Does a VPN Work on PUBG and PUBG Lite?

You can use a VPN while playing PUBG without any issues. If you’re playing PUBG on your PC, it’s simply a case of installing the VPN app, connecting to a VPN server, and starting your PUBG game as normal.

If you’re playing on a games console then you’ll need to follow our VPN gaming setup guides to play PUBG with a VPN.

VPNs did work on PUBG Lite before it was discontinued.

VPNs are legal in India but there are a few conditions to keep in mind.

There have been cases of VPN restrictions in the northern region of Kashmir and Jammu. If you’re suspected of using a VPN to incite secessionist ideals then you may be detained for questioning.

It’s still legal to use a VPN in Kashmir but we strongly advise against it. If you live elsewhere in India, though, then you should be fine.

There’s also the issue of India’s intrusive data laws. As of April 2022, the India government has ordered all VPN companies to log customer data for a minimum of five years.

This means that the India government would have access to the entirety of your online activity, including the now banned PUBG Mobile.

However, you can use our best VPNs for PUBG to bypass this entirely. Connecting to a server in a nearby country like Sri Lanka or Pakistan allows you to maintain fast connection speeds without compromising your personal information.

EXPERT ADVICE: We recommend connecting to a VPN server in Sri Lanka to play PUBG Mobile. It’s near India and a PUBG game server, guaranteeing low ping and fast speeds. It’s also exempt from any intrusive data laws.

What's the Best VPN for PUBG Crate Opening?

It’s widely reported that you can use a VPN to connect to a country with better loot or a higher chance of getting rare items.

There’s zero evidence that this is the case. PUBG crates are randomized and have no correlation to your IP address.

You can, however, use a VPN to bypass geo-restrictions on PUBG crates.

PUBG Mobile's statement on the banning of loot boxes

Since 2018 the Netherlands has viewed loot boxes as a form of gambling.

If you live in the Netherlands or Belgium you won’t be able to open crates on your PUBG account.

Creating a new PUBG account, while connected to a VPN server in a different country, allows you to bypass this.
