VPNs, or virtual private networks, are a great way to keep your internet traffic secure. But what if you could also use a VPN to protect your Minecraft account, bypass IP bans, or even reduce lags?
In this post, we’ll show you the benefits of using a Minecraft VPN!
What Are the Advantages of Using a Minecraft VPN?
The most important advantages of using a VPN in Minecraft are the possibility of bypassing IP bans, protection against DDoS attacks, and the potential of reducing ping and thus lag.
In the following paragraphs, we will go into more detail about each of these points.
Bypass IP bans
If you are trying to connect to a server that has banned your IP address, you can use VPN software to bypass it.
Simply connect to a VPN server in a country of your choice and then try connecting to the server again. This should give you a new IP address that has not been blocked.
This also works if you are trying to bypass geo-blocks, for example, if Minecraft is blocked in your current location.
Reduce ping and lag
A VPN van also help improve your connection speed and reduce lags. If you are playing on a server that is far from your physical location, your latency tends to be higher than if you were connecting to a nearby server.
While this can’t be circumvented by using a VPN, it is sometimes possible for data packets to be sent through a VPN server by a more direct route to the host, effectively reducing your ping.
Protect against DDoS attacks in Minecraft
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)-Attack is an attack that attempts to make a server or network inaccessible by flooding it with requests.
When you connected via VPN server while playing, it becomes impossible for would-be attackers to determine your actual IP address. As a result, the attack bounces off the VPN server instead of reaching you.
So, if you’ve ever had problems with DDoS attacks in Minecraft, a VPN can help.
How to Set Up a Minecraft VPN on Windows, Mac, iPhone, or Android Smartphones?
Setting up a VPN for Minecraft is relatively simple, no matter what device you use. To do so, simply download our VPN software and follow the instructions on your screen.
Can You Use a VPN to Play Minecraft on Consoles?
The short answer to this would be a “no”, since most consoles such as PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series do not offer VPN support. However, thanks to the Shellfire Box, it is still possible to activate a VPN connection on these consoles.
We’ll show you how quickly and easily this works in the following video.
In summary, you just need to connect the Shellfire Box to your router to get started. A new Wi-Fi network will then appear, which will automatically connect all linked devices to the Internet via VPN.
This allows you to use our VPN with pretty much any device that can connect to the Internet. In addition to the aforementioned consoles, these also include Smart TVs, Apple TV and streaming sticks such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick or Google Chromecast.
If you are looking for a way to improve your Minecraft experience, Shellfire VPN is worth considering. Whether it’s to bypass IP bans, protect yourself from DDoS attacks, or even reduce your ping, you can count on Shellfire VPN to have your back.
