Best VPN for multiple devices: Use up to 8

Install ExpressVPN on every device you own, and use up to eight simultaneously with a single subscription. Connect even more simply by installing ExpressVPN on your router.

Mobile phones, a tablet, a laptop, and a desktop all running ExpressVPN simultaneously.

Install on all your devices

ExpressVPN is one of the few VPN providers that allows you to connect up to eight devices simultaneously with a single subscription. If your household has an Apple laptop, a Windows PC, an iPad, an iPhone, a PlayStation, and a Samsung phone, you can connect them all to the VPN, simultaneously, with the same ExpressVPN subscription.

Keep in mind that you are free to install ExpressVPN on every device you own, no matter how many you have. The only limit is on how many may be actively connected at the same time.

Stream, work, or play safely

You have multiple devices and use them for different tasks. Whether you’re streaming a show on your smart TV, browsing for information on your phone, or writing a work email on a laptop, stay secure by installing the ExpressVPN app on all your devices. Then turn the VPN on whenever you use a device or, even better, simply leave it on.

How to use your VPN with multiple devices

Many people never come close to needing eight connections at the same time, but if you do, the simultaneous-device policy breaks down like this:

VPN connections: Up to 8 at a time

ExpressVPN offers easy-to-use apps for many of the most popular platforms around, including:

You can connect up to eight of the above devices to the VPN simultaneously, in any combination, when you subscribe to any of our plans.

MediaStreamer connections

With our exclusive MediaStreamer service, which is designed to enhance your streaming experience*, ExpressVPN also supports a range of devices that can’t install a VPN directly, including:

Because MediaStreamer devices are not connecting to the VPN, they do not count against the eight-device limit.

* MediaStreamer can let you access content that might otherwise be unavailable, but it does not provide all the security and privacy benefits of a VPN. To enjoy full VPN protection on these devices, or on Roku or Chromecast, connect them to the internet with ExpressVPN for routers.

How to use a VPN on more devices

If you need to connect more than eight devices to a VPN simultaneously, you have several options:

A supported router.

1. Connect unlimited devices to a VPN on your router

With ExpressVPN on your router, you can protect every device in your home, all the time. The router counts as only one device, no matter how many phones, computers, or streaming consoles you connect to it.

Buy a router with ExpressVPN preloaded, install it on a supported router yourself, or manually configure your router to use ExpressVPN.

Using a computer as a virtual router to share a VPN connection with an Apple TV, PlayStation, and Xbox.

2. Share your VPN from PC

With a little bit of setup, you can also share your VPN connection over Wi-Fi from your Windows PC. See the ExpressVPN setup tutorial to learn more.

3. Buy an additional subscription

If you’re already using ExpressVPN, you can purchase an additional subscription from your account page. Each additional subscription you add to your account allows another eight devices to use with your account simultaneously.
