Your internet service provider (ISP) isn’t your friend when it comes to online gaming. PvP matches are good fun, but they take up a lot of bandwidth, causing your ISP’s servers to become slow and overloaded. To prevent this scenario, your ISP resorts to throttling, or intentionally slowing down, your connection. Which means lag, buffering, and even crashes.
Luckily, with CyberGhost VPN you can resume your online matches. Since a VPN reroutes your traffic, your ISP can no longer see what you’re up to or throttle you.

We know ranking up in battle royale games takes a lot of time and practice. And that it might be tempting to try out auto-aim or noclip mods. But these count as cheating, and they will get you banned. With a VPN, you can hide your IP and bypass the ban. Though you might need to create a separate account.
Just be on your best behavior next time to avoid a permaban.

Nintendo is famous for not barring playing based on their geo-location. But the company still needs to comply with local laws.
Fan favorites like Animal Crossing, Fortnite, or Plague Inc. aren't available within Chinese territories, while third-party games like Mortal Kombat 11 are famous for being banned in countries like Australia or Indonesia.
But with a VPN you can create a new account and access games that aren’t available in your region.

It’s not all fun and games. Whenever you’re in an online lobby, people can see your IP address, which puts you at risk of DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks. These attacks overload your internet connection and cause everything to crash.
But you can use CyberGhost VPN to hide your IP and encrypt your connection which will make it impossible for attackers to target you.

Q: Can I use a VPN on Nintendo Switch?
Nintendo Switches don’t support VPN apps natively. But it’s still possible to use a VPN service on your Switch. CyberGhost VPN offers a Smart DNS feature that you can use to secure your gaming console. It’s a great way to use a VPN service without taking up space on the Switch 32 GB memory.
Q: Is a free VPN for Nintendo Switch any good?
Not at all. Free VPNs aren’t safe to use at all, because they resort to monitoring and selling your data to third parties for profit. But the bad news doesn’t end here. If you’re looking to play online games, free VPNs are a bad idea because they’re very slow and overcrowded. To get a stable connection you need a paid VPN. The good news is that you can try out CyberGhost VPN risk free with our 45-day money back guarantee.
Q: Does CyberGhost VPN keep logs of what users do with the app?
No, we don’t keep any records of what you do on our servers. We don’t even know what you do on our servers. We have a strict No Logs policy in place, which means we never monitor or store your browsing history, IP address, bandwidth usage, or DNS requests.
Q: Will my internet speed slow down if I used a VPN while playing on Nintendo Switch?
VPNs are designed to reroute your internet traffic and add a layer of encryption to your connection, so you can expect some speed loss. But not all VPNs are created equal. CyberGhost VPN has a top-tier server fleet with 7000+ servers in 90 countries, designed to make your speed loss minimal. These fast VPN servers will make you forget you’re even connected to a virtual private network.
