AirCove Go: A Portable Router With A Built-In VPN

The ExpressVPN Aircove Go is a new portable Wi-Fi 6 travel router. It is designed for travelers who need a reliable and secure connection when using public Wi-Fi networks. The Aircove Go is compact, about the size of a palm, and features a built-in VPN, dual-band coverage (2.4 GHz/5 GHz), and Wi-Fi 6 capabilities. It also includes LAN and WAN Ethernet ports, although it does not require an ethernet connection to function, as it can connect via Wi-Fi, even to networks with a captive portal.

The device is designed for easy setup, which ExpressVPN claims should take less than 5 minutes using the accompanying app. Once a device is connected to the Aircove Go, it will be remembered for future connections, eliminating the need for repeated setup processes. The Aircove Go is available for purchase for $170, and it requires an ExpressVPN subscription, which costs $12.95 per month, with discounts available for longer term commitments. The router is available on Amazon for $170 and comes with a 1-year warranty. New users also get a 30-day free trial of ExpressVPN.

ExpressVPN’s Aircove Go is built upon the same technology as its predecessor, the Aircove, and offers advanced security features such as blocking tools for malicious ads, dangerous sites, and web trackers, customizable parental controls, and device groups to organize devices according to specific needs and locations. It is designed to be user-friendly with a one-time setup and an auto-update feature, and it can be powered via a USB-C adapter. The Aircove Go can protect unlimited devices across a space of up to 750 square feet, making it suitable for use in small apartments as well.
