Find your ExpressVPN account credentials
In order to use ExpressVPN on your Sabai router, you will need a server address, your account credentials, and the IPsec pre-shared key. This section of the tutorial will show you how to find all of this information.
Open the Welcome Email you received when you signed up for ExpressVPN. Click the link in the email.
If you can’t find the link, sign in to your ExpressVPN account.
Once you’ve clicked the link in the welcome email or signed in to the website, click on Set Up on More Devices.
Click on Manual Config on the left side of the screen and then select PPTP & L2TP-IPsec on the right. This will show you your username, password, and a list of server addresses around the world.
Please note this information as you will need to configure your Sabai router.
