Avast VPN on Samsung Smart TV
« on: July 17, 2022, 08:20:27 PM »
Hello together, how can I secure my Samsung Smart TV via VPN?

I found the following instructions on a German site:

    First, turn on your Samsung TV.
    Use the remote control to select the menu and open the Network item.
    Go to "Network Status."
    And select the IP settings item.
    Change your DNS settings so that you can enter them manually.
    Now you need to enter the DNS server address of your VPN service.
    Confirm with "OK".
    Turn off the TV and turn it on again.

But what is th DNS server of Avast VPN?

Hi,

Avast SecureLine VPN only works on Smart TVs with Android as the operating system.
This is the process you would follow https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/pair-secureline-vpn/ (if you can download the app from the Google Play Store and install it on your smart tv)

Avast SecureLine VPN cannot be used any other way.
