Protection from DDoS attacks
Never become a target of a DDoS attack. With NordVPN, you won’t be slowed down or disconnected from the game because someone decided to overwhelm your network.
Play at lightning speed
Shorter connection routes between you and the gaming servers can reduce lag and in-game delay. Connect to a NordVPN server closest to the game’s own servers, and get an advantage over other players.
With 5200+ servers across 60 countries to choose from, NordVPN lets you switch between servers to get the fastest connection speeds possible.
Avoid bandwidth throttling
Lag can ruin a game. Hide your data traffic from your ISP and experience gaming at full speed – they won’t be able to stop you.
There are two different ways to encrypt your internet connection on your Nintendo Switch with NordVPN:
Use a hotspot
This option is available on a rooted Android device or a custom ROM. Install NordVPN on your laptop, smartphone, or tablet and connect to any VPN server you want. Next, set up a mobile hotspot and connect your Nintendo Switch to it. That’s it — all data traveling to and from your Nintendo will be encrypted. Note: rooting your device is not recommended as it may strip you of in-built Android security features.
Use a VPN router
Install NordVPN on your home Wi-Fi router. This method will take more time, but you will be able to secure not only your Nintendo Switch but every other connected device in your home as well.
