HP’s Newest Laptop Model to Come Preinstalled with ExpressVPN Software
On September 30, 2019, HP announced the release of its newest laptop model—the Spectre x360 13. This laptop model has everything a modern tech –lover is looking for in a laptop. It comes with excellent performance, big power in a small, sleek, and most portable design. The 90% screen-to-body ratio makes it the world’s smallest convertible ever.
In terms of security, the Spectre x360 13 has it all! The Webcam Kill Switch disconnects the power to your PC webcam, making it unhackable. The Mute button, together with HP’s Sure View Privacy Screen will keep prying eyes off your confidential data.

Even with all the exciting features that were mentioned during the press release, one thing stood out from the rest: the inclusion of ExpressVPN on this laptop. After realizing how its consumer customers risk their privacy and security when they connect to public Wi-Fi networks without a VPN, HP decided to team up with ExpressVPN—the number one VPN service provider to help their customers stay private and secure online.
How the Partnership will Work
As per the partnership terms, a select number of HP devices will come preinstalled with the ExpressVPN software, starting off with the Spectre x360 13. Users will enjoy a 30-day trial period within which they will be allowed access to the many ExpressVPN apps. After the free trial period, users will be able to opt-out of the subscription or purchase a longer-term plan if the VPN is a good fit for them.
The fact that the software will come already preinstalled on the laptop means users will not have to go through the trouble of installing it themselves. Also, this is a good move as it exposes those who may not have any idea what VPNs are to have the first-hand experience with all the benefits that come with using one. Those who do not plan to buy the Spectre x360 13 need not worry as HP plans to spread out this integration to more of its devices in the near future.
While it may not sound that special, 30 days of free VPN use can do quite a lot, especially for those people who use their laptops in public places such as libraries, coffee shops, and restaurants. VPNs keep your information encrypted while on an unsecured network, so any hacker or cyber-criminal waiting to steal your data will not be able to.
Who is ExpressVPN?
ExpressVPN is a well-known VPN service provider with over 3,000 servers spread across 160 locations and 90 countries. With this secure VPN, you can conceal your IP address and encrypt your network information so no one will be able to see whatever you are doing. With just a single ExpressVPN subscription, you get easy-to-use apps for all your devices including routers, Linux, Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android among others.
ExpressVPN offers users high-profile encryption and leak proofing to keep hackers and spies at bay. That’s not all though; this VPN will enable you to access any content, regardless of your geographical location. What’s more, it is fast and reliable, so you don’t need to worry about slow speeds that come with using other VPNs.

HP’s product line includes printers, PCs and other computing gadgets, networking products, scanners, software, plotters, and other imaging gadgets, and storage devices among other products.
The ExpressVPN and HP partnership draw attention to both the need for excellent security in the tech world and the solutions that certain tech corporations are willing to deploy to be able to achieve this. It’s a good thing that ExpressVPN promises many of such partnerships in the near future because then we can be sure of our privacy and security even while online.
