Connect to CyberGhost VPN in 3 easy steps, and get on with the show!
To unlock all the benefits of a Chromecast VPN, like being able to access your favorite streaming content from anywhere, you need to install CyberGhost VPN on your router.
If the laptop or smartphone you’re using to control your Chromecast is connected to a VPN (as it should be to unlock your content), and your Chromecast isn’t (through your router), they’ll be on two different networks and won’t be able to communicate.
It’s a little fiddly to configure your router but you’ll be glad you did. Now all your internet-connected devices, not just your Chromecast, will enjoy full VPN protection and an unrestricted internet.
If you don’t have a VPN-compatible router, you still have options. You could buy a pre-flashed VPN router, use a virtual router from your Mac or PC, or try mirroring a smartphone installed with CyberGhost VPN.
Chromecast is an easy way to turn your TV into a Smart TV so you can watch video content from Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and other services on your TV screen. The problem? You can only access content available in your region. With a VPN, you can hide your IP address so these services can no longer determine your real location. Your Chromecast can then access streaming services from all over the world.
Your VPN should make streaming easier, not harder!
CyberGhost VPN has 11665+ high-speed servers in 100 countries. We’re one of the few VPNs with servers optimized for full HD streaming. Watch Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hulu, HBO MAX, YouTube, BBC iPlayer, and much more, in quality fit for the big screen.

Chromecast with Google TV is a very handy gadget made by Google that lets non-Smart TV owners stream Netflix, YouTube, and any other content they wish.
However, streaming apps come with geo-restrictions – nothing new here. So, if you’re not living in the US, you won’t be able to access Netflix’s US content library. That’s the main benefit of using a Chromecast VPN.
If you know the country where the content you want to access is available, a VPN gives you the option to virtually teleport there by replacing your real IP address with one that matches the location where you want to appear from.
Unlike most VPNs, we give you unlimited bandwidth so you can enjoy the world’s best series and blockbuster movies, back-to-back, with no issues. Buffering, what’s that?
Sometimes, your ISP may try to limit your usage if you’ve been streaming all day. Avoid all throttling with CyberGhost VPN. Our VPN app encrypts your data, so nobody–not even your ISP–can tell what you’re doing online.
Dodge your ISP and anyone else trying to limit your entertainment. Join 30+ million users enjoying the type of streams that dreams are made of.

What you use your dongle for is your business. Whatever tickles your fancy, it’s your little secret.
Our strict No Logs policy means we never collect, store, or share any of your information.
We mask your IP address and encrypt all your data, guaranteeing your complete anonymity.
That means no one can profile you based on your IP address, watching habits, search queries or anything else that reveals your identity or interests. Watch whatever you like through Chromecast, we’ll never tell.
Your Chromecast brings the stars of entertainment to your home TV screen–but it also opens a backdoor for cybercriminals and snoopers waiting to snatch up your sensitive data. Draw up the moat bridge with CyberGhost VPN!
CyberGhost VPN shields your digital identity behind the most advanced security protocols. We hide all your data behind 256-bit AES military-grade encryption. This means no one can spy on your online activity. You fortify your digital castle and can kiss ISP, advertiser, or search-engine snooping goodbye!
Option 1 – Configure your VPN router
Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to installing CyberGhost VPN on your router. Be sure your router is VPN-compatible (refer to the router manual or do a quick Google search.) before you get started.
Option 2 – Get a pre-flashed VPN router
If your router doesn’t support a VPN connection, you can opt to purchase a router with CyberGhost already installed.
Option 3 – Use a virtual router
You could also turn your phone or laptop into a mobile hotspot or virtual router and tether your Chromecast through these. This is how to set up a virtual router from your Mac or PC.
Just remember, you’ll need to keep your computer or phone on for the entire time you’ll be using your Chromecast.
Option 4 – Wireless screen mirroring
The fourth and simplest way is to cast your tab or Desktop. This involves mirroring the image from your phone or from your computer directly to your TV. Just be prepared that this will give you a low quality stream. You’ll also need a TV that allows screen mirroring and a smartphone or a computer with the CyberGhost VPN app installed.
Two things to remember:
1- You must first Cast Tab or Cast Desktop before you connect the VPN. if you do it the other way around, the Chromecast and laptop will be on different networks and won’t be able to link up.
2- You’ll need to pick “Cast Desktop” if you’re watching Netflix. If you just select Cast Tab it’ll open the Netflix app, instead of just mirroring the screen, and it won’t work.
Chromecast doesn’t have built-in VPN functions, so it’s not as simple as downloading the relevant app for your computer or smartphone. You’ll need to install CyberGhost VPN on your router. This is because the laptop or smartphone you’re using to control your Chromecast and the Chromecast dongle itself need to be connected to the same network.
It does, in the same way that your Google Chrome browser does, but you could switch to Chromecast's incognito mode to keep your browser history clear. All you need to do is type chrome://extensions, find the Google Cast section and select the "Allow in incognito" option.
This will let you Cast whatever you want without having others see what you’ve been up to, not your family or roommates sharing the Chromecast, or even Google itself.

You need to get CyberGhost VPN on your router to access content on your Chromecast. That’s because the device you’re using as your Chromecast remote must be connected to the same VPN server as your Chromecast (through the router) to communicate. It’s a bit of a business configuring your router, but it’s worth the effort. Now all your internet-connected devices have complete VPN protection and internet freedom, along with many other great benefits.
One of the main reasons to have CyberGhost VPN on your Chromecast is to access content. Streaming services restrict you based on your IP addresses if you’re located outside of their defined market. Connect to one of our streaming-optimized VPN servers to instantly swap your IP address with one where the channel is available. You can now enjoy full HD videos from Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, BBC iPlayer, and more, from anywhere, for as long as you like, with zero data caps or buffering.
No, we wouldn’t advise you to take your chances with a free VPN. Although tempting, free VPNs could compromise your online security. Nearly 40% of free VPNs are reported to contain malware, according to CSIRO research. That’s the last thing we want for you.
Free VPNs are also notoriously slow, so they won’t work well for streaming or gaming. Why make do, when you could have it all - total internet freedom with top speeds, unlimited bandwidth, and unbreakable security, with CyberGhost VPN?
With 11665 servers in 100 countries, we give you blazing-fast speeds and unlimited bandwidth. No more buffering, ISP throttling, or proxy errors with our VPN connection.
