Are you living in Nigeria and you want to use a US number? I will be teaching you all the possible and easiest ways on how to get the USA number in Nigeria without having to leave the comfort of your house or paying a dime. It’s no news that people used to pay and are still paying for this service. Before I get started, I want to buttress the fact that this article is by no means intended to help people commit crimes in any capacity.

It is mainly for people with legit businesses that need it for communications with clients in the USA, or to verify their PayPal accounts and also for people that have family members in the USA and want to communicate freely with them at no cost.


If you belong to any of these categories, please feel free to continue.

The most interesting part of this is that your Nigerian phone number will be linked to the USA number and you can hand out any of both numbers and still receive calls like you’re two different people.

Sounds like magic right?

I know too.

You need to have the following first:

  • A mobile phone.
  • Stable internet connection.
  • VPN.
  • The guidelines in this article.

What is a VPN?

VPN is an acronym for Virtual Private Network.

It encrypts and changes your IP address to your selected IP address or server.

In layman words, it is used to create an illusion that you are in a completely different place, city or country at that moment.

Now I’m sure that some of you are wondering why you need a VPN.

Don’t wonder too much, let me explain.

A VPN is needed because the majority of these apps only work for people in the USA.

And since you’re most definitely not in the USA at this moment, you need to a VPN to do the job for you.

You also need to ensure that you turn it on to avoid any malfunction.

How to Install a VPN

This is for the benefit of those that didn’t know what a VPN was until now.

I will also be guiding you on how to install a VPN, although most apps these days automatically set it up for you.

But here’s a guide in case you need to do it manually.

1. For iOS

  • First, go into your phone settings and select General.
  • Scroll down and click on VPN (your device will show you if you are already connected to a VPN).
  • Then select Add VPN Configuration, and after that, click on Type to choose the security protocol. (Your app will provide the guidelines on what to do).
  • Return to the Add configuration screen, where you will be required to add the VPN’s description, server and also the remote and local ID.
  • Enter your username and password or make use of proxy if you so desire.
  • Click on “Done”, and you will be taken back to the VPN screen. Just turn the status ON, and you are finished.

2. For Android

  • Go to your phone settings, Network& Internet, Advanced, and Then VPN.
  • Or just search for VPN in settings and press ADD.
  • Next, create your profile.
  • Type in the VPN name, Type, and Server address.
  • Hit the save button.
  • You will then be brought back to the VPN screen, where you should now be seeing your VPN name.
  • Click on it, and enter your name and password.
  • Click on Connect.
  • Fill in the name, Type, server address and also your username, and password.
  • Save, and you’re done!
