How to use VPNCity on Xbox One

Why do you need VPNCity on Xbox One?


For majority of Xbox One users, a VPN is needed to bypass restrictions on location and unlocking content on certain websites. With a VPN, content that is generally restricted because of your location will then be available to you; this includes games, apps, and videos too!
