How to use Proton VPN for gaming
Why Proton VPN for gaming?
Using a VPN gives you an extra layer of security when gaming, especially when connected to public WiFi or live streaming. You can also choose from a wider range of servers on a game’s network or connect to your usual server whenever you travel.
Global high-speed server network
Speed is everything when it comes to gaming. Connecting to a nearby server will ensure you enjoy a seamless gaming experience. And our unique VPN Accelerator will help you keep a fast and secure connection as you play.
Unlimited bandwidth and data
We don't impose any bandwidth or data limits. So you can enjoy the best gaming experience with no interruptions or throttling.
All your gaming traffic is encrypted with AES-256 or ChaCha20, which are both extremely secure. You can play and stream safely even while connected to public WiFi.
Gaming safely with Proton VPN
WireGuard is a lightweight, fast, and secure VPN protocol that gives you exceptional VPN speeds, improved performance, and even extends your battery life compared to other protocols — perfect for when you're gaming from your laptop.
If you don't use a VPN, your internet service provider (ISP) can see that you're gaming and slow down your internet, which is known as throttling. Proton VPN hides your online activity from your ISP, helping you avoid throttling.
