How does a VPN unblock Messenger?

If you’re somewhere that blocks Facebook Messenger, you won’t be able to sign in to Facebook or send messages.

ExpressVPN hides your IP address and replaces it with that of a server in a country where Messenger is available, so you can start chatting with your friends online right away.

ExpressVPN also encrypts your web traffic so hackers, government agencies, and other third parties can’t read it. That means you can use Facebook Messenger and other apps with privacy and freedom.
