How to change App Store region on iOS

If you are unable to find Surfshark on the App Store of your iOS device, or if a disclaimer pops up saying that Surfshark is unavailable in your region - don't worry!

With this guide you will be able to change the App Store region from restrictive, that does not support Surfshark - China, Saudi Arabia and other VPN unfriendly regions, to a region that supports Surfshark and will let you install our application to your device.

Follow the steps below to change the region to United States.

  1. Launch Settings from your Home screen.
  2. Tap on iTunes & App Store.
  3. Tap on Apple ID.
  4. Tap View Apple ID.
  5. Authenticate with Password or Touch ID, if required.
  6. Tap on Country/Region.
  7. Choose United States.
  8. Tap on Next.
  9. Tap on Agree to consent to the terms and conditions.
  10. Enter or skip the payment details by selecting 'None'.
    You can use a random name, Street, City and Phone number, but you must match State and Zip code correctly, so use:
    State AK - Alaska
    Zip 99922
  11. Tap Next.

Your App Store region is now United States! You will be able to download Surfshark on your iOS device.
