The 5 best VPN trials of 2023

VPN trials are a great way to test a VPN’s speed and reliability before you commit. Here are ZDNET’s picks for the best VPN trials you should take advantage of in 2023.

Features: Content streaming | 94 countries | Kill switch | Over 3000 servers | No-logs policy | Password manager

ExpressVPN is a widely-used and popular VPN. While expensive, the service is best suited for individuals who want to adopt a reliable VPN that can be used both at home and abroad. Advanced features include content streaming and torrenting availability, split tunneling, and a threat manager designed to stop tracking. 

You can connect up to five devices simultaneously. A router app is also available if you want to install the VPN directly and open up access to every device in your household. 

ExpressVPN has adopted the same stance as many other VPN providers and does not offer a standalone trial. Instead, you can sign up for a short-term service — either one month, six months, or a year — and then cancel within 30 days to take advantage of a money-back guarantee. However, if you’re willing to pass on your details, you receive 30 days of use with no restrictions in place when it comes to functionality, speed, and server connections. 

There is also 24/7 chat support if you have queries or trouble setting up the VPN.
