How to Download, Install and Use ExpressVPN on a Sabai Router

Sabai routers are made for more advanced users, willing to customize everything about their Web connection. With that said, we will show you how to set up and use ExpressVPN on your Sabai router, letting you encrypt and protect your data. Here’s our step-by-step guide. 

Note

ExpressVPN should work with any Sabai router, as long as it supports OpenVPN connections. Even though ExpressVPN doesn’t offer custom firmware for Sabai routers, you can still get the same result by configuring an OpenVPN connection manually - as explained below.

1. Start this process by getting your ExpressVPN subscription

2. You’ll land on ExpressVPN’s site, where you need to click on 'Get ExpressVPN.'

3. First, pick a subscription (long-term ones come with the biggest savings). 

4. Once you enter your email address, proceed to pay for your new subscription. 

5. Expect to receive a confirmation email from ExpressVPN’s team once done. 

6. This is when you can return to ExpressVPN’s site (start from its home page). 

7. Select 'My Account,' visible in the top-right corner (on the main menu).
