If you can’t download or upgrade the PandaPow VPN app from your country’s App Store, you can still get the app by (1) creating a new Apple ID with another email address and (2) setting your App Store country to one where the app is available. For example, you can follow the steps below to switch to the U.S. App Store.
Note: You can only update the PandaPow for iOS app when you are signed in to the same Apple ID you used to download it. We highly recommend you to update your PandaPow apps whenever new versions are available.
*** If you downloaded the PandaPow VPN for iOS from an App Store in which the app is no longer available, we highly recommend that you remove the app from your device and download it again from another App Store so that you can continue to receive critical app updates. ***

Questions and answers
Do I need to switch App Stores when I want to use my other apps?
While you do not need to switch App Stores to use apps already on your device, you will not be able to update an app if you are not in the country where you bought the app. This is because updates are administered from the App Store where the app was purchased, and not every country’s App Store has a version of the app you are using.
Before switching App Stores, make sure you do not have any unspent store credit on your Apple ID.
Can I use PandaPow VPN when I am logged in to my regular App Store account?
Yes! PandaPow VPN can be used no matter where you are in the world.
In order to access the App Store of a different country, simply connect to an PandaPow VPN server from that country before changing your App Store location.
