ExpressVPN has gone all Luniz on it recreating the popular 90’s song, “I got 5 on it”.

But rather than talking about five dollars like the famous song, ExpressVPN is now offering a massive five concurrent connections per user.

That means that current and future users can now connect up to five devices at the same time from just one ExpressVPN subscription.

ExpressVPN simultaneous device increase needed

The device limit increase has not been a case of if, but when.

As many other VPN services increased their limits, ExpressVPN stuck to their guns and continued to offer just three concurrent connections.

The latest announcement has changed all that. With a five concurrently connected device limit it means the service that was rated our #1 VPN choice for 2018 and 2019 is now not just leading on most fronts but competing on the number of simultaneous connections too.

What will this mean?

In the simplest terms, it means you can now connect and use five devices at the same time.

There has never been any limit to the number of devices you can install the ExpressVPN app on, only on the number of connections simultaneously.

The increase means you can use several devices such as a phone, tablet, laptop, desktop and Amazon Fire TV Stick all at once. All receiving protection without needing a second account.

If you’re an average user, this limit will be more than enough because most users won’t need to connect so many devices concurrently.

What if I need more devices?

In the unlikely case that you need to connect a greater number of connections at the same time, ExpressVPN offers a range of apps for routers.

In a nutshell, this means the router VPN connection acts as one device allowing you to then connect an unlimited number of devices to that router connection.

You then, in theory, still have four remaining slots that you can fill up if you need to connect while mobile.
