Yes, but you’ll need to do a little setup. PlayStation doesn’t natively support VPNs, so the best way to protect your console is to install PIA on your router. Simply change your virtual location on your router, and access restricted content and servers from your PlayStation. You can also install it on your PC and then tether the connection or use PIA’s Smart DNS.

If you’re just looking to hide your IP address and change virtual location without encrypting your connection, our Smart DNS feature works on PlayStation too.

Possibly, yes. Our high-speed server network is optimized for gaming and streaming. We find the fastest route from your access point to your gaming server to give you the lowest possible ping. This is essential for reducing lag, improving response times, and making your game run smoothly.

Furthermore, encrypting your traffic means hiding it from your ISP, which means they can’t throttle your speed because you’re gaming. Reach out to our 24/7 Customer Support team if you have questions about increasing your gaming speeds.

No. You’re not breaking any rules by using a VPN for PS4 or PS5. You aren’t hurting other players, and you aren’t gaining an unfair advantage when you reduce your lag. Of course, we don’t condone using a PlayStation VPN to violate user agreements or in-game rules (this could get you banned). Go ahead and subscribe to PIA VPN to use your VPN without worries.

The biggest benefit is reducing ping, which in turn reduces lag. Your game will run more smoothly, and you won’t have to worry about stuttering messing up your great Fortnite plays.

A gaming VPN also gives you great protection against DDoS attacks. By hiding your IP address, and absorbing the brunt of the attack, PIA servers let you enjoy your game without being slowed down or frozen out.

All of them! Even though consoles aren’t natively compatible with VPNs, you can use PIA with all of them when you install our VPN on your router. This allows you to protect your entire network, including your Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, or any other device.

A single PIA subscription lets you connect on unlimited devices simultaneously, and your router only counts as one device - no matter how many devices are connected to it. Secure all your tech at home and on the go, or give your family and friends cutting-edge protection.

You can configure most routers to use a VPN, it’s not hard. Check out our knowledge base or reach out to our 24/7 customer support team if you have questions.

Your best bet is to buy a VPN-compatible FlashRouter. These are routers already configured for a VPN. You can even buy one with PIA pre-installed. They require little setup, giving you a quick plug-and-play solution for PlayStation.
