How to Unblock Facebook Messenger with HotBot VPN

< All Topics

Facebook’s trademark messaging app, Messenger, has more than one billion users worldwide. It connects us to friends, family members, classmates and coworkers, and more. Users can chat with someone halfway around the globe or right down the street. However, the popular service may be blocked in some areas, such as in schools and offices, or in countries where censorship is highly prevalent. To unblock Facebook Messenger, just use HotBot VPN. Here’s how:

  • Step 1: Download our app on your device of choice and make an account.
  • Step 2: Pick any of our servers in a region where Messenger isn’t blocked. We have hundreds to choose from!
  • Step 3: Start chatting away!

Will a VPN encrypt my messages?

There are a number of reasons you may want your Messenger interactions to remain encrypted. Although Facebook itself helps keep your content safe, a VPN can add an extra level of security! If you use Facebook Messenger through a VPN, the virtual private network will create a secure tunnel between you and the person you are messaging. This prevents third-parties from seeing your conversation when you don’t want them to.

Can I unblock Facebook Messenger on any device, with HotBot VPN?

Currently, HotBot VPN is available as an app for Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS devices. As long as you have our VPN, as well as Facebook Messenger installed on a compatible device, our service can unblock it! Don’t see your device listed? Stay tuned as we add more to our lineup.
