Install ExpressVPN on all your devices, and connect up to eight at once.

Best VPN for multiple devices: Use up to 8

Install ExpressVPN on every device you own, and use up to eight simultaneously with a 6- or 12-month subscription. Connect even more simply by installing ExpressVPN on your router.

Mobile phones, a tablet, a laptop, and a desktop all running ExpressVPN simultaneously.

Install on all your devices

A 6- or 12-month ExpressVPN subscription allows you to connect up to eight different devices, of any platform, at any one time. Alternatively, our monthly plan allows you to connect up to five devices at a time. If your household has an Apple laptop, a Windows PC, an iPad, an iPhone, a PlayStation, and a Samsung phone, you can connect them all to the VPN, simultaneously, with the same ExpressVPN subscription.

Keep in mind that you are free to install ExpressVPN on every device you own, no matter how many you have. The only limit is on how many may be actively connected at the same time.

Why is ExpressVPN the best VPN for multiple devices?

This comprehensive coverage ensures privacy protection for your family, while letting you connect to different VPN server locations on different devices—all on one subscription.

Stream, work, or play safely

You have multiple devices and use them for different tasks. Whether you’re streaming a show on your smart TV, browsing for information on your phone, or writing a work email on a laptop, stay secure by installing the ExpressVPN app on all your devices. Then turn the VPN on whenever you use a device or, even better, simply leave it on.

Get more for your money

You could just use ExpressVPN on one device. Or you could make the most of your high-quality VPN by using it on multiple devices for no extra cost. Break through censorship, encrypt your connection, and virtually place yourself in different countries on up to eight devices simultaneously
with a 6- or 12-month subscription.

How to use your VPN with multiple devices

Many people never come close to needing eight connections at the same time, but if you do, the simultaneous-device policy breaks down like this:

VPN connections: Up to 8 at a time

ExpressVPN offers easy-to-use apps for many of the most popular platforms around, including:

  • Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chromebook computers
  • Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, and Nook HD mobile devices
  • Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick and Android TV systems
  • Supported Wi-Fi router models

You can connect up to eight of the above devices to the VPN simultaneously, in any combination, when you subscribe to our 6- or 12-month plans.

MediaStreamer connections

With our exclusive MediaStreamer service, which is designed to enhance your streaming experience*, ExpressVPN also supports a range of devices that can’t install a VPN directly, including:

  • Apple TV and other smart TV systems
  • Gaming consoles including PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch

Because MediaStreamer devices are not connecting to the VPN, they do not count against the eight-device limit.

* MediaStreamer can let you access content that might otherwise be unavailable, but it does not provide all the security and privacy benefits of a VPN. To enjoy full VPN protection on these devices, or on Roku or Chromecast, connect them to the internet with ExpressVPN for routers.

How to use a VPN on more devices

If you need to connect more than eight devices to a VPN simultaneously, you have several options:

A supported router.

1. Connect unlimited devices to a VPN on your router

With ExpressVPN on your router, you can protect every device in your home, all the time. The router counts as only one device, no matter how many phones, computers, or streaming consoles you connect to it.

Buy a router with ExpressVPN preloaded, install it on a supported router yourself, or manually configure your router to use ExpressVPN.

Using a computer as a virtual router to share a VPN connection with an Apple TV, PlayStation, and Xbox.

2. Share your VPN from PC

With a little bit of setup, you can also share your VPN connection over Wi-Fi from your Windows PC. See the ExpressVPN setup tutorial to learn more.

3. Buy an additional subscription

If you’re already using ExpressVPN, you can purchase an additional subscription from your account page. Each additional 6- and 12-month subscription you add to your account allows another eight devices to use with your account simultaneously. Alternatively, if you add an additional monthly subscription, you get another five devices to use with your account.

What is a VPN?

What is a VPN? image.

A VPN, or virtual private network, is a secure tunnel between your device and the internet. VPNs protect you from snooping, interference, and censorship.

As you connect to a secure VPN server, your internet traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel that nobody can see into—including hackers, governments, and your internet service provider.

Benefits and advantages of VPN

Laptop screens demonstrating the before and after process of changing a user

Change your location

Using a VPN changes your IP address, the unique number that identifies you and where you are in the world. A new IP address makes it harder to determine your identity and real location. With ExpressVPN, you can appear to be in the UK, U.S., Canada, Australia, or any of 94 countries.

Download VPN provided the best-in-class 256-bit encryption.

Protect your privacy

Changing your IP address with a VPN helps shield your identity from websites, apps, and services that want to track you. Good VPNs also prevent your internet provider, mobile carrier, and anyone else who may be listening from seeing your activity, thanks to a layer of strong encryption.

Router VPN that covers all devices.

Increase your security

Using a VPN protects you from security breaches in many forms, including packet sniffing, rogue Wi-Fi networks, and man-in-the-middle attacks. Travelers, remote workers, and all kinds of on-the-go individuals use a VPN whenever they’re on an untrusted network like free public Wi-Fi.

When should I use a VPN?

If privacy is important to you, you should use a VPN every time you connect to the internet. A VPN app runs in the background of your device so it won’t get in the way while you use other apps and browse the internet. And you’ll have peace of mind knowing your privacy is always protected.

But here are some situations in which a VPN is especially useful:

Airplane flying over the world.

While traveling

Exploring the world doesn’t mean you have to change the way you use the internet. A VPN lets you use the internet as if you were still in your home country, no matter how far you travel.

Enjoy the content you want: streaming TV and music on a laptop.

While having fun

A VPN lets you enjoy the sites and services you like without ISP throttling that could detract from your experience or outright blocking by your ISP or local Wi-Fi network.

Stay safe on public Wi-Fi: using a laptop in a coffee shop.

While on public Wi-Fi

Connecting to public Wi-Fi hotspots like those in cafes, airports, and parks could leave your private information vulnerable. Using a VPN on your devices keeps you safe with strong encryption.

Devices for gaming.

While gaming

Using a VPN unlocks games, maps, skins, and other add-ons that might be restricted on your network. It also shields you from DDoS attacks and reduces ping and overall lag.

Download anonymously. Laptop with download icon.

While file-sharing

P2P file sharing usually means that strangers can see your IP address and possibly track your downloads. A VPN keeps your IP address private, letting you download with increased anonymity.

Shopping browser window.

While shopping

Some online stores show different prices to people in different countries. With a VPN, you can find the best deals in the world no matter where you’re shopping from.

How does a VPN work?

To understand how a VPN works, it helps to first understand how your internet connection works without one.

Without a VPN

When you access a website without a VPN, you are being connected to that site through your internet service provider, or ISP. The ISP assigns you a unique IP address that can be used to identify you to the website. Because your ISP is handling and directing all your traffic, it can see which websites you visit. And your activity can be linked to you by that unique IP address.

With a VPN

When you connect to the internet with a VPN, the VPN app on your device (also called a VPN client) establishes a secure connection with a VPN server. Your traffic still passes through your ISP, but your ISP can no longer read it or see its final destination. The websites you visit can no longer see your original IP address, only the IP address of the VPN server, which is shared by many other users and changes regularly.
