A VPN router is a router that has been modified to connect to a VPN directly. This capability allows the router to extend VPN protection to every device that connects to it.

People love ExpressVPN for routers
It is just straightforward. Compared to third-party firmware like DD-WRT, it’s just easy to set up, even for amateurs.
I got it preconfigured. It was plug-and-play. The interface is amazingly simple compared to setting up a router manually. I tried to help a neighbor set up their VPN with a different provider, very complicated and unsuccessful.
A very convenient router interface and a huge bonus for me is that it has its own firmware without any complicated settings. That is why I use your product, which for me has no competitors.
