Try disabling your firewall, antivirus, or anti-spyware program

Your VPN connection might be blocked by a firewall, antivirus, or anti-spyware program.

To test this, disable these programs and see if you can connect to an ExpressVPN server location. If you are able to connect, do one of the following:

  • If you know how to configure the program that’s blocking the connection, configure it to allow ExpressVPN. Depending on the program, you may need to change the security level from High to Medium, grant an exception to ExpressVPN or to UDP ports 1194-1204, or set it to Trust ExpressVPN. Consult the instructions for your own firewall, antivirus, or anti-spyware program for details.
  • If you have the option to reinstall the program that’s blocking your VPN connection, installing it after ExpressVPN is already installed should get it to allow ExpressVPN to connect. Do the following:
    1. Uninstall ExpressVPN
    2. Uninstall the program that’s blocking the VPN connection
    3. Install ExpressVPN
    4. Install the program that’s blocking the VPN connection

Try changing the protocol

VPN protocols are the methods by which your device connects to a VPN server.

By default, ExpressVPN uses the UDP protocol, which is often blocked in some countries, especially in the Middle East. For the best experience, ExpressVPN recommends using the Automatic protocol option.

If you need to change protocols, please choose the protocols in the following order:

  1. OpenVPN TCP
  2. L2TP
  3. PPTP

Note: PPTP and L2TP/IPsec provide weak security benefits and should only be used for anonymization or for changing locations.

Note: ExpressVPN does not recommend using L2TP or PPTP unless absolutely necessary. These protocols offer only minimal security.

How to change the protocol for the…

  • ExpressVPN Windows App
  • ExpressVPN Mac App
  • ExpressVPN Android App
  • ExpressVPN iOS App
  • ExpressVPN Linux App
  • ExpressVPN Windows App 3.x
