Listen to Pandora Anywhere Without a Using a Proxy

International users are frequently disappointed to find US-based services behind restrictive firewalls; Pandora is no exception to the long list of off-limits services. This clever hack takes advantage of a loophole to allow international access.

What loophole? As they document over at Digital Inspiration, Pandora seems to skip the IP location check for requests coming in through HTTPS. You simply need to install an extension for your web browser that enforces HTTPS (such as HTTPS Everywhere for Firefox and HTTPS Everywhere for Chrome). Install them, open Pandora, and you’re in business.
