Why you should use a VPN with gaming consoles

Four falling dots.

Powerful protection

Avoid DDoS attacks by masking your IP. ExpressVPN also features 256-bit AES, leak protection, a kill switch, and split tunneling.


Boost connectivity

Enjoy unlimited, premium bandwidth. Minimize ping and lag with VPN servers in 105 countries.

Bypass throttling

Limit your ISP from slowing your connection. With a VPN, data can’t be inspected, so your bandwidth won’t be throttled.

Video game buttons.

Access more online

Get the latest DLC and games from early launch date countries. Play games even if they’re censored where you are.*

Access content you want on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and other devices.

Whether you prefer to play on a PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC, tablet, or phone, ExpressVPN has you covered.

Why use ExpressVPN for your game console?

Game better with a VPN: A television with a progress bar and play button.

ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer service offers an easy way to hide your console’s location and works seamlessly on a range of popular devices (including smart TVs), letting you stream what you want with no buffering. Setup is a breeze, with no other equipment required. But it doesn’t provide the full privacy protection of a VPN.

Find the MediaStreamer solution for your specific device

Set up VPN for IOT devices.

To equip your console with all the privacy power of ExpressVPN, you’ll want to connect it to a VPN-enabled router. With a minimal amount of extra setup, you can encrypt all your traffic, change your IP address, defeat ISP throttling, and more. And best of all, you can protect every phone, tablet, computer, or smart TV on your network.

Can I use a free VPN for
game consoles?

Free proxy services are not recommended for gaming online as they do not offer the same privacy and security benefits of a paid VPN. Many do not work as advertised, some may even sell your data, and most will leave your networks vulnerable to attack.

After buying ExpressVPN, everything worked great. I was able to communicate with my friends in games with little to no gain in latency, and it has proven to be the best VPN service for me to this day. I recommend it.
