You will no longer need to install a VPN application onto your network connected devices. By running a VPN on your home router, all devices that connect to it are protected!
The VPN used in the tutorials below is IPVanish which works great on Xbox One due to its blazing fast download speeds and zero log retention policy. It is important to pick the fastest VPN available since we are streaming large files through the Xbox One.
IPVanish allows up to ten simultaneous connections per account.
