Our industry-first VPN router

ExpressVPN Aircove: A security-first home Wi-Fi router

ExpressVPN Aircove is the first Wi-Fi 6 router with built-in* VPN protection. Now with parental controls and other advanced protection features, Aircove helps secure all your devices—even smart home appliances and gaming consoles that can’t install VPN software. Smart TV? Voice assistant? If it’s connected, it’s protected.

*An active ExpressVPN subscription, sold separately, is required for VPN features.
The router will still perform standard functions without one.

Tech specifications

Powered by dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Aircove delivers up to 1,200 Mbps* of fast, stable Wi-Fi. When the VPN is in use, you'll still be able to stream in 4K HD on multiple screens. With up to 1,600 sq. ft. (150 sq. m)* of whole-home coverage, Aircove can support dozens of devices. So everyone gets the performance they need.

*Maximum speeds based on ideal use conditions, with the VPN disconnected. Range and performance also depend on your internet service provider, device usage, home layout, building materials, obstructions, and other factors.
