Why unblock Snapchat with a VPN

Websites and services are blocked by denying users access based on their IP address. When you connect to the internet from college, you are assigned the general IP address of the school’s network, which can have certain access restrictions.

A VPN is a private tunnel between your device and the internet. Your VPN app encrypts all data traveling to and from your system so that third parties can’t read it. It also hides your IP address, letting you bypass related restrictions and unblocking Snapchat along with other programs.

Where is Snapchat blocked?

Some regions, the Middle East in particular, have a rocky relationship with Snapchat. For example, the app was blocked in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the UAE in 2017. Even after the ban was eventually lifted, Snapchat continues to be on shaky ground — in April 2020, the app’s video and voice calling functions were once again blocked in the UAE.

Many universities and colleges also block access to Snapchat on their Wi-Fi networks, together with other social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. This is often done to reduce distractions and help people stay focused on their tasks.
