Proxies have been long known for being able to hide your online identity, which makes them good candidates against Stadia’s country detection filter.
Most users prefer proxies because they’re very easy to find, there’s a lot of them out there, and most importantly, they’re free.
On the other hand, what makes proxies popular is the very thing that brings their downfall, and let us tell you why.
Since they’re so popular among users (because they’re free), they also tend to get overcrowded in no time.
Considering that cloud gaming platforms such as Stadia require steady, fast connections to operate, you may want to reconsider.
This means that you should either pay for a private proxy server or don’t use proxy servers at all.
Unfortunately, free VPNs carry a stigma due to various data-logging scandals. So it’s easy to see why not all free VPNs are trustworthy.
However, as far as bypassing the Stadia not available in my region limitation, free VPNs seem to do a solid job.
For instance, we used Opera VPN to see if we could access Stadia and we succeeded.
So you could use a free VPN to access Stadia from countries where it’s not available, as long as you understand that free VPNs may not be as careful with your data as their paid counterparts.
To wrap things up, if you’re sad about Stadia not being available in your region, we got you covered.
There are many methods you could use to bypass this limitation, and choosing the best one depends strictly on your needs.
If you’re also worried about your privacy/security, we wholeheartedly recommend using a VPN.
On the other hand, if security and privacy are of no concern to you (bad), you could stick to some of the other alternatives on our list.
