Install NordVPN on a Chromecast

Depending on the generation of the Chromecast device, installing the VPN can be more or less complex. The latest versions of the multimedia player have the advantage of integrating the Google TV environment with access to the Play Store to download NordVPN's native Android TV application. Without an operating system, older models of Chromecast cannot work with the application. In this case, it is possible either to install NordVPN on the Internet box, or to create a secure mobile access point:


  • Install NordVPN on an Internet box
    Provided that the Internet box or the router is compatible with VPNs, it is possible to protect the entire network. Once the router configuration is complete, simply connect the Chromecast device to the Wi-Fi network to access the VPN network.
  • Create a mobile hotspot
    Install the NordVPN app on a computer or mobile device, and connect the VPN. Go to the device's Wi-Fi settings to create a "Wireless Mobile Hotspot" (Windows 10) or "Connection Sharing" (iOS), for example. Then select the Wi-Fi network protected by the VPN in the configuration options of the Chromecast device.

Use NordVPN on Chromecast

NordVPN's native Android TV app compatible with recent Chromecasts is the most comfortable solution. Once installed, enter your credentials (email address and password) to connect to the service. Adapted for use with the remote control supplied with the device, the interface is simple and user-friendly. Tap "Connect Now" on the homepage to connect to the fastest server, or choose your preferred location via the "All Countries" or "Specific Servers" menus. An ideal solution for viewing content from any streaming service in the world via Chromecast.


To use the VPN on Chromecast through a mobile access point, all you have to do is install the NordVPN client (Android, iOS, Windows, etc.) on the terminal from which you are streaming the content. Log in to your account, choose a VPN server and create a secure hotspot. All you have to do is connect the Chromecast to the same Wi-Fi network to stream content to your TV via NordVPN.

When the router is configured with NordVPN, all devices connected to the home network are protected by the VPN. If the router is connected for example to a server based in the United States, it is enough to connect the Chromecast to the Wi-Fi network to watch streaming services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video US, for example. This method is more restrictive, because you have to reconfigure the router with a new NordVPN server each time you want to change the location.
