is secure and well-suited for mobile devices, but slower than OpenVPN and Lightway.

ExpressVPN automatically chooses the best protocol option based on your network, but you also have the option of choosing between options manually.

Reclaim your privacy

As you’re connected to our network, your IP address and location are hidden from the outside world. Your internet traffic data is secured by strong encryption. You have your online privacy back.

Third parties—like the NSA, corporations, hackers, and your ISP—can’t see which websites you visit and how you use them. They can’t intercept your data. You are in control of the information you want to share.

Use public Wi-Fi with peace of mind

Wi-Fi hotspots are convenient, especially when you’re traveling, or when your mobile data plan runs out unexpectedly. But almost anyone can intercept your information on public Wi-Fi, leaving you at risk of theft.

Our VPN creates a secure tunnel between you and the internet, so nobody can spy on your online activity. It protects your internet connection at home, work, and school, too.
