Unfortunately, many people have opened up about situations where they have been banned from Omegle for no reason. Some Omegle users may have been banned from the app because of issues like liking someone’s comment.
So, what should you do to get unbanned on Omegle? We have explained, in detail, ways you can restore your account. However, these methods depend on the length and type of ban, whether temporary or permanent.
Are Omegle bans permanent?
Depending on the reason behind your ban, Omegle bans are temporary and can last between seven days to four months. For example, you may be banned because of saying something offensive, someone reporting you, or being skipped too often by other users.

The main solution to unbanning yourself is changing your IP address using a VPN. You can install any VPN app from Google Play Store for Android devices or App Store for iOS devices.
The most recommended VPN (Virtual Private Network) apps include NordVPN, ExpressVPN, and CyberGhost. Once installed, you can launch it on your device and change your location.
The problem, however, is that VPNs result in lower network speed, which can be a problem when video chatting on Omegle. You may experience connection issues from time to time.
How to know if you are permanently banned on Omegle
When you are banned from Omegle, it will blacklist your internet connection and IP address. Therefore, your account is safe and can be used when you change your IP address or wait for the ban to be lifted.
How to get unbanned on Omegle without changing IP addresses
You may want to maintain the IP address on your network while using Omegle. Below are solutions you can use to unban yourself from Omegle and continue chatting:
1. Use proxy service
If you don’t want to change your IP address, you can use a proxy service that serves the same purpose as VPNs. The only difference is that they transmit traffic through an intermediary server and give you a different IP address on the internet. It is not like a VPN since it does not encrypt data.

2. Wait for the Omegle ban duration to end
Alternatively, you can wait for the ban to be lifted and take a break from chatting on Omegle.
You will automatically lift the ban by occasionally refreshing your IP address and can continue using the app. If the ban is still present, contact Omegle to unban you.
3. Change the internet connection
If you do not have the time or patience to wait for the ban to be lifted, you can connect to a different cellular or Wi-Fi network.
Each network is assigned a unique IP address, and when you connect to a different network, you can access Omegle and use it as normal.
4. Use ban-lifting web services.
There are web services designed to lift your ban on Omegle without changing your device’s IP address. Examples of these web services include Anonymous, Unblockist, and BlewPass.
