How to set up a VPN on PlayStation

There are three ways to encrypt all connections on your PlayStation with NordVPN:

NordVPN is set up on a router, so the whole network is secured

Use your router

  1. See if your router is VPN-compatible. Most modern routers support VPN connections, though some may need a manual configuration. Check if you have a VPN router.
  2. Once you have set up a VPN connection on your router, simply connect your PlayStation to your Wi-Fi network.

Connect a PlayStation to your Windows PC

1. Get the NordVPN app for your Windows PC.

2. Head to “Control panel” > “Network and internet” > “Network and sharing center.” Select “Change adapter settings.”

3. Then, right-click “TAP-NordVPN Windows” and choose “Properties.”

4. Open the sharing tab and turn on “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection.” Select the network you want to share the connection with.

5. After changing adapter settings, remember to switch to the right VPN protocol (TCP or UDP) on the NordVPN app.

6. Connect the PC to your console using an ethernet cable. Then, open the NordVPN app and connect to a server.

7. That’s it – your console is now protected by a VPN.

Another option is using a hotspot. Install the NordVPN app on your Windows PC, create a hotspot, and connect your PlayStation. Learn more.

Use SmartDNS

SmartDNS can be a great tool, especially for devices that do not support VPNs natively. But changing the DNS will not necessarily change your IP address and it does not provide privacy or security.

1. Go to the Nord Account dashboard > Services > NordVPN and click “Enable” on the SmartDNS tab.

2. Activate the SmartDNS feature by clicking on “Activate SmartDNS.” Wait while the service is activated.

3. On your PS5, go to “Settings” > “Network”’ > “Settings” > “Set up Internet connection.”

4. Click on your connection and select “Advanced settings” and “DNS settings.” Select “Manual.”

5. Enter as the primary DNS address.

6. Enter as the secondary DNS address.

How to choose the best VPN provider for PlayStation


Lag is the killer of gaming. When choosing a VPN provider, make sure to pay special attention to the speed of the service to avoid any bandwidth throttling whatsoever.


A game you want to play might be unavailable in your area. A large network of servers allows you to enjoy gaming whether you’re in Canada, the UK, Australia, or anywhere else in the world.


Ease of use is everything these days. Look for a VPN app that has a comprehensive interface, is lightweight, and can run on multiple devices simultaneously ⁠— you’ll thank yourself later.
