    • Prevents content identified as advertising from displaying during browsing as well as an adult-site blocker to prevent access or unwanted content
    • These new features can be used alongside Threat Manager, a tracker and malware blocker, that’s already available on all of ExpressVPN’s desktop, mobile, and router apps. Users can easily take control of their internet experience by enabling these advanced protection features via toggles in the ExpressVPN apps. 
    • The new ad blocker and adult-site blocker are available from today, October 16, on ExpressVPN’s apps for Android, iOS, and Windows. They will be available on Linux and Mac by the end of this year.
  • Auto-update
    • There is now an auto-update feature on its desktop apps, so that its users always have the latest features and security enhancements
  • Expansion
    • Users can now choose from servers in 105 countries around the world, and have access to an even more diverse range of IP addresses. The new server locations include Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ghana, Guam, Honduras, Jamaica, Lebanon, Morocco, Puerto Rico, and Trinidad aind Tobago.
  • Simultaneous connection
    • Users can now connect up to eight devices simultaneously with a single subscription, a significant upgrade from the five-device limit previously offered.
    • Users who wish to connect unlimited devices—including smart home devices that aren’t usually compatible with VPN software—can do so via ExpressVPN’s award-winning Aircove router.
