We surveyed our audience and found that a majority of our very own listeners don't have a VPN -- 85%! We've had listeners write in and ask for the basics of using and installing a VPN. We're not telling you about this just because Express VPN is a sponsor. We actually use them, and to quote Kim, "This is the easiest VPN I've ever used."

ExpressVPN, has become known for its legendary speed, performance, and capabilities. It's also the only VPN Kim uses. In fact, she used it recently while she was in Europe and messaged use from her vacation, asking, "Are you guys using this? It's great!" Kim said she was able to access her favorite streaming content by using Express VPN; normally, that content wouldn't be available to stream in Europe, but by using a VPN, she watched everything and in high quality.
What is ExpressVPN?
For those of you who might not be familiar with the term, think of a VPN, (virtual private network), as a secure bridge between your device(s) and the world wide web. VPNs are very popular nowadays, but not for the reasons they were originally created.
At first, they were just a way to securely connect business networks together through the internet or allow users to access a business network from home. Fast forward to today. A VPNs primary function is to safeguard your online traffic from any and all forms of interference, snooping and censorship.
ExpressVPN has carefully engineered its apps and VPN servers to categorically eliminate sensitive information. ExpressVPN can never be compelled to provide customer data that does not exist.
The software itself is sold as a tool that focuses on two important elements, which are privacy and security. The service encrypts users’ web traffic and conceals their IP addresses.
Additionally, ExpressVPN offers access to more than 2,000 servers in 148 locations across 94 countries, alongside maybe the widest platform support you’ll find anywhere.
How to install/use ExpressVPN
Part of what makes ExpressVPN so popular among users and tech critics is its easy setup and usage. Platform support is another highlight. ExpressVPN provides apps for Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, Linux and others, a custom firmware for numerous routers. It gives users a detailed manual setup guide for Apple TV, Fire TV, PlayStation, Chromebooks, Kindle Fire and more.
The install stage is clear-cut and can be completed in five simple steps:
- Sign-in to your ExpressVPN account
- Download the app on your desired platform(s)
- Open the installation file
- Install the app
- Connect to the server
Voila! Just like that, you're connected and can safely go about your online business without having to worry about securing your personal data. The setup process, from start to finish, takes no longer than five minutes to complete. Pretty easy right?
ExpressVPN has been at the top of the list for both business and individual use and it’s clear to see why. It offers unbeatable performance and reliability while preserving your privacy with industry-leading security. One of the key attributes of ExpressVPN is its speed. It has one of the fastest upload and download speeds available.
The service truly stands out when it comes to streaming, reliably unblocking all the major services including Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, and Amazon Prime Video. That means you can always connect and stream HD content without any issues.
ExpressVPN acts as a proxy as well, which lets you mask or change your present location and surf the web anonymously no matter where you are.
