A virtual private network (VPN) is the most secure option when it comes to data efficiency and safety.Paid VPN for gamers provides many services, and the average monthly price is $5-10 depending on the desired ping and speeds. We will not recommend specific providers, but the Internet is full of guides for choosing a “gaming” VPN.
Keep in mind that technology has a number of serious limitations that should be noted.
First, speeds. 30 megabits for reception and 10 for upload is the maximum that you can squeeze out of a good consumer VPN.
Secondly, the ping will increase. From about 20 to 50 for close servers and a little more for international ones. Decide for yourself how critical it is for you.
So, you have chosen a VPN provider and now the service has given you a special file with settings. What to do next?
- Download and install the VPN program
- Right-click on the VPN icon in the tray and import your settings
- The connection is controlled by a classic pair of buttons “connect / disconnect”.
Do not forget that VPN affects device performance, and therefore old or very cheap models may not cope with this task.
