HP and ExpressVPN Teaming Up in New Hardware Launch

by Harsh Vardhan Posted on

When you think about privacy violations, the most obvious issue that comes to your mind is hacking and other cybercrimes. There are sophisticated hackers out there who will stop at nothing to attempt to steal your sensitive personal information or break into your private accounts. Other than hacking, law enforcement can also spy on your personal information. The Cambridge Analytica, for instance, gained access to sensitive private information of over 50 million Facebook users to sway the 2016 presidential election. That’s why it is prudent to always connect to the internet through secure virtual private networks (VPNs).

ExpressVPN/HP Partnership

ExpressVPN is working with HP to craft a solution that will help users stay private and secure online. So far, VPNs have proved indispensable as far as digital safety is concerned, and many HP customers will be protected from Day 1. The new HP Spectre x360 13 will now come with ExpressVPN protection preinstalled.

To begin with, HP customers who purchase the Spectre x360 13 will receive an exclusive free 30-day VPN trial, allowing access to all ExpressVPN apps.

Many HP customers connect to a variety of unsecured public Wi-Fi networks daily, often without knowing the security and privacy risks they’re exposed to. By adding ExpressVPN to the set of HP’s security offerings for its consumer customers, security and privacy will be significantly enhanced.

If you’re not thrilled with the Spectre x360 13, HP intends to roll out other models into the market in the coming months. Once the ExpressVPN trial period elapses, users will have the option to acquire longer-term subscriptions. ExpressVPN offers a range of pricing plans, including a monthly subscription plan at $12.95 and a 12-month plan at $6.67 per month, including extra three months for free. 

ExpressVPN’s TrustedServer Technology

Most VPN providers rely on hard drives to run their servers, which retain all user data until they are manually deleted or written over. This poses the risk of servers unintentionally retaining your delicate information. If a third party was to hack the server, all the sensitive user data could land in the wrong hands. 

ExpressVPN’s TrustedServer technology mitigates this security concern by ensuring that absolutely nothing remains on the server every time it is reset. Instead of writing data on a hard drive, the ExpressVPN server runs entirely in RAM. RAM needs electricity to preserve data, so all the information on the server is cleared every time it is rebooted to prevent intruders from accessing the data even if they manage to hack the server. 

HP Spectre x360 13 Features

The new HP Spectre x360 13 comes with uncompromising power in a highly-mobile design. Perhaps the biggest promise of this model is its 22.5 hours of solid battery life — enough to take you through the day. Inside the machine, there’s a maximum of 512GB of SSD storage, 16GB RAM, and additional LTE support. 

The new Spectre x360 13 also comes with a USB-C port angled on the edge to streamline cable management. Although the design has not changed much from its predecessor, the new HP Spectre x360 13 has its bezels slightly shrunken in all directions. Users can choose between an FHD panel and 4K display options, depending on whether or not you fancy the 22.5 hours battery life. The longer battery life is accompanied by a 1080p display while its shorter battery life model comes with a 4K screen. The device also comes with a built-in webcam kill switch to electrically turn off the webcam when not in use to enhance privacy. 

Conclusion

ExpressVPN and HP have spent several months to craft a partnership that will see many users enjoying anonymity and security when browsing the internet. The service is currently available on HP’s new laptop model – Spectre x360 13. In the coming months, ExpressVPN plans to strike more partnerships with other top PC manufacturers other than HP
