Play PUBG Mobile in Restricted Regions

1. To play PUBG Mobile in restricted regions, you need to download a VPN for your Android or iOS device. I would recommend ProtonVPN as it offers servers from three major regions free of charge.

2. Now, connect the VPN to the US server. You can also connect to the Japan server, but I got a reasonably decent ping while connected to a US server.

So that is how you can play PUBG Mobile in restricted regions without facing errors such as “Error code:restrict-area”.

    It’s a pretty useless way to play the game. Just download the Korean PUBG from Taptap and play it. 600ms are you kidding me ?

  • Ramees says:

    Pls help me. My internet is so slow. I am in India and i get this error. I liked your method but i had like 120 ms when this problem was not available because of my bad internet connection. After using this VPN, i get like 800-968 ms ping. Pls recommend me a better vpn which wouldnt increase my ping. Pls. ( I am OK with paid VPN’s as i will install it freely from chrome by coding….)
    Pls help. Pls help. Pls…….

    Even though the gane is banned you are promoting it and giving illegal ways to play it. Find another good ways to earn money.
