Virtually teleport to anywhere in the world with a VPN
VPNs are pretty amazing. They’re a great tool to use to enhance your cybersecurity. They ensure your data privacy and online preferences are kept anonymous. And they also have the capacity to change your location to almost anywhere you desire. Even if this sounds taken out of a Sci-Fi novel, VPNs make virtual teleportation possible.
How does a VPN change location?
Geo-spoofing, or the ability to change location to somewhere entirely different, is a fairly simple process – and is made possible by replacing your IP address. You see, your real IP address, the one given to you by your internet service provider, is like your online ID. It contains information about your ISP provider, as well as the country, city, and area you’re in. When you send a connection request to a website you want to access, it first interprets the information contained inside your IP. If no restrictions are in place, you’ll be able to access its content. However, if the website uses geo-restrictions, you’ll get a message telling you that the content you wish to access is unavailable in your region.
So, long story short, if you connect to a server from a different country, your new IP address will match the one the server you’re connected to.
The perks of changing your location with a VPN
Access geo-blocked content
Almost all online content platforms resort to some geo-restrictions. While some use this measure to limit access to the content available, others take it to extreme and only offer access for people from a certain region. With a VPN by your side, you can unblock content and all these limitations disappear.
Bypass government restrictions
Private-owned websites are not the only ones who can decide what you can and cannot access online. Restrictive governments such as the ones from China, Russia, or Iran (to name a few) are notorious for blocking their citizens’ access to websites that don’t seem to follow their agenda. In this case, too, a virtual private network can help you escape these restrictions and regain your online freedom.
Online data measuring and preference tracking are getting out of hand. If you’re tired of having your searches follow you around the internet, constantly shifting between IP address is something that can take that burden off your shoulders.
How to pick the best VPN location changer
One of the first things to look for when picking a VPN that will help you hide your real IP address and change your location is a service with a good variety of server areas. As a reference point, CyberGhost has its 7100+ VPN servers spread out across 91 different countries, which gives you the best location-changing variety in the VPN industry.
Plus, our specially optimized streaming servers are guaranteed to help you access loads of previously unavailable content from anywhere in the world.

There are two ways to change your IP address location by using a router - one is simple as it gets, while the other requires a bit more effort.
So, the first option would be to purchase a router that comes with CyberGhost VPN preinstalled.
The other option would have you configure your VPN router yourself. Be advised, though! Not all routers offer VPN support and the process could be a bit overwhelming for beginners. If you wish to attempt to configure your own VPN router, you can do so by following our step-by-step guide.
CyberGhost VPN goes above and beyond just letting you change location so you can browse the internet freely and anonymously. Whenever you’re using our app, your entire internet connection will enjoy enhanced online data protection thanks to our 256-bit AES encryption, DNS leak protection, and internet killswitch.
