Why use a VPN for Oculus Quest?

While security and privacy are always the main reasons for using a VPN (Virtual Private Network), there are other benefits to using a VPN on Meta Quest 2.

DDoS protection

DDoS (Distributed Denial-of-Service) attacks can ruin your gaming experience by targeting your IP address. By using a VPN, you can hide your IP and protect yourself from such attacks.

No ISP throttling

Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) can slow down your connection if you’re doing data-heavy online activities like streaming or gaming. A VPN hides your activity from the ISP so you can binge your favorite shows lag-free.

Industry-leading encryption

Your VPN connection is only as secure as its encryption. Surfshark uses AES-256-GCM encryption, which is recognized by many VPN industry leaders as the best option on the market today.

No activity tracking

Surfshark does not keep any logs of your activity while connected to the VPN. Your online activity stays solely your private matter.

RAM-only servers

If you want to ensure your data stays safe, a VPN with RAM-only servers is the way to go. Since the server doesn’t have a hard drive, all its data is wiped every time it is reset.

Fastest VPN protocols

VPNs are known to reduce speed by a little. Surfshark offers WireGuard, the fastest VPN protocol, to ensure you don’t feel the VPN is even there.

How to use a VPN on Meta Quest 2 (Oculus Quest 2)

Installing a VPN on your Meta Quest 2 (Oculus Quest 2) may seem a bit tedious, but keeping your privacy safe when gaming is more than worth the effort. Here are the steps you need to take in order to protect your Meta Quest 2 with a VPN:

  1. Choose a Surfshark subscription and create an account.
  2. Create your Oculus account and set it up to enable developer mode.
  3. Download and set up SideQuest.
  4. Download the Surfshark APK and use SideQuest to install the Surfshark VPN app on your Meta Quest 2 device.
  5. Connect to a VPN server and start securely enjoying the wonders of VR.

Alternatively, you can set up a VPN on your router and protect all devices on your home network at the same time. No need for any additional setups as long as you stay connected to your home Wi-Fi.

Gaming with a VPN on Oculus Quest 2

A VPN for Oculus Quest 2 adds benefits to your gaming experience.

Game with everyone worldwide

Having fun should be border-free, so play with your friends from over the border by changing your server location — Surfshark has 3200+ servers in 100+ countries.

Game with lower ping

At times, a VPN may lower your ping by connecting you to servers closer to the game host. But before you do, connect to static servers or use the Dedicated IP feature to maintain a single IP so your game provider doesn’t flag you as a hacker for constantly changing IPs.

Game on public Wi-Fi safely

Public Wi-Fi isn’t always secure, and hackers can easily compromise Wi-Fi hotspots. A VPN encrypts your data before it leaves your device, which means you can enjoy your headset safely on any Wi-Fi.
