OmeTV is a video chat platform that currently enjoys great popularity. You can see communicate with other people directly instead of just exchanging monotonous text messages. Still, many users complain that they have been blocked by the OmeTV operators due to unclear reasons.
Given that an IP becomes blocked following a ban, it’s not easy to navigate around this.
In this article, we will demonstrate how to simulate a different IP address using Shellfire VPN, which will allow you to create a new account with OmeTV.

How to Use OmeTV with Shellfire VPN
Your IP address depends on your location and your Internet provider, which assigns it to you. If you are blocked by OmeTV based on your IP address, you will have no recourse to bypass it. IP addresses are dynamic, meaning you can log in again at another time, but there is a risk you will be blocked again. This is because the website operator can narrow down your geographic location via your IP address and, if necessary, ban a complete IP block.
A good way to get a new IP address is to use a VPN. This is an application that encrypts all your traffic and redirects it through a VPN server based in a location of your choice. Shellfire lets you choose the location you want according to your preferences.
How to easily simulate a new IP address to re-access OmeTV:
- Download the appropriate Shellfire VPN software for your operating system.
- Run the installer.
- Select a target country of your choice in the software menu and connect to the Internet.
Why use OmeTV with VPN?
OmeTV has a comparatively restrictive set of rules, which means that even minor violations are punished with a permanent user ban. Reasons for exclusion include insults, but also the display of obscene gestures, such as the extended middle finger. A ban is possible even if the gesture or insult was clearly meant in a joking manner. Users also report bans that were apparently imposed without justification.
In addition, sharing adult content is grounds for a permanent ban according to the Terms of Service, although OmeTV interprets the term “adult content” very restrictively.
Creating a new account is theoretically possible via a new Facebook or VK account, to which you can connect your account with OmeTV. However, keep in mind that Facebook also identifies its users by their IP address, and creating multiple accounts violates the terms of service there.
VK, on the other hand, is a Russian provider whose privacy terms are unclear. We therefore advise you not to create multiple accounts with VK to gain access to OmeTV.
Using a VPN also makes sense if you are in other countries. In some countries, access to OmeTV is not possible due to geo-blocking. This includes China and Pakistan, but also popular vacation destinations like the United Arab Emirates and Turkey. You’re also affected by geo-blocking when travelling, since unless you use a VPN, your IP address is dependent on your location.
In addition, there are other reasons to use a VPN when you access OmeTV : if you are on a public Wi-Fi, for example, the person providing that access can theoretically spy on your data traffic. If you use a VPN, you can be sure that no one will know who you are chatting with on OmeTV.
Is Using OmeTV with VPN allowed?
Note: The following paragraph does not constitute legal advice. Make sure that your online actions are compliant with the laws of the country where you reside.
Using a VPN is legal in most European countries. The regulations that can be found on OmeTV’s website do not prohibit the use of a VPN either.
Still, keep in mind that disguising your IP address is not a license for illegal activity. Be aware that some activities which you might consider legal can violate the rights of other people and companies. This includes streaming music and other copyrighted content.
OmeTV’s rules are extremely restrictive and even trivial, careless actions can lead to a permanent ban, which you can’t avoid by creating a new account due to the IP blocks.
A VPN offers you many advantages when using OmeTV: you won’t just regain your access to the popular video chat platform if you were banned, but also be able to protect your privacy.
The best thing to do is to download Shellfire VPN today and enjoy the benefit that a simulated IP address offers.
