Unblock Chatroulette

There are several systems to be able to unblock Chatroulette before the ban expires. These are solutions within everyone’s reach, not just the most geeks, so to speak. For more information, please read on. You will find everything explained in the steps below.

Delete the flash cookies

First of all, you must know that to identify people, Chatroulette uses flash cookies , files similar to classic browser cookies which however concern applications that use Flash Player . This means that to find out how to unblock Chatroulette and get around the lock, you should just need to delete this data from your computer.

How you do it? Nothing simpler. Connect using the browser that you generally use to surf the net (eg Chrome ) to this web page  and use the box located in the center of the screen to view the list of flash cookies on your PC. Identify those related to chatrulette.com in the list, select them and click first on the Delete website button  and then on the one with the  word Confirm to delete them from your computer.

If you want to do more in-depth work, permanently delete all the flash cookies saved in the system by clicking on the  Delete all  and Confirm buttons .

At this point, by trying to access Chatroulette again, you should finally be able to use the service again.

Change IP address

If the information I have already given you did not have the desired effect and therefore you still cannot access Chatroulette, you can try to cope with this by changing your IP address . Chatroulette, in fact, identifies the individual users who use the service based on their IP, consequently, by changing the latter you should then be able to resume using the service without difficulty.

To carry out the operation in question, all you have to do is turn off your modem / router with the power button located on the back of the device and turn it back on.

Alternatively, you can go into  the modem / router’s internal control panel and do everything from there. To do this, open the browser you usually use to surf the net and type the IP of the modem / router in the browser’s address bar, usually it corresponds to 192.168.0.1 or  192.168.1.1 . If incorrect, you can try to find out the correct one by reading my guide on how to find router IP address.

If you see a form appear where you are asked to type in your username and password , try the combination admin / admin or with  admin / password which are the default ones. If there are any problems, read my tutorial on how to see the modem password to find out how to deal with it.

Once logged into the device control panel, click on the router restart button which is usually found in the Administration or System Tools sections of the panel and wait for the modem / router to restart and then Internet connection re-established.

Unfortunately, I cannot be 100% precise about the sections to look for in the modem / router configuration panel and the buttons to press as these may vary depending on the brand and model of the device. However, if this can somehow help you, here are some of my specific guides by brand and by provider.

Use a proxy server

How to unblock Chatroulette

If you use an Internet connection with a static IP address, so even if you restart the modem / router it always remains the same, or in any case if you are looking for an alternative to the practices already described to be able to unblock Chatroulette, I strongly suggest you take consider using a web proxy . Proxies, to put it in pennies, are remote computers that interpose themselves between the device used to surf the Net and the sites to be visited, allowing Internet users to disguise their real geographical position and relative IP address.

Among the various Web proxy services available on the market, I personally suggest you to use  Whoer.net . It is free (but possibly available in a paid variant with more options), has a pleasant interface, works with any navigator and allows you to choose between different locations: France, Holland, Russia, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States.

To use it, connect to  the Whoer.net main page and enter, in the appropriate field on the left, the complete Chatroulette address, that is: https://chatroulette.com .

Then use the drop-down menu on the right to select the server to use. If you prefer the server to be set randomly, leave the  Random server option selected . Next, press the  Go! Button.  placed even further to the right and within a few moments you will find yourself in front of the Chatroulette home page. It was easy, wasn’t it?

In the unfortunate event that Whoer.net does not work, you can rely on an alternative Web proxy service, as in the case of the ones I reported to you in my post dedicated specifically to the topic.

Use a VPN

Programs to change IP

As an alternative to using a web proxy service, you can consider using a VPN . It is a system that acts as an intermediary between the user’s computer and the sites (or services), hiding the real IP address and therefore the real identity of the Internet user (the connection can in fact be made to appear as coming from another country) and protecting inbound and outbound traffic.

Among the various VPN services available on the market, I suggest you try  TunnelBear . It is a program for Windows and macOS, very simple to use and totally free, up to the monthly threshold of 500 MB. To get around this limitation, you need to take out a paid subscription ($ 9.99 / month or $ 59.99 / year).

