Roku streaming devices don't support VPN applications, which means that you can't install and run a VPN directly on Roku. That said, CyberGhost VPN offers a few viable alternatives. The best option is to set up CyberGhost on your router, which covers your entire household at once.

Another option is to turn your computer into a virtual router. However, you'll keep your computer on whenever you want to use Roku. You can also use CyberGhost by screen-mirroring your smartphone or tablet with a VPN connection running on your device in the background.

In this guide, we'll go over all of the possible ways to use CyberGhost VPN with Roku. Also, expect handy screenshots throughout.

How to Set Up CyberGhost on Roku

Depending on the equipment you have, you can utilize a VPN-ready router to extend CyberGhost's reach to Roku. Alternatively, you can create a virtual router or use screen mirroring. Let's explain everything.

Method #1: Get CyberGhost on Roku Through a Physical Router

For this method, you need a router that supports VPN connections. You'll need to set up a connection to your chosen VPN server manually and then connect from your Roku - like so:

1. Sign up for CyberGhost using any Web-connected device and your favorite browser.

2. Set up CyberGhost on a router (use the provided link for our in-depth guide).

3. Next, turn to your Roku and navigate to Settings > Network.

4. Go to Setup Connection > Wireless (if you use Wi-Fi instead of Ethernet).

5. Pick your VPN network, provide its password, and connect. That's it!

Method #2: Get CyberGhost on Roku Through a Virtual Router

If you have a Windows computer, you can share your VPN connection over Wi-Fi. In other words, you'll turn your computer into a virtual router. Go through the following steps:

1. Subscribe to CyberGhost using a Web browser on your Windows PC.

2. Proceed to set up CyberGhost on Windows (download and install its application).

3. Launch the VPN app and go through the initial setup procedure. You'll need to agree to the VPN's terms, provide your username and password, and connect to a server.

4. On your Windows PC, navigate to Start > Settings > Network & Internet.

10. Use your Roku to connect to the newly created VPN network. That's it!

Method #3: Use CyberGhost on Roku Through Screen Mirroring

Screen mirroring allows you to duplicate what you see on your smartphone or tablet onto your large-screen TV through Roku. This is a viable workaround since phones and tablets can run VPNs. Let's show you what needs to be done.

1. Get your CyberGhost subscription using any device with a Web browser.

2. Set up CyberGhost on your mobile device using its App Store. Here's more information on how to set up CyberGhost on iPhone and Android devices.

3. Open CyberGhost, log in to your account and pick a VPN server.

4. On your mobile device, find the screen mirroring option. Here's more information on how that's done on iPhone and Android phones/tablets. Select your Roku.

5. You'll now see your VPN-protected/unblocked content on your Roku. That's it!

Final Thoughts

Even though screen mirroring is the easiest option, you'll have to share your screen every time you want to watch something on your Roku. That said, we recommend going for the router-based method, as doing so will protect your entire household at once - not just your Roku device.

Of course, we'll remind you that you can set up CyberGhost on plenty more devices. Use the provided link to learn more, and leave no stone unturned when it comes to your privacy protection. Remember that your CyberGhost subscription comes with 7 simultaneous connections.
