Gaining Access to More Apps

A VPN (Virtual private network) allows the user to surf the internet without being detected. This means nobody can track your location or know how you are accessing the Internet. For instance, if you are using a Virtual Private Network in Greece, you can still get access to websites that are specific to India.

But in the Apple store, the VPN restrict the app from detecting your location. To counter this, you can change your country without adding an address and payment method that trace back to the chosen country. After that, you can gain access to apps that were previously unavailable to you.
