ExpressVPN is currently ranked as the best VPN, so if you are looking for a quality service to use on your devices, getting started with it on Windows is very simple.

Since ExpressVPN runs from a standalone app, there is nothing wrong with it when it comes to getting started and protecting your online activities.


Before you start using ExpressVPN, you should make sure that you are signed up for an account. There is no free trial, but there is a 30-day money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the service. The longer the subscription, the lower the equivalent monthly price. It drops to $8 if you pay annually which is a great VPN deal, although you can pay on a no-commitment basis every month for $12.95.

Just choose the subscription tier you want, either one month, six months or 12/15 month tier, your details, how you want to pay (including Bitcoin if that’s something that interests you), and you’re good to go.

The other reason you need to set up an account first is that without one and the activation code you provided on your account dashboard, you won’t be able to install it on your Windows PC (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 Windows and present you with that download link first.

Once you download the installer, follow these steps.

  1. open the ExpressVPN Installer.
  2. click sign in.

  3. Enter Activation code found in your dashboard.

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

The next step is to turn it on and choose a location. ExpressVPN has 3,000+ servers in 160 locations in 94 countries, so you have plenty of freedom. Simply select the location you want and hit the big “Play” button to play it.

There are a few other settings you might want to take a look at, just to make your experience a little better with the ExpressVPN app.

You have a great deal of control over what exactly goes through the VPN and what doesn’t. If you’re gaming, for example, you might not want a VPN between you and online gaming, but when you’re browsing the web or answering emails, you might. ExpressVPN lets you set up access on an app-by-app basis, so you don’t have to keep turning it on and off when you want to and don’t.

It’s also a good idea to set it to start small, and if you’re going to be using the same server locations most of the time, you can enable the app to use the last location every time it starts.

There are also extensions for Google Chrome – and as a result of the new Microsoft Edge too – and Firefox if you spend a lot of time in the browser. Both still require the Windows desktop app to be installed and running.

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 PC.
