The faster your connection, the better the playing experience every gamer knows this. This is one of the reasons why many gamers opt for using a VPN software for gaming.
You can also use a gaming VPN to play multiplayer games in any region, protect yourself from DDoS attacks, connect to different servers worldwide (even if an IP from a particular country is needed) and keep your data secure. What’s not to love about them?
Here is my list of the top 3 best and fastest VPNs for gaming:
My ultimate favorite is ExpressVPN, as it provides you with ultimate data protection (due to the headquarters location). It has over 1,000 servers in 145 locations and 94 countries, including China, Russia, and Turkey, making for more options in location spoofing.
It is also beneficial when you’re traveling, as it allows you almost always to find a nearby server to connect to, making sure your internet speed is up to par.
It supports multiple VPN protocols: IPSEC, OpenVPN (TCP and UDP), L2TP, PPTP, and SSTP. There is client software for Linux, macOS and Windows, and apps for Android and iOS platforms, which they get extra points for. The interface itself is minimalistic and very eye-catching, as well as simple and user-friendly.
The VPN is actively helping you in choosing the best server to connect to through their speed test window.
An additional feature is a Kill Switch, which will prevent apps from connecting to the internet if the VPN is not connected, but will still permit communication with local network devices- like printers, phones, and other computers.
This VPN also has over 1,000 servers around the world and includes high-speed servers for video streaming. It has extra-secure servers for improved anonymity. An unusual and rare thing is the fact that it doesn’t interfere with Netflix, as a lot of VPNs do.
NordVPN supports IKEv2, and you’re able to manually connect your devices (Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, and Linux) through this protocol, and you can use up to 6 devices simultaneously. My favorite feature is the double-encryption option it has, routing traffic through a second VPN server. Some other features are easy to access to the TOR anonymization, P2P and BitTorrenting on specific servers and anti-DDoS servers. These features were built in response to actual problems users have, which I greatly appreciate.
IPVanish has one of my favorite features of them all- automatic IP address cycling. The protocols allowed are OpenVPN, L2TP, and PPTP. The interface is a bit crude and unappealing, but the fact that encrypted traffic on P2P and BitTorrent is possible on all 750 servers more than makes up for it. It also features a Kill Switch, which will prevent apps from connecting when it is not connected.
