One of the benefits of Virtual Private Network (VPN) is that it allows anyone to change the IP address from one country to another. This means if you change your IP address to the USA, the VPN will hide your main IP address and it will be showing that you are in the USA. This works the same based on the country you selected, it hides your current IP address location and shows the IP address of the VPN you selected.
