How to install a VPN on Oculus Quest 2
Installing ExpressVPN with SideQuest
ExpressVPN can be installed directly onto Oculus Quest 2 via the SideQuest app, which lets you download content onto your Quest. Simply download and install SideQuest on your computer, then install the ExpressVPN Android app or APK on your Oculus Quest 2.
Connect to a VPN router
Alternatively, you can connect your Oculus Quest 2 VR headset to a VPN-enabled router to achieve full VPN protection following a quick and easy installation process. If you’re based in the U.S., you can also get the ExpressVPN Aircove router with built-in^ VPN protection.
*An active ExpressVPN subscription, sold separately, is required for VPN features.
The router will still perform standard functions without one.

FAQ: Oculus Quest 2 VPN
Does Oculus Quest 2 work with a VPN?
Yes! ExpressVPN is optimized to work seamlessly with Oculus Quest 2 and is easy to install. If you’re having trouble setting up or using ExpressVPN, simply get in touch with our Support Team anytime.
What’s the difference between the Oculus Quest 2 and Meta Quest 2?
They are the same device. Originally released in late 2020 as the Oculus Quest 2, the headset was rebranded as Meta Quest 2 a year later.
Can I use ExpressVPN on other devices at the same time?
Yes! ExpressVPN is available on a wide array of devices including computers, smartphones, smart TVs and streaming media players, and game consoles. You can install ExpressVPN on as many devices as you wish, and connect up to eight devices simultaneously with a single subscription. Or install ExpressVPN on your Wi-Fi router to connect even more.
Will a VPN slow my connection when gaming on Oculus Quest 2?
VPN services add a layer of encryption to an online connection that can potentially slow down internet speeds. ExpressVPN, however, has a blazing-fast, ever-optimized network, so you probably won’t notice much of a difference!
If your ISP has been known to throttle your online gaming, use of a VPN to play games on your Oculus Quest VR headset could actually speed up your connection.
How does a VPN reduce ping?
You can lower latency and overall lag by shortening connection routes between yourself and gaming servers. Packets of data are then able to move between your computer and game servers faster, thereby reducing any noticeable delays between your actions and what happens in a game—giving you an advantage. Connecting to a VPN server closest to the game’s server will usually provide the smoothest experience.
How does a VPN protect against DDoS attacks?
Using ExpressVPN while gaming online helps you by masking your true IP address. This can help to circumvent the unfair advantage created during a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack, which aims to create lag and disruptions to interfere with your online gaming experience.
What else can I do with ExpressVPN?
No matter what platform you choose to play online games, ExpressVPN has you covered. If you play on a console such as PlayStation, Xbox, or Switch, you can enjoy the privacy and security benefits of ExpressVPN by using our app on your router.
ExpressVPN also works with streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and BBC iPlayer. In countries with heavy censorship, a VPN can help you unblock popular sites like YouTube and Google. It’s also the fastest, easiest way to browse the internet privately and securely—for example, with a VPN Chrome extension.
