I switched my location but YouTube is still limited due to geo-restrictions. What can I do?

Geo-restricted sites can use various data to recognize your real location such as IP tracking and if you've visited the site before, using cookies on your device. ZenMate allows you to bypass some of these methods by providing a different IP address in the corresponding country.

If you still cannot access YouTube...

...the problem might be caused by your previously stored YouTube settings, which don't automatically change when you switch your location using ZenMate. Make sure that you are using both the latest version of your browser and the latest ZenMate version.

There are two possible ways to solve this:

Change my location on YouTube

New view

  1. Go to your account icon 

  2. Click Location.

  3. In the drop-down menu, select the location you’d like to use. Don't worry, the videos will remain in their original language.
