Change your IP address instantly

Watch content from anywhere: Viewer getting blazing-fast streams atop a globe.

When you use ExpressVPN, your unique IP address is replaced with a shared one that matches whatever VPN server location you choose. You instantly appear to be in a new location, and your real IP address is hidden, so it cannot be used to identify you or limit what you see online.

Besides helping you stay anonymous, changing your IP address means you can access the internet as if you were in the U.S., the UK, Australia, Germany, or any of 94 countries all over the globe, so you can:

  • Watch American movies

  • Watch British TV

  • Stream sport from Australia

  • And much, much more!

Digital privacy in South Africa

Digital privacy in South Africa

With widespread internet access and a long tradition of free expression, South Africa is a relative oasis of internet freedom on the African continent. You can use ExpressVPN to get a South African IP address from anywhere in the world. Occasionally, however, legislation does come up that threatens the digital rights of South Africans:

The Protection of State Information Bill

Also called the Secrecy Bill, the Protection of State Information Bill is an attempt to regulate the spread of state information that as a consequence pits the interests of the government against the people’s right to free expression. Although the president refused to sign the bill in 2013 and sent it back to the National Assembly, critics say it still has the potential to limit journalists’ access to information and discourage whistle-blowers from exposing corruption.

Worried about privacy in South Africa?

Use a VPN to hide your IP address and encrypt your web traffic so that your browsing data is hidden from your internet service provider and other third parties.

Note: ExpressVPN is based in the British Virgin Islands and subject to BVI law.

ExpressVPN supports internet freedom

ExpressVPN is a proud financial supporter of nonprofit organizations that fight for your freedom on the internet, like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Internet Defense League, Fight for the Future, and Access Now.
