Connecting the Google Chromecast to VPN

Modified on: Mon, 24 Jul, 2017 at 1:43 PM


Unfortunately the Chromecast does not allow you to set up a VPN connection on the device itself, therefore something else needs to connect to our VPN service and then share that connection with the device. 


The easiest method is to configure our service on a router that is VPN compatible. Basically this means the router will connect directly to our VPN network and then any device connected to the router, such as the Chromecast you're currently using will automatically connect to our network.


While some routers come pre-configured with VPN functions, most of the well known ones, i.e Linksys, Buffalo, Dlink, Asus etc requires you to install a custom firmware in order to get the VPN functionality.


To configure your VPN router to connect to our service, kindly follow one of the guides below.

Once your router has been set up with our VPN service, all you need to do is connect your mobile device as well as Chromecast to that router and you can immediately begin freely casting geo-locked content from your mobile device to the Chromecast.


If you would like more information on the router option first before giving it a try or if you need any further information, please send an email to support@my-private-network.co.uk and we will do our best to assist you.
