To access Qobuz with Surfshark, subscribe to a Surfshark plan, download the VPN app, connect to a Qobuz-supported server, and sign up!
Plus, Surfshark has many servers in Qobuz-supported countries, such as France, the United States, New Zealand, and Australia, so you can easily find a working server.
Let’s further discuss how you can use Surfshark to unblock Qobuz.
How to Use Surfshark to Register for Qobuz?
- Download the Surfshark VPN app to your device. I’m using the Windows app for demonstration.
- Log into your Surfshark VPN app using your account credentials.
- Turn on the kill switch to safely sign up for a Qobuz account without getting any Qobuz proxy errors through an IP leak. Access it through Settings > VPN Settings > Kill Switch.
- Connect to a Qobuz-supported region. I used Paris as my go-to server.
- Sign up and register your Qobuz account to start streaming or downloading your favorite music without restrictions!
Surfshark Doesn’t Unblock Qobuz (Troubleshooting)
Surfshark is excellent for bypassing Qobuz blocks. However, Qobuz’s anti-VPN algorithms are picky, and you might have trouble registering for a Qobuz account.
If that happens, try any of the troubleshooting solutions below:
Switch Surfshark Servers
If you’re having trouble signing up for a Qobuz account, connect to a different server or server location. Chances are you connected to a server Qobuz already blocked.
Additionally, Qobuz is only available in a few selected regions globally, so ensure your server isn’t in a restricted country.
I registered with the Australian server and started streaming The Love of Boygenius and Memphis Listening Lab.
I also had great success using the Berlin, Germany server to sign up for the European version of Qobuz and the New York server for the American version.
Plus, music streaming was throttle-free, and I didn’t experience any playback issues.
Clear Browser or Qobuz App Cache
If you previously tried signing up for Qobuz without Surfshark to hide your IP, Qobuz might be tracking you through the browser or app cache.
By monitoring your previous sessions, Qobuz can discover that you’re using Surfshark to hide your real IP.
Use your browser’s Incognito Mode (Private Browsing) to bypass this.
Furthermore, you can take this a notch higher and use Surfshark’s Camouflage Mode (OpenVPN) to mask your VPN traffic as normal internet traffic.
If that doesn’t work, try clearing your browser’s cache or reinstall the Qobuz app.
I used the clear cache option since I was streaming Qobuz on my Chrome browser.
To clear the cache on Chrome, go to Settings > Privacy and security > Clear browsing data > Clear images & files > Clear data.
Turn Off GPS/Location Services on Your Device
This applies to you if you’re trying to register to Qobuz from a device with GPS location tracking. So, smartphones, tablets, iPads, etc.
Just turn off your GPS location tracking while using the Qobuz app.
Alternatively, using an Android phone, you can use Surfshark’s GPS override feature. Turn it on to automatically match your phone’s GPS location to your Surfshark server.
Additionally, ensure the Surfshark app is turned on and connected to a server before launching Qobuz. Conduct a DNS leak test to ensure your VPN connection is solid.
Restart Your Device
If you still have trouble registering Qobuz using a Surfshark server, try restarting your device. Restarting your device will clear any background apps, memory issues, glitches, and connectivity problems.
Most importantly, you’ll start your device fresh, translating to smoother performance and increased speed, which is necessary for the Surfshark VPN to function optimally.
