Frequently asked questions

What does a VPN app for Android do?

VPN, or virtual private network, adds a layer of security between your Android and the internet. In addition to encrypting your online activity and protecting your personal information from third-party interception, ExpressVPN can also help you defeat censorship by making you appear to be in a different country.

Do I need a VPN app on my Android?

Using a VPN on your Android will ensure that everything you do is secure. By connecting to any of our VPN server locations in 94 countries, you can replace your device‘s IP address with a different one, protect your data on unsecured Wi-Fi networks, and access censored sites and services.

Can I use ExpressVPN on other devices at the same time?

Yes! ExpressVPN is available on a wide array of devices including computers, mobile devices, and much more. You can install ExpressVPN on as many devices as you wish, and up to five devices can be connected to ExpressVPN simultaneously using the same subscription. Or install ExpressVPN on your Wi-Fi router to connect even more.

Can I download a free VPN or VPN APK for Android?

Although there are free VPNs and proxy services available for Android, they are not recommended as they do not offer the same privacy and security benefits of paid VPN. Many do not work as advertised, some may even sell your data, and most will leave your networks vulnerable to attack.

What is a VPN APK?

A VPN APK is a VPN app available as an Android Package Kit (APK). On an Android device, you can download apps from outside of the Play Store, and one such way is by transferring or downloading APK files to your device.

APK files also allow you to download Android apps onto devices that run Android but don’t have Play Store installed, such as the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. You can also download an app using an APK if it is blocked in your country.

How do I install an Android VPN APK?

It’s really simple! Just follow these steps:

  1. Head to your ExpressVPN account dashboard or download the VPN APK here
  2. Under the “Set up your devices” section, click on “Android”
  3. Lastly, click on the “Download APK” button

Are VPN APKs safe to download?

While it is safe to download APKs, you should only do so from trusted sources—like your ExpressVPN account dashboard. Downloading APKs from less reputable sources puts your devices at risk of harm as they could contain malware.

Which is the best VPN APK?

The best Android VPN APK to download is ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN ensures a fast, private, and secure connection for every customer thanks to our next-gen 10Gbps servers, best-in-class encryption, and advanced features like VPN split tunneling.

Does ExpressVPN keep logs?

ExpressVPN is first and foremost a privacy company and therefore stores no activity logs and no connection logs. ExpressVPN also never stores any data that would allow anyone to trace a specific network activity or behavior back to an individual user. Read more about ExpressVPN’s commitment to privacy and policy toward logs.

Is there a free trial of ExpressVPN?

Every ExpressVPN subscription comes with a risk-free money-back guarantee. You can enjoy the full-featured version of ExpressVPN on your Fire TV Stick for up to 30 days and still get a full refund.

How do I know the ExpressVPN app for Android is secure?
