Android TV VPN FAQ

Will a VPN work on my Android TV?

Yes. Surfshark VPN, vetted by Google and available via the Google Play Store, is guaranteed to work with any up-to-date Android operating system. But if your Android version is older than Android 5 (Lollipop), you may not even see the Surfshark app on the store. Is there anything you can do in this case? Yes, you can sideload the app – just read our guide on how to set up a VPN on Android TV.

Do I need an Android TV VPN?

There are a few reasons why you might need an Android TV VPN.

Streaming video uses a lot of internet bandwidth. That’s why internet service providers would like to spy on your traffic and slow your connection down when you’re streaming videos (this also happens to online gaming and more). But a VPN shields your data from the ISP, and you can watch what you want without slowdowns. 

Furthermore, streaming devices can be hacked. But when the VPN is shielding your connection, this becomes much harder to do.

Can I use a free Android TV VPN?

You should definitely not use a free VPN with your Android TV – or any other device. Free VPNs don’t have the funding to keep up with the latest developments in technology and can’t offer you the most secure encryption and tunneling. 

Even without development costs, there’s the question of maintenance. How do they pay for keeping the servers running for a free VPN? One possibility is that the free VPNs keep logs of your browsing data – and sell them to advertisers. That is, if it’s not doing something more insidious – about a third of free VPN apps on the Google Play Store contain malware.

Is an Android TV VPN legal?

Yes, there’s nothing illegal in using a VPN on Android platforms. Some countries like Russia or China restrict or heavily regulate VPN use, but it is not an issue in most of the world.

However, it’s safe to say that doing anything against the law with a VPN is still illegal.

Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in any way that would potentially violate the law or the Terms of Service of other service providers.
