You can indeed use VyprVPN to play games online. In fact, some of the features available have unique value to you when you log in to the game. Here are some examples:
- NAT Firewall - With no additional installations required, the NAT Firewall is available right out of the box. The benefit to gamers is it pushes away IP inquiries and protects you from DDoS attacks!
- VyprDNS - No additional installation required. It operates from the app and can be activated/deactivated from the Customize menu. Why this matters for gaming is the advanced Geo-location DNS handling. Very useful for games you want to play that are restricted to limited locations.
There are caveats to using a VPN to play online games. One concern is speed. We offer fast speed through our servers, but when connection fidelity to a game server is paramount, an encrypted connection through a VPN server can bring some noticeable difference in performance. That being said, a well-tuned network should handle the task with little difficulty.
