If ExpressVPN is not available in your country’s App Store, you can download it by changing your App Store’s location. In this guide, we will change the App Store location to the United States.

This guide will show you two ways to change your App Store location: By changing your existing Apple ID’s location, or creating a new Apple ID with a different location. If you would like to keep the App Store location of your existing Apple ID unchanged, you will need to create a new Apple ID for the new location.

Frequently asked questions

After downloading ExpressVPN, can I switch back to my original Apple ID?

Yes. However, once you have downloaded ExpressVPN on your device, the app will work regardless of the country your Apple ID is associated with.

How do I keep ExpressVPN updated?

To update any iOS app, you must use the same Apple ID you used to download the app.

If you switched back to your original Apple ID after downloading ExpressVPN with a new Apple ID, you will need to sign in to your new Apple ID for the ExpressVPN app updates.
