How to download and install ExpressVPN on Mac


We consider ExpressVPN the best VPN available. If you are looking for a quality service to use on your Apple devices, getting started with ExpressVPN is very easy.


Before you start using ExpressVPN, you’ll need to make sure you’re signed up for an account. There is no free trial, but there is a 30-day money-back guarantee that lets you try it out risk-free. Currently, you can get ExpressVPN for 15 months for the price of 12 paired with a money-back guarantee which is one of the best VPN deals out there.

Choose your desired subscription term, one to six months or a 12/15 month tier, enter your details, how you want to pay, and you’re good to go.

The main reason why you need to set up an ExpressVPN account first is that your online control panel is where you can download the macOS app. It is also where you will find your activation code. Without these two commands, you will not be able to install and activate ExpressVPN on your Mac (or any other device).

So, once you sign up and sign in, you’ll get a list of download links, although it should also detect that you’re on macOS and prominently present you with that download link.

Once you download the installer, follow these steps.

  1. open the ExpressVPN Installer And follow the instructions after installing the application.
  2. Once the application is installed, open it, enter a file Activation code found in your dashboard, and click sign in.

  3. Choose whether you want ExpressVPN to run on startup when you turn on or restart your Mac.

  4. Choose whether or not to share crash reports and other diagnostic information with ExpressVPN (no personal information is included).

This is! ExpressVPN is now installed on your Mac, and since it’s a standalone app, you don’t need to do any setup anywhere else.

Turning on the VPN and choosing a location is very simple from within the ExpressVPN app or from the menu bar. ExpressVPN has 3,000+ servers in 160 locations in 94 countries, so you have plenty of options. Simply select the location you want and press the big power button to turn it on.

Under ExpressVPN Preferences, there are a few other settings you might want to take a look at to customize your experience, as well as some advanced settings that seasoned users might want to take a look at.

If you have ExpressVPN running on startup, it’s also a good idea to turn it on and keep the app hidden (via the login items in your user preferences) so it doesn’t appear on your screen every time. If you are going to use the same server locations most of the time, you can enable the app to use the last location each time it is launched.

There are also extensions for both Google Chrome and Firefox if you spend a lot of time in one of those browsers. However, they still need to install and run the desktop Mac app.

With up to five sessions allowed at once on your account, you also have enough flexibility to run them on your mobile devices and laptop as well as your desktop. You can get a lot from ExpressVPN, so give it a try if you are looking for a good VPN for your Mac.

We test and review VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:
