ExpressVPN is partnering with TCL to improve the security of every smart TV TCL produces.

While SmartTVs are convenient for watching all your favorite shows, they’re just as easy to hack as any other device connected to the internet. Plus, without a VPN, your data is left unencrypted and exposed. This means hackers can spy on and harvest your important data with ease.

Addressing the concern, TCL is including ExpressVPN as a pre-installed app on every new SmartTV they produce.

ExpressVPN encrypts your data with military-grade encryption that has yet to be cracked by anyone, guaranteeing your privacy in the event of a breach or hack. Unlike most VPNs, it does this without a noticeable drop in connection speed. In terms of security and speed, it’s Safety Detectives top-rated VPN.

Besides enhancing your TV’s security, it also prevents your ISP from throttling your internet connection during stressful hours.

Plus, it’s accessible to anyone.

“With ExpressVPN’s global network of servers across 105 countries, you can set your virtual location anywhere you need it,” ExpressVPN said in a recent blog post.

While ExpressVPN isn’t free for TCL TV owners, it comes with a 30-day free trial that customers can use to test it out. This subscription isn’t solely for your SmartTV, instead it’s a full subscription to ExpressVPN. You can install it on multiple devices, like your family phones, computers, or multiple SmartTVs at once. Once installed, up to eight devices can be connected at once.

The other benefit of it being a full ExpressVPN subscription is that customers also get access to all of ExpressVPNs other benefits, like an excellent ad and tracker blocker and access to ExpressVPN’s in-house password manager, Keys.

While it still requires a subscription, having ExpressVPN built into TCL smart TVs gives every user access to a top VPN that greatly improves their security.
