The PUBG Mobile forums are filled with questions like “Will my account get banned for using VPN?”, “Is using VPN Tricks safe?”, “Will PUBG Mobile Ban me for using VPN?” and hundreds of similar questions. Also, many people stated that “My Account got banned after using VPN”, “PUBG Mobile permanently banned my account for playing on VPN” and many more.
After reading so far you must be panicked and would be hating yourself for using the alluring VPN Tricks. Be calm and read the quoted texts all over again. If you read carefully you will know the difference between the quoted text highlighted in orange and red. If you still do not know what I’m talking about then keep reading.
The first group of people that are highlighted in Orange have been asking whether their accounts will get banned after using the VPN Tricks. While the other group of people highlighted in Red have stated that their accounts has already been banned for playing PUBG Mobile while being connected to VPN. There is a huge difference.
Now let us have a look at what PUBG Mobile Terms Of Service states about the use of VPN with PUBG Mobile.
We are not responsible for and we do not endorse, support or grantee the quality, reliability or suitability of any content, software, plug-ins, tools or data supplied by third parties for use in connection with the Licensed items. Any reliance on or use of such content, software, tools, plug-ins or data is at your own risk.
Yes I know you would not be reading the full context so I have simplified it for you. According to them, If you use any Third Party Application, Plugin, Tools or any other software with PUBG Mobile that is not licensed by them, might get your account banned if detected by the system.
If we simplify it even further then we can conclude that using any VPN application to get rewards and other cool stuff from around the world is not a violation of PUBG Mobile Terms of Service. But, if you are using any VPN application to connect to other side of the World to play matches and getting matched with people from the other regions then that will be an offense and will surely get your PUBG Mobile account banned.
We even confirmed the same by the Moderator of the Official PUBG Mobile Subreddit @gotfondue .
He stated that:
The use of a VPN is not a violation of the PUBG Mobile Terms of Service. However he mentioned NEVER to play while being on a VPN as it might trigger the use of a Third Party Application Ban. So this ends the discussion if you will get banned or not from using a VPN.
Now it is entirely clear that you will not be banned for using any VPN Tricks to get Free Rewards from other regions. But you must keep in mind NOT to start any match while being connected to other location using VPN or you might get your PUBG Mobile Account Banned.
But Why PUBG Mobile Will Ban Your Account for Playing on a VPN?
The answer to this question is quite simple. If you are playing PUBG Mobile from the very beginning or even from the last season then you must have came across Hackers in at least one match. Hackers use Third Party Applications to trigger various scripts which provide them the powers of a Superhero. They can see through walls, kill through walls, can use any gun without recoil, have a 100% hit rate, can run and drive at insanely high speeds and what not. Below is the game play of a Chinese Hacker that I came across on Asia Server while playing Duo with my friend.
Now coming back to our question that why PUBG Mobile does not care if we use any VPN application and get free rewards from other regions, whereas ban us for playing while being connected to another region using VPN. The answer is to prevent the use of Hack Applications.
The PUBG Mobile Hack Detection System is programmed in such a way that whenever a player uses any third party application be it any VPN, plugin, tool or any hack application and starts a match. This triggers the Hack Detection System and that detection system considers it as a cheating application and bans the user ignoring the fact that the third party application could also be a VPN. Because, even if a hacker is using hack he will need to enter a match to play and without entering the match the hack is of no use.
In other words, not only VPN you can use any Third Party Application like Hack Applications, Plugins and other tools without getting banned only if you DO NOT START THE MATCH. Although we strictly advise you not to try out any Hack Application out of curiosity even in the PUBG Mobile Lobby.
Hope your doubt about the use of VPN application with PUBG Mobile has been cleared once and for all.
