This guide explains how many devices can be connected to ExpressVPN simultaneously and what to do if you see a “Connection Limit Reached” warning.
How many devices can I connect to the VPN simultaneously?
With a single ExpressVPN subscription, you can connect to the VPN on up to eight different devices at the same time, regardless of platform (including virtual machines). You can install ExpressVPN on any number of devices, but only eight devices can be connected to the VPN at once.
Examples of possible device combinations
One ExpressVPN subscription can be used on:
- eight computers, or
- four iPhones, two iPads, and two MacBook, or
- three computers, one Kindle Fire, three iPhones, and one router, or
- any other similar combination regardless of device type.
If you have reached the connection limit and want to connect on another device, disconnect a connected device. To disconnect, click or tap .
If you are getting a “Connection Limit Reached” warning but have only eight or fewer devices connected, contact the ExpressVPN Support Team for immediate assistance.
What if I need to connect more than 8 devices?
If you would like to use ExpressVPN with more than eight devices simultaneously, you can:
- purchase additional subscriptions, or
- share your connection from a Windows computer, or
- set up a VPN router and connect as many devices to it as you wish.
