How to Get Unbanned from Omegle? [TUTORIAL]

We can be banned from Omegle if we use it the wrong way. And obviously, we can't access it anymore, even if we change our browser. No worries though! It is possible to get unbanned from Omegle.

I won't lie to you, it's hard. But the method I'm going to show you is guaranteed to get you through.

Here is a video tutorial I did with all the steps:

Before I get into the details of how to get unbanned, I'd like to explain which bad behavior leads to a ban and how banning works on Omegle.

Ban on Omegle

Omegle is a live video chat site that has been around since 2009. There is no need to register and it is anonymous. This site is totally open to everyone, and to ensure the friendliness of the community, there are certain rules to respect

If these conditions are not respected by users, they are blocked from accessing Omegle. Their internet connection is then blacklisted by Omegle and they can't return to it even if they switch devices.

One of the only ways to unban Omegle is to get a new IP address by using a VPN connection.

What leads to a ban on Omegle?

There is always a reason for an Omegle ban. The causes of banning on Omegle are many and seemingly subtle things like listening to music in the background can lead to a ban.

This can lead to a ban: 

  • Listening copyright music in the background
  • Have a racist, hateful, or sexist statement
  • Show a virtual cam
  • Be naked
  • You have been "skipped" too often
  • … … and so on and so forth!

Omegle's banning system

Once you are banned, Omegle's system will "blacklist" your Internet connection and IP address.

You can be banned from 7 days to 4 months and you can also be banned for life. If you are connected to WiFi of your internet service provider, then all your devices will not be able to access Omegle. A simple solution can be to connect to it with 4G but you need to have a good data plan!

To be more precise, when Omegle blacklists your internet connection, it will enter your IP address (the "identifier" of your internet connection) into its blocking log. 

That's why the most effective option is to change your IP address with a VPN service (or by rebooting your internet box if you have a dynamic IP address). In this tutorial, I will show you how to use ExpressVPN to get rid of the Omegle ban.

With their 30-day money-back guarantee, you can test their 3,000 servers in over 90 countries without any risk. Just one account lets you use ExpressVPN on five devices at the same time. Their 24-hour support can even let you know which server to use to unblock Omegle.

Method 1 - 4 Steps to get Unbanned from Omegle with a VPN 

In this section, I'll explain to you in pictures how you can stop being banned by Omegle using ExpressVPN.

Step 1: Get ExpressVPN and launch it on any device (the technique works on all devices). The interface will look like this (I am on a computer):

Step 2: Let's connect to an ExpressVPN server now. Click the location button to display the list of servers. 

ExpressVPN Servers

Omegle is on the hunt for VPN provider servers and to find one that works, the best way is to send a message to support (here on the bottom right) asking them which server is currently working for Omegle. You'll get an answer within minutes.

I was advised by the support person to use a server located in Georgia. Therefore, I found it in the list and double-clicked to connect.

Step 3: Go and enjoy video chat!

You won't get any more ban messages and everything will work as usual. If this is not the case, tell ExpressVPN support that the server is not working and they will point you to another server not blocked by Omegle.

Step 4: Close Omegle and disconnect ExpressVPN. Simply click the round connect/disconnect button to disconnect ExpressVPN. 

It will disconnect in a few seconds and you will have your original IP address back. And if you want to go back to Omegle, you'll have to reconnect to ExpressVPN. 

Method 2 - Another solution to bypass Omegle's ban

This solution is only suitable for users who have a subscription to a dynamic IP internet router.

Your IP address can change if you have a dynamic IP address. To know if you have a dynamic IP address is very simple:

  1. Go to an IP address detection website like
find your ip address
  1. Note down your IP address
  2. Restart your internet router
  3. When it has restarted properly, go back to the IP address detection site and check if the IP address that is displayed has changed. If it has changed, then you can try going back to Omegle and maybe it will work.

Method 3 - Change connection location

This method may not be the most convenient, but it will definitely work. As we've seen, changing the IP address makes Omegle not recognize us anymore. To be able to use Omegle again as a user and meet a stranger, you can change your environment and your Internet traffic connection. But if you use an email address with Omegle, be sure to use another one.

So you can go to a coffee shop, a library, or a friend's house... The goal is to change the Internet connection which will also change our IP address. You can also, if your mobile package allows it, share a connection to your computer which will change its IP address. You must however make sure you have enough Internet data to be able to do this trick.


🧐 Which VPN works for Omegle?

I recommend ExpressVPN because Omegle (like Netflix) hunts for VPN servers and Express VPN has servers that are not blocked by Omegle. ExpressVPN is one of the best VPN services and you can get their VPN app on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iPhone, iPad...

🙅 Why did Omegle ban me?

If you have not followed Omegle's terms and conditions, your account may have been banned. The most common reason for this is being "skipped" too often by other Omegle users. 

Another case: a person with hateful actions or speech will obviously get banned quickly. Even playing copyright music in the background of your webcam can get you banned from the platform. You can find more reasons for banning in my article.

⏰ How long do bans last on Omegle?

It is impossible to know how long a ban can last. As I said above, you can be blacklisted from Omegle for 1 week or even worse… a few months!

🤔 Omegle unban: is there any free VPN service that works to get unbanned?

A free VPN service such as TunnelBear or Hotspot Shield cannot unblock Omegle. Even a premium Virtual Private Network like NordVPN or Private Internet Access hardly manages to unblock Omegle. That's why I recommend ExpressVPN which is the only one that allowed me to access Omegle when I was blocked. Free VPNs do not have enough servers and are all blocked by Omegle.

🔎 Why am I banned from Omegle even though I've never used it?

There is a good chance that someone on your network has used Omegle if you never used it before and receive the message "You have been banned from Omegle due to possible terms of service violations by you.". If someone else used your IP address to access Omegle, they may have been banned for violating the terms of service. The ban would apply to your IP address, which would prevent you from accessing the site even if you have never used it before.


The two solutions we've seen so far work wonderfully to get around the ban on Omegle

In the case of method 1 with ExpressVPN, I strongly encourage you to send a message to support to find out which vpn server is currently working with Omegle. This is much faster than testing all the servers by yourself (as there are hundreds and hundreds of them).

To follow method 2, your internet router must have a dynamic IP address, which is not the case for everyone. But if this is your case, then you are lucky because you have a fatal weapon against banning!
