ExpressVPN users may see the following message in their app diagnostics:

WARNING: this configuration may cache passwords in memory -- use the auth-nocache option to prevent this.

This message does not compromise your privacy and security—it simply means that the ExpressVPN app reads your VPN username and password directly from your device’s memory. The device memory cannot be accessed without a physical access to your device. You may continue to use the VPN as normal.

For further questions, please contact the ExpressVPN Support Team via Live Chat for immediate assistance.
