Very helpful tutorial! I was disappointing and thought a work-around wouldn’t be available for awhile but glad you found a way! I have a few cousins who wanted to use IF in which they couldn’t haha

Thanks everyone! I am so glad that y’all think this tutorial is helpful!

Great tutorial!
@FLIGHT2 The removal of the app from the store has nothing to do with VPN. The only way to buy IF (if you didn’t purchase before) is to use a foreign account.

That’s somehow illegal in mainland China 🤫🙊 so if you saw someone from mainland surfing Google, Instagram, Twitter, they’re breaking the laws 😅

Hey, @VR-DOM .
The VPN doesn’t beat our laws.It’s just that we are not allowed to buy and sell VPNs, but most of them can still be used.
Btw,i don’t know why you use this emoji.
