Chromecast doesn’t natively support VPNs, but you can install PIA on your router. That way you can use the VPN on your Chromecast. Your PIA subscription comes with access to our Smart DNS, a streamlined version of the VPN with only the tools you need for streaming. Smart DNS doesn’t redirect or encrypt your data, giving you the best streaming speeds.

Chromecast doesn’t natively support VPNs, so you can’t install the app directly to the device as you would with a smartphone. Instead, you’ll need to install PIA VPN on your router.

Once you’ve done that, any connected device is protected, including your casting device. As a bonus, your router only counts as 1 of unlimited devices on your account, no matter how many other devices you connect to it.

Yes, but you can avoid having your traffic monitored with a VPN. Install PIA on your router to get VPN encryption on every device and hide your IP address. Encrypted data is unreadable to third parties, and with a new IP address, they won’t know your location. This way, you’ll get complete anonymity while you cast your favorite shows.

No, not if you use the smart DNS option. This is a version of the VPN that doesn’t encrypt or redirect your data, so it doesn't affect your connection speed in any way.

Our full VPN app also gives you lightning-fast speeds. Our 10 Gbps NextGen VPN server network is so fast, you won't even notice you're using a VPN.

Some work with Chromecast, but they're not a good idea. Most free VPNs won’t let you install their app on routers. Chromecast doesn’t natively support VPNs, so you’ll be out of luck.

Free VPNs often don’t have the security features you need, like a strict No Logs policy. They’ll often run slow and usually offer limited server locations.

PIA VPN lets you install the app to your router to use on Chromecast. We have a strict No Logs policy to protect your data, and an international network of blazing-fast servers.

Take us for a test drive with our risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

First, launch Netflix on your desktop or mobile device and pick the show you want to watch. Then, look for the square Cast icon in the corner. Tap the icon and start watching your show on your TV. Make sure your PIA app is enabled to protect your Chromecast and avoid ISP throttling. PIA also lets you unblock Netflix on your school or workplace network.
