Frequently asked questions
What’s the difference between smart DNS and VPN?
Smart DNS will enable you to do some of the same things that a VPN can - like accessing specific streaming services. On the other hand, the VPN apps have most of the prized Surfshark features.
Can I set up a VPN on my Xbox?
That depends if you just want some of the VPN functionality on your Xbox, or whether you would like to benefit from a VPN on a network level. If you only want some of the VPN functions on your Xbox, smart DNS is a great choice.
However, you can set up a VPN on your router and that way, protect your entire network - all the devices that connect to the internet at your home. Your traffic will be encrypted, which adds an extra layer of security and privacy. You can find the setup guides here.
Is smart DNS safe to use on my Xbox?
Yes, all Surfshark apps & features are safe to use. Still, you should take care to comply with your local and international laws. And if you’re a fan of advanced security features, you’re going to love our VPN apps - they’re the real security buffs here.
Will smart DNS slow down my connection speed on my Xbox?
Don’t worry - you shouldn’t notice any difference in your usual connection speed.
