‘The best way to protect all of your home’s gadgets.’
Instantly secure all your devices
Exclusively developed by ExpressVPN, Aircove is the industry’s first and only Wi-Fi router with built-in* VPN protection. Aircove brings full VPN benefits to 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.

Sort your devices into as many as five groups, each with its own VPN location. For each group, you can also choose:
Smart Location, which selects the best location for you based on network conditions
No VPN, for when you want a device connected to the internet but not using VPN
No internet, for when you want to block individual devices from accessing the internet
Sort your devices into up to five groups, each with its own VPN location.
Tap or drag and drop to switch your device location in seconds.
Your connections remain stable as you change from one location to another.
What is Aircove?
Aircove is the first and only wireless internet router on the market that is specially built to connect to ExpressVPN directly. This allows the router to provide VPN functionality to every device that connects to it.
How is Aircove different from other routers?
While any router can provide internet access, Aircove goes one better: It instantly brings all the benefits of ExpressVPN to everything on your network. If it’s connected, it’s protected. You don’t need to install ExpressVPN on any other device, if you don’t want to.
Aircove has also been built with security top of mind. An audit conducted by cybersecurity firm Cure53 confirmed that the router has a robust level of security.
Is Aircove available outside of the U.S.?
Yes, Aircove is available internationally on FlashRouters. If you’re new to ExpressVPN, you’ll enjoy a free 1-month trial with your purchase.
Do I need an ExpressVPN subscription if I have Aircove?
Yes. Although Aircove comes with ExpressVPN preinstalled, you need to activate it with an ongoing subscription if you want to enjoy VPN benefits. But even if you never subscribe to ExpressVPN, Aircove will still perform standard Wi-Fi and network functions, just like any other router.
Do I need an internet service provider (ISP) with Aircove?
Yes, you will need an ISP to connect to the internet. Your ISP gives your home access to the internet, while Aircove distributes the internet access to all your connected devices.
Do I need a Netflix/HBO/Prime Video/other streaming service account if I have Aircove?
If you want to access streaming content, yes. Aircove does not come with any streaming accounts, so if you don’t already have a subscription to Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Prime Video, or any other paid streaming service, you’ll need to sign up separately.
Is Aircove a Wi-Fi mesh system?
No, Aircove is a single router where all wireless traffic and requests pass through one access point. If you have an existing mesh system, Aircove can be connected to one of the nodes with the highest concentration of devices that you want to protect with a VPN.
What internet speeds will I get with Aircove?
In our testing, Aircove’s high-performance quad-core CPU enables download speeds of up to 910 Mbps over Ethernet and 615 Mbps over Wi-Fi with VPN disconnected.
When the VPN is in use, Aircove offers speeds of up to 180 Mbps for multiple devices simultaneously. (For reference, 4K streaming typically requires download speeds of 25Mbps, while HD requires 5Mbps.)
Maximums are based on ideal use conditions. Actual range and performance depend on your internet service provider, home size, layout, device usage, building materials, and obstructions.
How many VPN server locations can you use with Aircove?
ExpressVPN has VPN servers in 94 countries, including the UK, U.S., Canada, Australia, and many more. See the full list of VPN server locations.
How do I know Aircove is secure?
Security is at the forefront of what we do at ExpressVPN. Not only do we aim to design our apps and systems to offer a high level of privacy and security, but we also routinely engage independent auditors to validate our security claims. It’s one of the best ways for our users to know if they can trust our services to protect them. See the full list of audits and read the full reports.
