There has been a lingering concern about whether to use a VPN or not amongst the majority of potential users who are thinking of opting for VPN-shielded internet browsing or accessing premium streaming content. But many myths and discussions prevail around us regarding whether investing in such a VPN is completely safe or not? Or can it be hacked by some third-party entity? So, here we are going to take a closer look at these concerns and their validity especially from the viewpoint of ExpressVPN.ExpressVPN’s immense popularity is majorly contributed by its several superior functioning features, but also by its top-quality security protocols and iron-tight military-grade encryption with AES 256-bit decorum which is further practically confirmed by the absence of such noticeable instances of major hacking on its servers to date. But still, let us discuss the real-life examples of hacking on a VPN service, and whether ExpressVPN might come under that risk anyhow.
There are also very few examples of other VPN provider server hacks worldwide, which had mainly been mediated by accessing and exploiting the data centers’ remote management software and getting hold of few VPN keys by the hackers. This might come as a panic-creating fact but when you go for an in-depth analysis of these situations, you might find out that it is not as concerning as it seems. In most of these cases, one of the servers for a particular VPN provider got compromised and thus the hackers were certainly not able to access all the data flow through that compromised server for a long period as the providers had shut down the facility at once it got detected. With the super active internal management team and customer support, ExpressVPN stays in an ever-alert mode to provide its subscribers with the best quality of security service. At worst the stolen keys could be used to impersonate the dedicated VPN website or their VPN servers using the service unauthorisedly but these keys nowhere help in decrypting traffic thus these are examples of poor third-party management by those VPN providers, which is actively monitored in case of ExpressVPN service to avoid such nuisance. Though these factors cannot be regarded as some serious hacking phenomenon leading to any grave security issue for the user, still ExpressVPN has been proven to even surpass all these nukes and bits too creating an expert VPN service that is nearly un-hackable and untraceable as well.
