Our industry-first VPN 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.
People love ExpressVPN Aircove
"Now I don't have to worry about giving up my own personal security for my family's."
- Stephan, an Aircove user
"Plug and play is really the right word."
- Devon, an Aircove user
"With the changes in the security environment and moving on from L2TP, it made sense to upgrade the router and just buy the Aircove."
- Andrew, an Aircove user
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.
Get protected in minutes
With Aircove, anyone can breeze through setup—not just the resident tech expert. Activation takes five minutes. Then, protect any device instantly just by connecting it to Aircove’s Wi-Fi. There’s no need to install apps on any devices.
One router, up to five VPN locations
Connect to as many as five VPN locations at the same time. Create one group for family or friends, move all the TVs into a UK group, or set all the game consoles to Japan. You can even designate a group to exclude from the VPN altogether.
Create up to five groups to organize your devices. For each group, set a VPN location or 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
Which advanced protection settings to apply, if any
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.
Change a device group’s VPN location without interrupting others.
Block online threats easily
Besides the benefits of a world-class VPN, Aircove provides advanced protection features, including:
Threat Manager, for protection against harmful websites and third-party trackers
Ad blocking, which hides banner ads when you browse the web
Parental controls, for blocking adult sites and setting internet access hours
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.
Aircove also comes with built-in advanced protection features: Threat Manager, an ad blocker, and parental controls. These are designed to work seamlessly with the VPN, providing whole-home protection with one easy-to-use router.
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 our VPN router, Aircove, has a robust level of security.
Where can I purchase Aircove?
You can purchase Aircove through Amazon.com in the following countries:
United States of America
Are there different Aircove models?
On Amazon.com, you may find two Aircove product listings (one for the U.S. and another for international customers) due to region-specific regulations. They are functionally the same.
There are also refurbished Aircove units available on FlashRouters or Amazon.com. These units are in as-new condition and have been cleaned, tested, and reset to default settings before they are repackaged.
If refurbished units are available on Amazon.com, you'll see the option to purchase a "renewed" Aircove unit. Check the seller name that appears below the “Buy Now” button on the product page on Amazon.com to determine the condition of the Aircove unit:
If you see "Sold by: Express Technologies Ltd,” the Aircove unit is brand new.
If you see “Sold by: FlashRouters,” the Aircove unit is refurbished.
Do I need an ExpressVPN subscription if I have Aircove?
Although Aircove comes with ExpressVPN preinstalled, you need to activate it with an ongoing subscription if you want to enjoy VPN benefits.
Without an active ExpressVPN subscription, Aircove will still perform standard Wi-Fi and network functions, just like any other router, and its advanced protection features will operate as normal.
Do I need a separate subscription to use Threat Manager, the ad blocker, or parental controls?
No, these features are included with your Aircove.
Can I use Aircove’s Threat Manager, ad blocker, and parental controls without the VPN?
Yes, these features can be used with or without the VPN.
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 25 Mbps, while HD requires 5 Mbps.)
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.
