# Tips to use your Oculus Quest in a VPN network
# New Method
The Oculus Quest 2 with the v29 firmware update from Oculus enables the use of arbitrary APK files (Android apps) to be used on the device. This means that you can sideload / install the APK file of your favorite VPN to the device, log in, and use as if you would for an Android device. Note that your VPN provider must offer an APK for this to work. We have seen it work properly with NordVPN, ExpressVPN, Cisco AnyConnect, and several others.
