How to Set Up and Use CyberGhost VPN on LG Smart TV

LG Smart TVs use webOS, which doesn't natively support any VPN client. This means that you cannot install the CyberGhost VPN app directly on your TV. However, you can use CyberGhost VPN's Smart DNS feature to bypass geo-restrictions on your LG TV and watch your favorite content.

The Smart DNS feature is essentially a proxy that assigns you a different virtual location of your choice. However, it is important to note that it's not the same as a VPN, and it does not encrypt your Web traffic.

In this article, we'll provide comprehensive instructions on how to configure CyberGhost VPN on LG TV.

How to Set Up CyberGhost VPN on LG Smart TV

To set up CyberGhost VPN on LG TV, you need to copy the DNS addresses from the VPN's account dashboard and update them in your Smart TV settings. Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. First, sign up for CyberGhost VPN using a Web browser and any Web-connected device.

2. Go back to CyberGhost VPN's account login page and enter your Username and Password.

3. Navigate to SmartDNS > Enable Smart DNS and wait a couple of seconds.

Final Thoughts

Configuring CyberGhost VPN's Smart DNS feature on your LG TV is a one-time process that takes less than 5 minutes. However, if you ever want to change your virtual location, you'll have to reconfigure it with the new DNS addresses from your VPN account's dashboard.

Let's not forget that CyberGhost VPN allows you to connect up to 7 devices simultaneously. So, why not take benefit of this by downloading and installing CyberGhost VPN on all your other devices? Since it supports a wide range of platforms, you can secure almost all your devices, like computers, tablets, smartphones, and more.
