ExpressVPN has launched Aircove Go, a portable version of its Aircove VPN router that was first released last year. Aircove Go is designed to extend your home network’s security to any location, protecting your online activities everywhere, including on public Wi-Fi.

“Many of us rely on public Wi-Fi to get work done, update social media, and stay in touch with loved ones. While useful, the nature of public Wi-Fi networks is such that they’re open to anybody to use. As a result, they’re typically less secure and private than your home network,” David Gilbert, staff product manager of Aircove, said.

“We built Aircove Go to solve for that; so that you can take your home network on the road, and safeguard your online activities no matter where you are, even on public Wi-Fi. Think of Aircove Go as your digital security companion: You can use it in a home office, entertainment room, hotel, co-working space, and more,” he said.

The ExpressVPN team, which stands behind one of the best VPNs on the market, developed Aircove Go with the same Wi-Fi 6 technology its Aircrove VPn router uses, which allows for fast and reliable wireless connectivity — even in crowded networks.

It provides the same advanced security features as its predecessor, Aircove, too. This includes tools for blocking malicious ads, unsafe websites, and web trackers; customizable parental controls; and the ability to organize devices into groups based on specific needs and locations.

Unlike the Aircrove VPN router, the portable Aircrove Go comes with a Wi-Fi link feature that allows for cable-free connections to local Wi-Fi networks. You can also charge it with a USB-C adapter.

ExpressVPN promises a 1-time setup with its portable router, meaning you just need to turn it on at any location and instantly connect all your devices without individual sign-ins.  Aircove Go secures an unlimited number of devices, including devices that can’t run VPN software, within an area up to 750 square feet.
