What is a Chrome extension VPN?

A VPN extension for Google Chrome is software that integrates with your browser and enables additional features on it, like data encryption. Because Google Chrome does not come with its own VPN, if you want to use a VPN on your Chrome browser, you could download a VPN extension.

ExpressVPN’s extension for Chrome acts as a remote control for the ExpressVPN app on your device. It lets you conveniently turn your VPN on or off, select a server location, and change your app settings within the browser. Because the extension controls the full-featured app, it’s not just your browser traffic that it secures with strong encryption but all the internet activity being transmitted to and from your device.

Superior security with a Chrome extension VPN

Go online safely and securely with strong VPN encryption. Spoof your location and control the ExpressVPN app from your Google Chrome browser.

Easy to use

You’re moments away from increased online privacy and the freedom to access any blocked website. Turn on VPN protection straight from your Google Chrome, Brave, or Vivaldi browser window. ExpressVPN apps make it easy for anyone to connect to our network.

Unblock apps and sites

Censorship and other region-based restrictions can keep you from accessing websites and videos in your browser. ExpressVPN helps you break through these blocks, including those found in school or office Wi-Fi networks, by giving you a different IP address and placing you virtually in a different country.

Safeguard your IP

Protect your privacy by preventing websites from discovering your true IP address and location. Some apps are prone to WebRTC leaks, which could reveal your real IP even when using a VPN. The ExpressVPN Chrome VPN extension prevents this by blocking WebRTC. Easily keep your location private, protect your identity, and enjoy a safe and secure online experience.

Super fast speeds

ExpressVPN’s Google Chrome browser extension has been optimized for speed so you can enjoy the fast download rates you expect. Stream seamlessly and browse online without interruption when you download our Chrome extension VPN.

Protect your location

Keep your whereabouts to yourself and surf with peace of mind using the ExpressVPN Chrome extension. When you connect to any of ExpressVPN’s server locations, you get a different IP address and can make yourself appear to be in a different country. Avoid price discrimination based on location, and help keep your identity private.

Strict no-logs policy

ExpressVPN does not and will never log your browsing history, traffic destination or metadata, DNS queries, or the IP address you are assigned when you connect. We have carefully engineered our apps and VPN servers to categorically eliminate sensitive information. Plus, we regularly invite independent auditors and testers to review the claims in our privacy policy.

Secure and verified: Audits of the ExpressVPN Chrome extension

Our browser extension has undergone rigorous security audits by the accredited cybersecurity company, Cure53:

Cure53’s founder, CEO, and security researcher, Mario Heiderich, highlighted our solid security base, saying, “All in all, following the completion of this audit, the testing team can only conclude that the ExpressVPN team has already established a strong security foundation for the browser extension.”

Beyond audits, we also proactively enhance our defenses through our bug bounty program. By inviting security researchers worldwide to identify vulnerabilities within our systems—including our browser extensions—we're committed to continuous security improvement.

Should I use a free VPN Chrome extension?

It’s highly recommended that you steer clear of free VPN extensions. While they may promise privacy protection without a price tag, these services often offer inadequate security, leaving your data exposed to cyber threats. They may slow your browsing, offer only a limited number of servers, and only cover your browser traffic rather than your whole device.

Most concerningly is how free VPNs manage to operate without charging users. Many rely on recording and selling your data, including browsing activity and personal details, to third parties. This completely goes against the primary purpose of a VPN—to protect your privacy and secure your online activities.

In contrast, premium VPN services like ExpressVPN prioritize user privacy with strong encryption, a strict no-logs policy, and a wide network of fast servers, ensuring your online activities remain private and secure.

    Love this app. I travel extensively around the world and this app helps me keep in touch.
    Whatever site I go to, they have no clue where I am located or who I am, and I like it that way.
