How to unblock Facebook
Connecting from somewhere that won’t let you access Facebook? Find out how you can use a VPN to access the world’s leading social media site quickly, easily and securely from wherever you are.
Unblock Facebook with a VPN
Facebook is accessible to billions of people across the world, but there are times when you won’t be able to access the site. This is usually for one of three main reasons:
- You are connecting from a country that blocks Facebook and other social media sites
- You are connecting from a network that blocks Facebook for security reasons
- You are working in an institution that doesn’t allow access to Facebook
Users expect to be able to access Facebook from anywhere so that they can post pictures, stay up-to-date with friends, comment on posts and videos and find out what’s happening around them.
If Facebook is blocked where you are, you lose access to a vital part of your friend-and-family network.
Using a VPN is a safe, easy way to connect to Facebook if you're in a location where it's blocked.
How easy is it to use a VPN?
Getting access to a VPN is almost as easy as signing up to Facebook. It’s a simple 3-step process:
- Sign Up to your chosen package
- Follow the instructions on the email we send you to download our apps
- Connect to one of our server locations to unblock Facebook!
Once you have ExpressVPN downloaded onto your device, you just open up the app and connect to the server that’s best for you.
That means you can chat in real-time using Facebook Messenger, so that you can make arrangements, catch up with the news, contribute to group discussions and keep in touch with the latest developments in your friendship groups. You can also see what’s trending in news, fashion, music, celebrity gossip and much more.
We've designed our apps to be easy enough for anybody to use. They work on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Routers, and Linux, and we have configurations for manual setup on other devices, as well.
After you've signed up, you'll be able to download our apps onto your devices. Also, you can connect to our servers from up to three devices at a time.
Is it OK to use a VPN?
Using a VPN is perfectly legitimate – millions of people around the world access the internet via a VPN every day. VPN networks are used by businesses to keep sensitive business data secure, and consumers use VPNs all the time to access censored sites like Facebook.
Once you’ve got VPN access, it’s not just Facebook that is available to you around the world. You can also access other censored sites like Google, Gmail, YouTube, and Twitter.
