Try changing your VPN protocol. VPN protocols are the methods by which your device connects to a VPN server. By default, ExpressVPN uses the UDP protocol, which may be blocked in some countries.
To switch to a different protocol, click on the ellipsis (…), then click Options.
In the Protocols tab, select the protocol you want to use, then click OK.
For optimal performance, please choose the protocols in the following order:
- OpenVPN TCP
Note: ExpressVPN does not recommend using PPTP unless absolutely necessary. PPTP offers only minimal security.
