Hey Kibby X!

To answer your question, no, using a VPN is not against the rules of RuneScape.

HOWEVER, if you're using a VPN in a way that changes your IP address or Country repeatedly in a short amount of time, it could possibly catch the attention of Jagex, as it might look like an account sharing or hijacking scenario.

To quote Mod Tyran from a post on Reddit:

"You won't get banned for using a VPN. It's not advisable, as they are indeed often used for malicious activity, but it's not something that will trigger a ban alone. Some players often have to use a VPN to connect if they're having issues connecting via normal methods."


Hope that clears things up!

Thank you so much! That answers my question perfectly. Although I do use multiple IP address's in my line of work. And yes they are in many different countries. I will from now on try to limit my RuneScape playing to a limited few.

Thank you for the response, Kibby X


No problem, my pleasure!

Happy 'Scaping :)
