Can a VPN be used to prevent Discord malware?

Asked a year ago

Hi there. I regularly play games on Discord, and I have recently heard from another user that malware can be spread on the platform by users through file uploads. I therefore am looking for ways to guard against Discord malware. Does anyone know if a VPN works for this? TYIA.

Yes, using a VPN for your gaming experience while Discord is active will add another layer of protection against potential security risks. Experienced hackers & cybersecurity experts might be able to reveal a lot of your private information from your discord alone, leaving you exposed to privacy risks and malware attacks. Having a VPN will route your IP address through a secure server ensuring that all of your real data is protected from attacks. Using both a free and paid VPN will help, though consider going with a reputable VPN provider like NordVPN or SurfShark.
