Default [Q] Going around screenlock for VPN

So, I have my One Max for a while now, and since I'm in Germany most YouTube videos are banned. Well, mostly music. That's why on PC I use a VPN, and I'd like to use it on my phone as well..but! You have to have a screen lock activated to set-up a VPN in the options..is there any way to make it work without having to use it? My phone barely leaves the house anyway, I got absolutely no need for locking it and it just inconveniences me.

Thanks for the help.
