How to Download, Install and Use ExpressVPN on NOOK eReaders

We’re sure that many of you enjoy the benefits of using an e-reader, especially those made by Barnes & Noble. With that said, it’s time to show you how to unleash the true power of your NOOK e-reader. And yes – we’ll talk about how to set up and use ExpressVPN on your NOOK. 


As per ExpressVPN’s support documentation, this VPN is compatible with NOOK HD e-readers. These run on a modified version of Android with access to the Play Store, which makes installing ExpressVPN on a NOOK e-reader fast and straightforward.


ExpressVPN is in the process of bringing an all-new interface to all of its supported devices, and NOOK e-readers should be among those soon. So, you might see a bit different interface than what’s displayed below. However, the following instructions will still be valid. 

1. Let’s begin by letting you subscribe to ExpressVPN.

2. Once you get to ExpressVPN’s website, select any of the ‘Get ExpressVPN‘ buttons. 

3. Then, pick a subscription plan (if you want to save, pick a long-term one). 

4. Once you enter your email, proceed to pay for the chosen subscription plan. 

5. Expect to receive a confirmation email once you finalize the sign-up procedure.

6. Then, return to ExpressVPN’s website (go back to its home page). 

7. Click on ‘My Account‘ using the website’s main menu (top-right corner). 

Logging to ExpressVPN Website on Smartphone

8. Provide your ExpressVPN username and password, and then click on ‘Sign In.’

9. You’ll also need to provide a verification code, so copy it from your email inbox. 

10. If you’re on your NOOK e-reader, ExpressVPN should recognize your operating system. 

11. That means you should see a page titled ‘ExpressVPN for Android.’

14. Now, click on ‘Get it On Google Play,’ and the Play Store app should open. 

15. Proceed to download the app by tapping on ‘Install.’

16. Once ExpressVPN downloads and installs, tap on ‘Open‘ to launch the app. 

17. If you don’t have access to the Play Store on your NOOK, you’ll need a workaround.

18. In that case, select ‘Download APK‘ to download ExpressVPN manually to your NOOK.

19. Then, launch the APK file, tap on ‘Install‘ and finalize installing the VPN app.
