Can’t connect to NETFLIX

Issue: I'm trying to watch Netflix, but the website or application knows that I'm using a VPN. 
Before we troubleshoot, please verify the following: 
  • Access to Netflix is a Hotspot Shield Premium feature. Make sure you’re subscribed and logged in so that you can select Virtual Locations. If you don’t have a Premium account, select one here.
  • Check if youre signed into your Premium account. To do this, open the app, select the 3 horizontal lines near the top left corner of the screen, and go to “Account.
