tortola, British Virgin IslandsAnd the September 22 2022 /PRNewswire/ – A leader in protecting consumer privacy and security ExpressVPN Today it announced its first entry into hardware products with the launch of ExpressVPN Aircove.

Aircove is the first and only Wi-Fi 6 router that comes with a VPN built in by default and a user interface designed for those looking to protect their families with a VPN. With Aircove, users can easily enjoy comprehensive home security, with direct VPN protection.

“The average American home now has 25 devices connected to a home Wi-Fi network.[1] From laptops to smart TVs, things pile up quickly and it becomes hard to keep track of knowing that every device is protected. That’s why we built Aircove, to provide users with a simple, flexible, VPN-protected internet connection across every room, on every device, for every family member,” Harold LeeExpressVPN, Vice President of ExpressVPN.

According to a recent study, 98% of IoT device traffic is unencrypted, which could allow attackers to easily extract personal and confidential data.[2] With easy setup, Aircove allows users to protect and encrypt every device in their home in a matter of minutes. This includes smart TVs, voice assistants, and other IoT devices that are not usually compatible with VPN software.

Aircove is designed with user privacy and security as a top priority. For example, users can share their home Wi-Fi network with their visitors simply by scanning a QR code – no password sharing is required. Aircove also has an automatic update feature so users always have the latest features and security improvements to keep their network safe and secure.

ExpressVPN also invited cybersecurity firm Cure53 to conduct a penetration test and review the source code for Aircove prior to launch. The test was conducted in June and July 2022.

Aircove uses Wi-Fi 6 for the fastest and most reliable wireless connection, which allows for speeds of up to 1200Mbps (600Mbps for 2.4GHz and 1200Mbps for 5GHz).
