How to Setup KeepSolid SmartDNS for PlayStation 4?

Important notes before you start changing DNS settings on PS4

To setup any US application on your PlayStation 4, you have to use the US PSN account. After creating the US PSN account, you should use it with the PlayStation Store, find the app you need, and download it. If you already have the US app installed, we recommend you to reset settings in this app. To do so, please hold down Start and Select while opening the app.

Before you start making any changes on your PlayStation 4, our team highly recommends you to save your original DNS settings. You’ll need them in case if you want to switch back to the original settings. 

To unblock streaming services with our KeepSolid SmartDNS app, you have to register your IP address. Check out how to manage your IP address in the KeepSolid SmartDNS App and your KeepSolid User Office here

Also, we recommend you to block Google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) on your router, otherwise you may not be able to bypass geo-restrictions and access the desired content.
