Often, we would like to download applications for Android, but Play Store forbids us by notifying that this or that application cannot be downloaded in our region. To this, we can still find an effective solution.
Turn off localization
In general, the Smartphone has a GPS which systematically prevents access to certain applications. Thus, to prevent Google from finding us, we must deactivate the device’s GPS: Settings, Location then Deactivate. On some devices, you may be forced to go through Settings and Security.
Creation of a new account
Once the location is deactivated, we must create a new Google account where there is no credit card number. After the creation of the new Gmail account, it is necessary to add it to the Smartphone from: Settings and Accounts. You must check the “Remind me later” box when we are asked to save a payment type.
We can now install a VPN. For those who have no idea what it is, this is a tool that creates a private network giving us access to a remote terminal. Thus, we escape certain blockages such as firewalls. With this tool, we can fool Google, because VPN gives us a different location that allows us to download the applications we want.
Among the VPN tools, you can choose:
- iNinja VPN: The best VPN services for 2020 | Free VPN and Unlimited Bandwidth each user.
- Tunnel Bear: Free subscription, up to 500 Mb / month or 1 GB (if sending a Tweet)
- One-click VPN: Free VPN, no traffic limits and 17 countries covered
- Hideman VPN: Free VPN, 16 countries covered and 5 hrs/week
- Droid VPN: Free VPN, registration required, up to 100MB / day and need to root the smartphone
Before launching the VPN after its installation, we must first go to Settings and Application. Then we select the VPN application and erase the data. If you want to know more read the review of VPN services on the TechBullion.
When it is done, we launch the application which will ask us to choose a country to relocate. If you don’t know which country to choose, your best bet is to go with the United States.
Such manipulations allow us to have geo-blocked applications. Thus, we will always go through PlayStore and we will avoid using its sites which are not always reliable.
