How to use Spotify outside the United States

You can set up Spotify and begin using it for free in just 10 minutes. Here's how:

  1. Download Tunnelbear and install it. This app enables you to fake your location when accessing the internet.
  2. Use Tunnelbear to set your location to the United States.
  3. Now open your browser and visit spotify.com to create your Spotify account.
    Do not use Facebook login. Use your email. You can connect Facebook later.
  4. Once your account is created, if you're on a Mac/PC, your Spotify desktop app download would have started. If you're on an Android phone, message me to get Spotify for your device.
  5. Install the Spotify app and login. Welcome to Spotify.
  6. Turn off Tunnelbear.

Now the thing with Spotify's free account is, you are allowed to use it outside the United States for one fortnight at a time. At the end of the fortnight, you will be asked to login again from the US. When this happens, just turn on Tunnelbear and login to Spotify. Once logged in, turn off Tunnelbear.


You can follow me on Spotify for some pretty good playlists.
