How can I use a VPN on Linux?

Our VPN, or Virtual Private Network, creates a secure tunnel between your Linux machine and every website and service you access on the internet. With our frequently optimized Linux apps for VPNs (including VPN for Ubuntu), you can take advantage of this secure data tunnel and connect with peace of mind.

Just open a terminal window, type "expressvpn connect" and you’re on your way.

No limits

A Linux VPN lets you use the internet your way.

When you go online with ExpressVPN's Linux app, we give you a new IP address. This IP address makes you and your machine appear as though you are in a different location, giving you private access to the websites, videos, apps, and services that you love.

Since we assign shared IP addresses, no one can match you to a unique IP. Your online activity and browsing will stay private — private from your ISP, the government, and everybody else.

So you can use the internet on your terms.

Secured with ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN's Linux app lets you go online privately and securely.

ExpressVPN's apps for Linux, which include distros like Ubuntu, create an encrypted tunnel between your computer and every website, app, and service you use online.

The VPN tunnel prevents your credit card information, emails, passwords, and download history from falling into the wrong hands and conceals your browsing history and other online activity from prying eyes.

The tunnel stops third parties from viewing, logging, stealing, and tampering with your internet traffic data, and secures the Wi-Fi hotspots you use in coffee shops, libraries, hotels, and airports. All anyone can see is encrypted traffic moving between your machine.

So you can go online with peace of mind.

Speed is great and customer service is outstanding. Friendly interface and easy to use. Most recommended. Caro
I travel a lot and have been using ExpressVPN for over a year now, no problems whatsoever and get good quick service and connections wherever I am in the world... Definitely great value for money. KC
I like ExpressVPN, everything works as intended and I even had a stupid question that was answered quickly and very friendly by the support. Love it! Jeremy
I would like to say that I was extremely satisfied with ExpressVPN while my children and I were in Asia. We were homeschooling, and it was important that we were able to reach those websites from Asia with acceptable response time. I was also able to keep friends and family updated through Facebook. We are back in the US and no longer need our VPN, but I will highly recommend ExpressVPN to friends and will sign up again when I go back to Asia! Joan
