Editors' review

From the name, you might think VPN Express is another VPN connectivity client. But you'd be wrong. VPN Express is a VPN, but only between your iOS device and the VPN Express servers. Through that server, your location and identity can be masked. Think of it as a proxy server for your iDevice. Installation is quick and the free app includes 300MB of traffic (one shot only) after which you pay for data transfers either in GB or in days used.

VPN Express can be used to hide your online identity and also to access sites that might be blocked in your area or by your provider for some reason. The connection uses 128-bit encryption (good but not great) and is quite fast, but there is a delay while accessing a site or service directly that is noticeable occasionally. Still, to reach sites you can't normally reach, or to keep your identity private, VPN Express is a good alternative to standard Web-based proxy services.

We used VPN Express without a hitch to access sites all over the Web, and in some countries where access to some sites is controlled or blocked, this is a solid workaround. The data rates are not cheap once you get in the habit of using VPN Express, but for casual users it may be a solid alternative. The ease with which VPN Express works, and the protection it offers, will be highly appealing for some users.

    "Not completely private"

    November 30, 2012   |   By keveen

    Version: VPN Express - Best Mobile VPN Solution For Blocked Websites 2.3.1

    Pros

    I found it quite easy to install if you follow the instructions. Worked immediately with no problems. Masked my IP effectively.

    Cons

    They do keep logs and pass data on to 3rd parties. They are honest about that so it's no good for whistle blowers or Chinese dissidents!

    Summary

    It's a good option if you don't mind some data collection for commercial purposes - but that completely negates the reason for using a VPN. I don't want any tracking at all. I want my privacy.

    "Works great for me provided 300MB for free per month"

    January 24, 2012   |   By jazkohli

    Version: VPN Express 2.0.1

    Pros

    Great to work with, speed also pretty good, i have been provided 300 MB data transfer per month as a trial, and packages start as cheaper as US$ 0.56 per month. from my side highly recommended. not all the software works here in china.

    Cons

    setup is little difficult for novice users, you need to read installation part very clearly and follow instructions, i helped many friends to get it installed as they couldn't understand hot it works, but once installed then the user interface is pretty good and easy to understand.

    Summary

    HIghly recommended.
