Can I use VyprVPN with my Nintendo Switch?

You may ask yourself, "Can I use VyprVPN with my Nintendo Switch?" That's a great question! Currently, Nintendo does not offer a method of VPN configuration on the device itself, nor do we have a dedicated app for it. However, there are several options you can choose from to use your VyprVPN connection with the Nintendo Switch!

Here are the ways you can set up VyprVPN to work with your Nintendo Switch:

Option #1: Use the VyprVPN Router App

The VyprVPN Router App is designed to protect all devices in your home. Anything connected to the router via Wi-Fi or Ethernet can use the VPN connection, including your Nintendo Switch!

Use this guide to assist with setup and to see if your router is compatible.

Option #2: Share your internet connection with the Nintendo Switch

If you do not have a router capable of running the VyprVPN Router App, the next most convenient setup would be to share your Mac or PC's internet connection with the Nintendo Switch. This effectively creates a new wireless network from the VyprVPN connection on your Mac or PC that the Nintendo Switch can connect to.

Option #3: Setup VyprVPN in your DD-WRT, Tomato or Asus router

This option has the same intended goal of allowing all devices that are connected to the router to use VyprVPN but without the VyprVPN Router App interface and extra options such as Per-Device VPN and on-demand server selection. This is a good option if a router setup sounds attractive, you don't have router firmware capable of running the VyprVPN Router App, and your router is running DD-WRT, Tomato or Asus firmware.
