How many devices can connect to ExpressVPN?

Install on every device you own, and use five simultaneously with one 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 of your devices, and connect five at a time

One ExpressVPN subscription allows you to connect up to five different devices, of any platform, at any one time. If your household has an Apple laptop, a Windows PC, an iPad, an iPhone, 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.

VPN connections: Five at a time

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

You can connect up to five of the above devices to the VPN simultaneously, in any combination.

MediaStreamer connections

With our exclusive MediaStreamer service,* ExpressVPN also supports a range of devices that can’t install a VPN directly, including:

Because MediaStreamer devices are not connecting to the VPN, they do not count against the five-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 ExpressVPN on more than five devices

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

A supported router.

1. Get ExpressVPN 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 Mac or PC

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

3. Buy an additional subscription
