We talk about Genshin Impact private servers and answer the lingering question of whether they are real or fake while sharing details on Genshin Impact mods and more.
Are Genshin Impact Private Servers Real Or Fake?

Genshin Impact Private Server is a community project where some of the modders are attempting to make the game offline. Or try to inject a mod that is capable of running the game on third-party private servers with every existing resource, character, weapons, and other things unlocked. 

So far, no one has been able to make a stable and working version of the Genshin Impact private servers build. Still, we often find some videos and websites sharing Genshin Impact private server's downloadable files—making the community question - are Genshin Impact private servers real or fake?

In short, yeah! Genshin Impact private servers are fake. The videos and websites offering the download links for Genshin Impact private servers either share the normal APKs or PC Client by adding the term private servers. Or, they share an injectable .exe file that does nothing but infects your system with viruses.

While we haven't seen accounts get banned for using the Genshin Impact ReShade mod, we still don't recommend players altering the game files in any manner while logged in with your primary Genshin Impact account. 

Some players have reported that they got banned for using some of the fake Genshin Impact private server files. So, it's better not to experiment with your primary account. Instead, you can make an extra account and use it to install mods. So that, even if you get banned. It won't affect your main account.
