If you’ve read the post on how to get American Netflix in Canada and reviewed the steps on how to set up HMA on your iPhone or iPad to watch American Netflix in Canada you might have been scared away at all the steps including the need to log into your HMA account online to copy down some numbers, a username and password.

- Tap “install now”
- Make sure it says “verified” in green then tap “done”
- Go to the setting on your iOS device
- Tap on the “VPN” option
- Select the VPN setup that your app installed for you (it will be the one with the long name and will say “HideMyAss Pro VPN” then toggle the “off” to “on”
- Verify that you are connected to the HMA VPN on your iPhone by checking to see if it says “VPN” in the bar across the top of your device
- You can verify that you’re virtually located in a different country by visiting http://geoip.hidemyass.com
That’s it! What used to involve copying IP addresses, special usernames and passwords is as simple as tapping the right spot on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch device.
