How to Get a VPN on the PS5

PlayStation 5, the newest generation of PlayStation consoles, was officially unveiled yesterday. It was revealed that the system will be region free, running on a custom modified version of the x86 architecture. It will also come with a built-in VPN client and allow users to easily access online content without restrictions.

With the recent news of the PlayStation 5, many consumers are wondering how they can get a VPN on their console.

It’s actually quite simple to get a VPN on the PlayStation 5. Simply follow this guide, and you’ll be up and running in no time.

Get A VPN Account

The first step is to get a VPN account, and you’ll want to make sure you get one that supports the PlayStation 5. The most popular VPN services for computer, mobile, and tablet use, androids, iOS, and Windows OS support, all have a version of their apps optimized for use on the PlayStation 5.

Make sure to download the Google Play Store version of the app. This will work with all versions of the PlayStation 5, including the Pro consoles. Also, make sure to download the VPN app from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.josephwaugh.securevpn or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.evanwbailey.securevpn. You’ll know which app is for you because the store listing will clearly say which console it is optimized for.

Get A VPN For Your Console

Now that you have a VPN account, you can move onto the next step and get a VPN for your console. To get started, simply find the console that you have, and head over to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.josephwaugh.securevpn or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.evanwbailey.securevpn and download the app. Now, you’ll be prompted to enter your email address. Enter the email address you use for your PlayStation account, and you’ll be taken to the setup screen. Follow the instructions to connect your VPN account to your console.

Install The VPN App On Your Console

Once you’ve connected your VPN account to your console, you can install the VPN app. From there, you can access the console’s settings and configure the app to your liking. You’ll also want to install the VPN app for all users on your console. Enabling VPN for all users makes it a lot easier for everyone to connect and use the service while playing.

Now, you’ll want to open the app and click the three horizontal dots in the upper-right corner. This will bring up the app’s settings menu. Click the gear icon (cog) at the top right, and you’ll see a popup menu. Click the menu, and you’ll see the VPN setup screen. From here, you can configure the following items:

  • Region
  • Country
  • Server
  • Automatically connect to server
  • Add extra servers (only available in premium accounts)
  • Password
  • Confirm Password
  • Log file
  • Check mark boxes for required protocols (PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP)
  • Change the VPN icon

Once you’ve configured the VPN app and launched it for the first time, you’ll see the following screen:

This is the VPN app’s main screen and will display the name of the connected server, the current connection status, and other relevant information. To connect to a different server, simply click the gear icon (cog) at the top right and choose a new server from the list.

Click the gear icon a second time, and you’ll see another menu with the settings you configured. Choose the VPN tab and click Connect to see the status of your connection. If you’re still having trouble connecting, try the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Check the status of your internet connection.
  • Clear your browser’s cache.
  • Restart your device.
  • Check if a virus is accessing the internet on your computer.
  • Try a different VPN app.
  • Contact customer support.

Once you’ve successfully connected to the VPN server, you’ll see the following screen:

This is the VPN app’s main screen, and it will display the websites and apps you were able to access while connected to the VPN. If you’re on the move and wish to use your console on the go, simply connect to a WiFi network before you play. This will ensure that no one else can access the network while you’re using it, preventing others from snooping on your game traffic.
