How to Download, Install & Use ExpressVPN on Chromebook

You’ll be happy to know that ExpressVPN offers a native Chrome OS app, making its installation quite simple. Here’s all you need to know on how to set up and use ExpressVPN on your Chromebook. 

Note

For the following procedure, you need a Chromebook with the Play Store pre-installed (check out the full list of supported devices). If you don’t have access to Google’s Play Store, you will need to set up ExpressVPN on Chrome OS manually.

Important

If you run Chrome OS v64 or older, keep in mind that ExpressVPN will protect the apps downloaded from the Play Store ONLY. Check your Chrome OS version by going to Settings > About Chrome OS. We highly recommend updating Chrome OS

1. Begin this procedure by visiting ExpressVPN’s sign-up page.

2. Click on any of the prominent ‘Get ExpressVPN‘ buttons to get started. 

3. Now, pick a subscription plan and fill out your personal/payment information.

4. When you pay for the subscription, expect to receive a confirmation email

5. Once you know your subscription is active, go ahead and open the Play Store.
