Frequently asked questions
Just about! You can currently use ExpressVPN with PlayStation 4 and 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, and Nintendo Switch. Additionally, you can set up ExpressVPN on a supported router to enable VPN protection for every device in your home.
Unfortunately, it does not. MediaStreamer changes your apparent location without offering the same privacy protections as a VPN. In order to use your Nintendo Switch with all the benefits of a VPN, you’ll need to connect it to a compatible router by using the ExpressVPN app for routers.
In addition to keeping your data and files safe and hidden behind an encrypted network, connecting your Nintendo Switch through a VPN router protects you from potential DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks. You can also use a VPN to cut ping times between various gaming servers by connecting to locations closer to the network hosts.
It can. If your ISP (internet service provider) is intentionally throttling certain kinds of network traffic, a VPN can bypass these restrictions and restore your network speeds to their default levels. In some instances, users have even reported faster-than-average gaming speeds.
ExpressVPN’s core mission is to enable customers to use the internet privately and securely. Therefore, ExpressVPN does not and will never keep connection logs or activity logs. This means ExpressVPN will never log your IP address, browsing history, traffic data, or DNS queries.
