    Hi FrostyGreenacre,

    Thanks for your post. There are no rules against the use of a VPN, this can be an effective way to protect your identity online. Please note, if the VPN you are using is from another country, you may experience issues with region compatibility and matchmaking
    online so it's better to use a VPN from the country where you reside.

    Though the Xbox One does not support VPN integration, if you've set up a VPN service for your network, the console should respond normally.

    For more information on what conduct is acceptable on Xbox Live, check out our

    Xbox Code of Conduct
    .

    I hope this information helps.

    I'm not aware of any specific rule regarding the use of a VPN.

    A VPN usually creates an encrypted point to point tunneled connection between a host and a user. One major thing to consider when using a VPN with gaming systems is the extra overhead in the network to encrypt and decrypt your network packets, which will
    introduce latency and cause lagging issues.

    IP adress

    Hi there xCANDYKIDx,

    Sadly as a qualified network technician it is not possible to hide your IP address or MAC address from any hardware that is used connecting to the internet service providers and the web.

    That said a VPN would limit those from gaining access to your information so easily another way to make sure your information is protected ensure you only put the information you want others to see about you etc it will limit any information gathering possible.

    I am sorry your having these concerns while playing online, rest assured xbox is paramount in protecting its players.

    Kind Regards

    Alec

    How do you stop someone who's already DDosing ur console

    "After you blocked the hacker from contacting you, you need to change your IP address. This is done by unplugging your modem/router gateway for about a minute. After your modem re-connects to your Internet Provider,
    you should have gotten a new IP address. "

    This is only is true if the autonomous system they are within has not assigned a static IP address - thus being dynamically assigned. However, if the IP address is static, your Internet Service Provider will have to
    assign you a different one then you'd have to restart your device(s) - syncing the new publicly assigned IP. Furthermore, in regards to being able to stop a DDoS attack, you cannot - unless your bandwidth is > than the bandwidth being sent to that IP. What
    I would recommend is using DD-WRT and a well-known provider of a VPN (PIA, Nord) and use a PPTP (or whatever protocol you want to use) connection via DD-WRT to the VPN provider. If you use a server with bandwidth > than the bandwidth being sent you will not
    be affected, furthermore, it won't be your connection being attacked directly.

    TL;DR If your bandwidth is !> (not greater than) the bandwidth being sent you'll see an effect.

    All the best,
