CyberGhost Best VPN for Xbox

How to Set Up a VPN for Xbox

Xbox consoles don’t support VPNs natively, unfortunately. The good news is that you can still use CyberGhost VPN with your Xbox. Here’s how you can get started:

Use a VPN Router

Use a VPN Router

Some of the better routers and modems support VPNs. You just have to sign up for CyberGhost VPN, then go into the settings, configure the router to use the VPN server of your choice, and get to playing.

Don’t forget to check out our recommendations for the best VPN-compatible routers. Some even come with CyberGhost pre-configured, and that can save you a lot of time.

There are apps that will allow you to use either a PC or a smartphone as a router. We recommend a PC with a wired connection, but either will work. Just install the app, configure the virtual router to use CyberGhost VPN, and connect your Xbox to the internet via your virtual router.

Try Out Smart DNS

If using a router isn’t an option, or you only need to change your virtual location to the US or the UK, you can use CyberGhost’s Smart DNS feature. All you have to do is configure your Xbox’s DNS settings to use our DNS servers, and you can access content from either country.

With this option, you don’t get the encryption features of the VPN, but it works.

Why Do You Need a VPN for Xbox?

Reduce Your Ping

Reduce Your Ping

The Xbox scene is known for being competitive, and that’s not going to change now that Microsoft owns CoD. By routing your traffic through a VPN server close to the game servers, you can sometimes create a more direct connection that actually lowers your ping.

Whether you’re crushing it in Apex Legends or messing around in the Master Chief Collection, you don’t have to worry about getting hit with a DDoS attack if you’re using CyberGhost VPN. It hides your IP address, and it’s worth it.

Get Games and DLC from Other Regions

Get Games and DLC from Other Regions

Sometimes Xbox games and DLC come out sooner in some regions than others. Sometimes they don’t come out in your country at all. You can use a VPN to change your IP address to the country in question and enjoy all the games you want.

Some ISPs will throttle game traffic for reasons we can only imagine. The good news is that by encrypting and redirecting your internet traffic through VPN servers, even your ISP won’t know what that data is for. They can’t selectively throttle what they can’t read.

Enjoy Cloud Gaming with CyberGhost VPN

Enjoy Cloud Gaming with CyberGhost VPN

Xbox Cloud Gaming lets you play your Xbox games on almost any device by running the games in the cloud and streaming the visuals to you. CyberGhost VPN can help you smooth out the gameplay, and even potentially reduce latency by creating a more direct connection to the servers.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is currently available in the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States.

Connect to Game Servers All Over the World

Whatever game you’re trying to play, and wherever its data centers are, CyberGhost VPN probably has a server close by. We’ve got servers in 100 countries, so we can get you a good, safe connection to just about anything you want, whether it’s Gears 5 multiplayer, or a Valheim server. We even have 10-Gbps servers in our most popular locations, so you don’t have to worry about your VPN connection slowing you down.

At no point during your swashbuckling adventures on the Sea of Thieves should you have to worry about randomly getting disconnected. CyberGhost VPN doesn’t implement data caps at all, so sing shanties with your friends and loot until you’re sick of gold. Can one get sick of gold? You know what? Go find out.

Access your favorite websites securely with CyberGhost VPN

Unlimited Data Means Marathon Game Sessions


Yes, you can! But not directly. There is currently no iteration of the Xbox that natively supports VPN apps, so you’ll need to configure your VPN on your router or modem. Assuming, of course, that your router or modem supports VPNs. You’ll also want a VPN that specifically supports configuration via router, so CyberGhost VPN is your best choice.

If you’re having any trouble getting your router set up, contact our Customer Support team via live chat or email for quick assistance. They’ll help you get back to some Halo Infinite in no time, with minimal fuss.

No, the Xbox platform doesn’t have any particular problem with you using a VPN. It’s well known that gamers use them for safety reasons, and to potentially lower their ping, so VPNs themselves are allowed. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can use it however you want.

Specific games do sometimes try to block them. The games that don’t can still sometimes give you a little trouble, because some people use VPNs to cheat in various ways. If the anti-cheat software for a game thinks you’re using a VPN to be shady, you can still get banned.

Yes you can! But for most of them, including Xbox, you’ll need to use that VPN via your router or modem. You’ll also need a router or modem that supports VPNs, because not all of them do. But once it’s all set up, you can basically forget about it, until you want to change countries to try and get a better ping rate for a different game. But this approach should technically work for every console that can access the internet, including PlayStation and Nintendo Switch as well.

All. The. Time. VPNs are often used by pro gamers and streamers in particular, both for the added security provided by the encryption of their internet data, and for potentially lower ping rates. Also, a VPN hides your IP address, which can help protect you from DDoS attacks and other annoyances.

Even if you’re not playing games in front of thousands, a good VPN can also bypass network blocks on game servers, keep your ISP from seeing what you’re doing, and prevent the throttling of game traffic. They’re just that useful all around.

Sometimes, yes. Whenever a game gets released in another region before yours, you can use a VPN to route your internet traffic to the country in question. You may also need to change the region for your account in your account settings, but it’s certainly doable.

This can also help you play games that are, for one reason or another, locked to another country. You’ll probably need to know the local language in that country, and your ping might not be the best, but it’s a great option for accessing single-player games.
