Apex Legends Mobile does not have an option to change servers unlike its PC and console counterpart.
The only way to change servers in Apex Legends Mobile is by using a VPN.
You should be careful when choosing VPNs as a lot of free options are not secure.

Apex Legends Mobile launched last month and players from all regions have been enjoying the game. While Apex Legends Mobile has managed to implement a lot of features from its PC and console counterparts , server selection does not seem to be available in the mobile game. You do not get to choose your server and have to rely on the game to put you in the right servers. It can often lead to laggy connections and an inconsistent gameplay experience.

Can you change servers in Apex Legends Mobile?

Currently, there is no way to change servers in-game. You have to rely on third-party software and a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to change your location if you want to shift to a different server.

Changing Servers in Apex Legends Mobile

VPN is short for Virtual Private Network. It routes your data through its servers and encrypts it before sending it to the website you are visiting. To put it simply, a VPN changes your IP address, making it seem like you’re located somewhere else rather than where you really are. For example, if you live in the Philippines and connect to the internet via a VPN server located in the US, Apex Legends Mobile will think you are in the US and connect you to a United States server.

You can download a VPN and use them to connect to a server of your choice. Free VPNs might not be the best option as they can pose serious security risks in some cases.

Some providers may not be safe and sell your personal info or your browsing history to the highest bidder. That’s why we recommend paying a few bucks per month for a reputable VPN service.

However, there are a few trustworthy VPN providers out there that offer free plans, but they have quite a few limits in place. Almost all of them give you a monthly data allowance and some even automatically select the location for you. Change your location via the VPN and you should be able to connect to an appropriate server of your choice when you launch Apex Legends.
