How to Set Up Smart DNS on Samsung TV with CyberGhost 

Struggling to access content on your Samsung TV? Well, that’s where Smart DNS comes in handy. This feature allows you to change your virtual location directly on your smart TV, by changing the DNS servers on your device to our DNS servers. You can change your location to the US, the UK, Germany, or Japan. Here’s how to get set up.

  1. Make sure Smart DNS is enabled in your CyberGhost Account Dashboard.

  1. Using your Samsung TV remote, head to settings. For some remotes, the settings button will be on the unit, but if it’s not, you should be able to get there via your smart TV’s home screen.
  2. Select Network from the list available, select Network Status, and allow the connection to verify.
  3. Choose IP Settings.
  4. Within the IP Settings menu, choose DNS Settings and enter the DNS manually.
  5. Confirm the settings, restart your TV, and you’re all set.

It’s important to remember that Smart DNS isn’t the same as a VPN connection. It won’t mask your IP address or encrypt your data like a VPN does.

Can I install CyberGhost VPN on a Samsung Smart TV?

1. Configure CyberGhost VPN on your Wi-Fi router
2. Share your VPN connection from a different device
3. Set up Smart DNS directly on your Samsung TV.

What other devices does CyberGhost VPN work on?

CyberGhost VPN has native apps available for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Linux, so you won’t have a problem using your VPN on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. If you’re using a device that doesn’t directly support VPNs, like an Apple TV or game console, you can configure CyberGhost VPN on your router and protect all devices on your Wi-Fi network. 

Can I use a free VPN with my Samsung TV?

It’s not recommended. Free VPNs usually can’t provide fast enough speeds for streaming, which means lots of buffering and lag. They’re known to have smaller server networks which get congested, or worse, don’t have servers available in the location you need. But even if you manage to get connected, you’ll probably have data caps that limit how much you can stream.
Instead, try CyberGhost VPN risk-free with our45-day money-back guarantee.. Our server network spreads across 100 countries, with 10-Gbps servers in popular locations, and special streaming-optimized servers for popular platforms. Every account comes with unlimited bandwidth too, so you can stream as much TV as you want!
