5 ways to use your VPN

See Them Now

This page is for users who see a Connection Limit Reached warning.

With a single subscription, you can connect five devices to ExpressVPN at the same time, regardless of platform (including virtual machines). In short:

  • You can install ExpressVPN on any number of devices, but only five devices can be connected at any one time.
  • If you reach the limit and want to connect another device, disconnect another device that you are not using. Click or tap on the green VPN ON button to disconnect.

If you’re getting a “Connection Limit Reached” warning but have only five or fewer devices connected, contact the ExpressVPN Support Team for immediate assistance.

Examples of possible device combinations

One ExpressVPN subscription can be used on:

  • five computers, or
  • two iPhones, two iPads, and a MacBook, or
  • two computers, one Kindle Fire, one iPhone, and one router, or
  • any other similar combination regardless of device type.

What if I need to connect more than 5 devices?

If you would like to use ExpressVPN with more than five devices simultaneously, you can:

  • purchase additional subscriptions, or
  • share your connection from a Windows or Mac computer, or
  • set up a VPN router and connect as many devices to it as you wish.

You may connect up to five devices to the VPN at the same time.
