HP and ExpressVPN Partner Up in New Hardware Launch to Protect User's Security and Privacy

As cyber threats continue to invade every industry, awareness is the first step in protecting yourself. Data breaches and privacy violations happen every day, and even Governments track their citizens over the internet. The Cambridge Analytica, for instance, gained access to sensitive private information of over 50 million Facebook users to sway the 2016 presidential election. Since private information is often not used in ethical ways, it is critical to safeguard your online footprints by installing a virtual private network (VPN)

HP and ExpressVPN Partnership

As the need for VPNs continue to rise, ExpressVPN has partnered with HP (a reputable IT company) to help computer users stay secure and private online. To begin with, HPs Spectre x360 13 laptop will enjoy the integrated ExpressVPN experience. Customers who buy the machine are guaranteed a 30-day ExpressVPN free trial, allowing them to access all ExpressVPN apps for a myriad of gadgets, including Android, Amazon Fire TV Stick, iOS, and macOS. If you are not impressed with this particular model of laptop, do not fret as the number of innovative models is bound to expand in the next couple of months. Once the free trial ends, users will have the option to make monthly or annual subscriptions. ExpressVPN provides a broad range of pricing plans, including monthly subscriptions at $12.95 and annual plans for $6.67 per month, with extra three months for free

How the Pre-installed VPN Works

The ExpressVPN application will be strategically pinned to the laptop's task-bars and other convenient locations, next to Windows-specific icons such as Explorer and Microsoft Edge. This approach grants the app total visibility. Moreover, HP computer users who will attempt to connect to unsecured Wi-Fi networks will be prompted to secure their connection using ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN TrustedServer

As the IT industry's most advanced VPN server technology, ExpressVPN's TrustedServer effectively wipes out all data with every server reboot. The VPN runs on RAM only and your data is never written on hard drives. Every time the server is restarted, the entire software stack is reinstalled afresh. The VPN provider can tell exactly what is running on each Server, with no inconsistencies. It is a whole new standard of security that is independently audited to ensure essential privacy protections
