How to Access your Psn Account From Any Country
The PlayStation Network is no longer accessible in some countries. This happens because the local ISP that your PlayStation Network account uses to connect to the world has been blocked. PSN identification and login are performed through an encrypted protocol by the PlayStation Network server. PSN lookups are done using your personal IP address. This means that a partial IP address, such as 192.168.1.2 is not enough to identify you and your account, while 220.127.116.11 is more likely not to be you since we presume that a single person with such a range of IPs would not be frequenting the PlayStation Network.
Before you can access your account from an ISP that has been blocked, you must first identify your country, region and ISP to establish your Internet connection. To do this, it is best you obtain a static IP address from a local ISP. You can contact your ISP for the required information. The PSN Terms of Service do state that you should not use an unsecured network to access the PlayStation Network.
You can also get a static IP address from a public WIFI hotspot and then configure your PS3 to use that connection. Due to the fact that they are public and unsecured, such networks may be blocked from time-to-time. There have been instances where users have experienced trouble logging in to their PSN account after a location change, something which can be solved by changing their IP address.
My personal experience with trying to access PlayStation Network in my country since the blocks were implemented was that I could not get the PSN to connect at all. However, after a quick search on Google with some questions, I discovered that there are enough people who are struggling in similar situations and have found workarounds to access the PSN from their blocked locations.
How a VPN Can Help You Unblcok Playstation Network
If you are a Sony Online Entertainment (SEO) customer, most probably you’ll have noticed that recently the PlayStation Network was blocked in various countries. If you want to access your PSN account, then you need to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service. These services provide the ability to “spoof” your IP address, which is something that allows you to hide your location when accessing the Internet. Most of these services are paid, but there are ways to get the PSN access for free.
The best free VPN service provider is Unblock-Us. Based in the United States, this provider has servers all over the world, and it offers very fast speeds. They offer a 7 day money back guarantee and no speed limit. The VPN service also works on all platforms, including Android, iPhone and iPad. In addition to being fast, it’s also very easy to use with a simple interface. The only downside to its free service is the lack of a kill switch.
Another option for offline access to the PSN is BlueVPN. On this provider’s website, you can purchase a ticket for two weeks of unlimited use. By using this VPN service, you can unblock your console and gain access to your account from anywhere in the world. The streaming quality is good, but it also lacks a kill switch. The price range of their service is $3-$8 per month depending on how long you want to use it for.
