Why Do You Need a VPN for Gaming?

It's all fun and games — until you get hit with a DDoS attack, your account gets stolen by hackers, or your ISP cuts off your bandwidth in the middle of the final fight. Your office or school might even have blocked gaming completely.

Luckily, a VPN easily casts all these problems aside. When gaming with a VPN connection, your real IP address is masked.

No one can intercept your traffic to steal your data, monitor your gaming activity, or target your device with a DDoS attack. This is especially useful if you like playing games on public Wi-Fi, which are hotspots for malicious activity and hackers.

You can even lower your ping as we'll route your internet traffic through the fastest servers in our network. Alternatively, you can choose for yourself — we display the ping, distance, and user load next to our server locations.

Start gaming with a VPN now. CyberGhost VPN is compatible with all popular devices and consoles:

Connect to Global VPN Servers for High-Speed Gaming

Servers are the foundation of any gaming VPN. When there are more servers, there’s a lower chance of network congestion and sluggish gameplay.

CyberGhost's servers run on 10 Gbps with zero bandwidth limits. We have a large server fleet spreading across 100 countries, so there’ll always be a faster available server near your location.

Enjoy lag-free gaming on Valorant, CS:GO, Fortnite, Minecraft, League of Legends, CoD: Warzone, FIFA™️, Apex Legends, and more! Never worry about unstable connections again.

The #1 VPN for Any Gaming Device

You don’t have to limit yourself to just a single gaming device. When you sign up for a CyberGhost account, you can connect up to 7 devices at once. You can even share your account and play together with friends and family.

CyberGhost VPN has native apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. It takes less than 5 minutes to sign up, launch the app, and start gaming!

If you’ve got a console (like PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo Switch), we recommend installing CyberGhost VPN onto your router. This automatically covers every device connected to the Wi-Fi network. Another option is to set up Smart DNS and connect to our global DNS servers.

Take us for a test drive with our 45-day money-back guarantee. We’re confident you’ll agree it’s the best gaming VPN in 2024, but it’s completely risk-free to get a full refund if you’re not 100% satisfied.

If you’ve ever experienced sudden time-lag or a dropped connection during a crucial fight, you were likely a DDoS attack victim.

Secure your game behind a VPN connection. DDoS attacks will get directed toward the IP address of the VPN server, not yours. Here’s the best part: CyberGhost’s servers are encrypted to brush off any DDoS attacks.

No matter the intensity of your rivals, you’ll never experience frozen screens or get kicked out of a game. You'll also get to laugh at cheaters once they realize their petty attacks were futile.

Win-win for you.

Get Around IP Bans

An IP ban is the worst punishment for any gamer. When handed one, you’ll no longer be able to log in to your account or create a new one to replace it. You might not have even done anything wrong to deserve the ban!

So how do you handle an IP ban? Get a new IP address from CyberGhost VPN.

All you have to do is connect to our VPN servers and you’ll bypass any IP ban. Our 256-bit AES encryption and built-in leak protection will hide your real IP address, so your game is none the wiser.

Ready to start gaming again? Our 24/7 Customer Support team can help you set up CyberGhost VPN on all your gaming devices.

Despite our enormous network, we’ve made it easy for you to choose the best server for optimal game performance.

On the Windows VPN app, you can find gaming-optimized servers in the For gaming section on the home screen. This is a quick way to get the lowest possible latency. You can choose from gaming-optimized servers in Frankfurt, London, New York, and Paris to improve your connection when gaming.

Alternatively, you can sort our servers by distance, load, and ping to minimize packet loss. Say hello to speedy loading times and goodbye to lag!

Boost Speeds & Lower Your Ping

Tired of lag spikes during Call of Duty matches? Bad ping is a major disadvantage when other players perform triple the action while it takes you to do one.

You don’t have to put up with lag or interruptions again. Reduce your game’s reaction time with CyberGhost VPN.

To improve your ping, connect to our gaming-optimized servers (Windows only) or a VPN server closer to you. CyberGhost’s server network spans 6 continents and 100 countries, so you’ll always be able to get a performance boost to one-up your rivals.

Improve your killstreak in just a few clicks!

If your game runs smoothly one minute and lags the next, your ISP may be throttling your speeds.

Bandwidth throttling often happens during peak internet usage hours (like weeknights). Your ISP will deliberately slow down your speeds to preserve data across their network.

Hide your online activity with CyberGhost VPN. When connected to our VPN server, all your online traffic gets redirected through our encrypted tunnel. As a result, you'll vanish from your ISP’s radar and regain full speed.

It’s time to leave your rivals in the dust!
