With an explosion in easy-to-use chat apps offering free text messaging, voice, and video calls, the traditional SMS text message is on the verge of extinction. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows — access to chat apps might be restricted in certain places. You need a way to unblock WhatsApp and similar programs before you can start chatting.

How to unblock chat apps with a VPN

Since most content restrictions are enforced based on your IP address, hiding it is the simplest and most efficient way to unblock chat apps. You can easily do that with a virtual private network. In addition, VPNs create a secure encrypted tunnel between your device and the internet, protecting your online traffic and letting you access content from all over the world.

Why are chat apps blocked?

Several countries in the Middle East, South America, and Asia block features in many chat apps to limit freedom of expression or protect the revenues of traditional telecom companies. Video and voice calling allows people to connect over the internet instead of phone networks, avoiding expensive international or domestic rates.

Many universities and workplaces block chat apps, too. This is done for a variety of reasons, whether it’s to increase productivity or fight cyberbullying. However, this approach also prevents people from using these apps for educational and professional purposes. For example, with Kik unblocked, you could easily discuss university lectures with your fellow students.
