What is a VPN router?
5 reasons to get a VPN router
A VPN works best when it's always on. With a VPN on your router, you'll never have to worry about forgetting to connect to a VPN server, because you're always protected right from the source.
Don't bother installing different apps on all your devices. VPN on your router protects each new device instantly. It's as easy as joining a home Wi-Fi network, no extra steps.
Use a VPN on any Wi-Fi-enabled device, even ones that can't normally run VPN software, like PlayStation, Xbox, and other gaming consoles. If it has Wi-Fi, it's protected.
Use more devices
Don't worry about different VPN subscriptions for different devices. Use one ExpressVPN subscription on an unlimited number of devices simultaneously.
