What is Omegle?
Launched in 2009, Omegle is a free online chat website that connects users randomly and anonymously.
While it originally started off as a messaging platform, it quickly introduced video conferencing and later “spy (question) mode,” which allows users to pitch a question to two other strangers and “spy” on their conversation. Omegle has also introduced “college student chat” for students with .edu emails to chat with their classmates and colleagues through the site.
Why is Omegle blocked?
There are a few ways you could get blocked from Omegle. You might live in a country or go to a school that blocks the website. It’s also possible that someone at your IP address—a roommate, relative, or just another customer at the cafe—has violated Omegle’s rules (knowingly or unknowingly) and has been temporarily banned by the service. Because Omegle doesn’t require users to log in to an account, users are identified and tracked by their IP addresses—so it is really your IP address that has been banned.
How does a VPN unblock Omegle?
A virtual private network like ExpressVPN takes all your internet traffic and sends it through an encrypted tunnel to a secure server location that acts like a location proxy for your device.
Once you connect to a VPN server, you get a different IP address. If your original IP address has been banned by Omegle, then the VPN will help you access Omegle as usual. If your country or school blocks Omegle, simply connect to a server in a country where the site is not blocked to gain access. You can even try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days to make sure it works for you.