To use it, connect to the TunnelBear website and click on the  Get Started, It’s Free button  in the center, in order to download the program on your computer.

Once the download is complete, if you are using a PC with Windows installed , open the .exe file you just obtained and click in sequence on the  I AgreeInstall and  Yes buttons to complete the setup.

If, on the other hand, you are using macOS , extract the resulting ZIP archive  and drag the TunnelBear icon inside it to the Applications folder of macOS. Subsequently, right-click on it and select the Open item twice in a row, so as to start the program, however, going around the limitations imposed by Apple on non-certified developers (an operation that must be performed only at the first start).

Now that, regardless of the operating system, you see the TunnelBar window on the screen, create your account to use the service by clicking on the  Create a free account  item and fill in the form that is proposed to you indicating your email address and the password that you want to use to log in. Then click on the  Next and  Skip buttons .

Then access your e-mail box, open the e-mail sent to you by TunnelBear and click on the link contained within it to confirm the account you just created.

Then go back to the program window, click on the  Continue button  and accept the possible installation of the drivers that are proposed to you.

Now, you can finally start using the service. All you have to do is choose a country  from the drop-down menu at the top left or, alternatively, click on one of the tunnels on the interactive map. Then, through the notice you see appear, confirm your choice, open the browser you usually use to surf the Internet and go to the Chatroulette site. At this point, you should finally be able to log into the service.

When you want, you can disable the use of the VPN by  turning  the switch located in the upper left part of the TunnelBear window to Off .

Note that in addition to being usable from a computer, TunnelBear also works on smartphones and tablets (so you can use it to get around the Chatroulette ban from there too), in the form of an app for  iOS  and  Android .

Contact Chatroulette

Despite having adopted the solutions that I have proposed to you in the previous lines, have you not been able to unblock the use of the famous videochat service? I’m sorry but… don’t throw in the towel! There is one more thing you can do: contact the Chatroulette team and expose the situation directly to those in charge.

To do this, open the e-mail management program that you usually use on your computer or, alternatively, open your favorite Webmail service, start composing a new message by clicking on the appropriate button (generally it is the one depicting the pencil and paper ) and enter the e-mail address  support@chatroulette.com in the field dedicated to the recipient  ( A ) , i.e. the one to contact Chatroulette support.

Now, enter a brief description of the problem you are having  in the Subject field, while through the body of the message explain the situation in detail, pointing out the fact that you think that your IP address has been blocked by the service by mistake, which precisely for this reason you are no longer able to use Chatroulette and that if you have done something that could be interpreted as a violation of the terms of use, you apologize for the unfortunate inconvenience and promise that it will never happen again in the future. If you want a suggestion, write the message in English , in order to facilitate communication.

Still in the body of the message, I advise you to add extra information that can help identify your user, such as your IP address and the indicative time in which you remember that the ban has entered into force, in order to allow the Chatorulette team to retrieve the recordings of your chat sessions and to understand if the block against you has been legitimately applied or not.

Finally, send the message by clicking on  the send button (usually it is the one depicting a paper airplane ) and wait for a response from Chatroulette, bearing in mind that it could arrive even after several hours or days, it all depends on the number of requests that the support must escape.

Alternative a Chatroulette

Did you already know that, Chatroulette aside, there are also many other videochat services with similar good or bad functioning and that you can therefore consider using while waiting for the ban to be removed or in any case as an alternative regardless? No? Well, now you are aware of it and if you are interested in it, below you will find those that in my opinion represent the best solutions in the category.

  • hello aMigos – this is an Italian-language videochat service with which it is possible to chat with several people simultaneously, after choosing the room to access. Note that it allows you to personally select users to see each other on cam.
  • Bazoocam – fairly simple to use videochat service that allows you to talk via webcam with different users chosen in a completely random way. It also integrates a text chat system to facilitate communication.
  • Shaggle – is also localized in Italian, every day it is used by many users all over the world and its user interface is modern and quite pleasant. As in the case of Chatroulette, users to video chat with are selected by the service at random and automatically.
