How to access Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Instagram, and any other region-locked apps and websites on Android
Whether you want to encrypt your internet traffic or simply want to access your favorite services that you actually pay for, the why's of a VPN are many. In case this is the first time you hear about VPN, we recently did a little piece on it that you may want to read. In short, a VPN is a virtual private network that allows you to route your device's traffic through another (usually a server) – even one potentially thousands of miles away from your current location. As mentioned, this allows you to access websites and apps that you wouldn't otherwise be able to, even if you pay for them on a monthly basis (say, you're on a vacation and want to watch some Netflix).

Luckily for all of us, there's no shortage of VPN services, both free and paid. As you can imagine, the second breed is usually far superior in terms of reliability, speeds and security, but the truth is that settling for one means having a go through a number of them. That's because different companies will provide different levels of quality depending on your location. Today, we'll show you how you can use an Android VPN app to access region-locked apps and websites (Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Instagram, etc) – it's dead-simple to use and requires no manual setup whatsoever.

Jump right in.

It should not need to be rooted -- VPN functionality is built into Android. Sadly, the one area of VPNing where you DO need to be rooted is when you're trying to tether from phone to tablet... it used to work via Bluetooth, but now that's mostly broken. :(
