Different kinds of websites, apps, stores, games, and online applications use various methods to prevent users who break the rules from accessing their platforms. One of the most used methods is banning users’ IP addresses.
All these platforms and websites log the users’ IP addresses in their databases and bind them with their accounts, personal information, email, and browser. Some of them even bind the IP address with the user’s hardware. These may sound like too much to you, but that’s the truth.
Now you may ask, is it easy to bypass an IP ban? Depending on the platform, game, or website and the reason got IP banned, the difficulties of bypassing that differ.
While IP Bans mostly apply to cheaters, and people who break the rules, there are some rare cases when users will get IP banned without an obvious reason. Whatever the case may be, below, you will find step-by-step instructions on bypassing any IP ban instantly and getting back to your favorite game, platform, or website again.

YOU CAN FIND ALL THE OFFICIAL SOURCES IN THE ARTICLE AND DOWNLOAD EVERYTHING BY YOURSELF AND DO EVERYTHING MANUALLY IF YOU WISH TO.

OR Receive the files on your Email(Get new updates)
Step 1 – Uninstall the app, game, or browser.
The first and most important thing you’ll have to do is to completely uninstall the game, app, or browser(if you got banned on a website) and make sure to clear every single file related to that.
We want to ensure that no files are left on the PC that could link you back to the IP ban.
Navigate to the Control Panel and choose the option Programs.
Next, click on Programs & Features option.
Locate the app, game, or browser, right-click on it, and choose Uninstall.
If you are on a phone just uninstall the APP.
Step 2 – Clear Cache/Fingerprints/Leftovers.
Now let’s start clearing up any trace files left on your PC. Please double click on each shortcut on the first folder of the files and look for Folders/Files related to the game/app/platform and delete them.
These are the locations you will find in the shortcuts:
- C:\Program Files (x86)
- C:\Program Files
Once you delete everything related to the app/game from all these locations, the next thing you will have to do is to delete some leftovers in the registry.
Press Windows Key + R, and type Regedit.
A window should pop up. You will have to do now to copy each of the locations below, paste them into the registry search bar, and then look for any folders related to the app/game and delete them.
- + more locations on the files.
At each location, you will see a lot of folders on the left side.
Right-click on any folder related to the game/app and choose Delete.
If you are on a phone you can skip this step.
Step 3 – Mask your IP Address.
Your IP address is the most crucial security step that will even make or break everything you did above to bypass the IP Ban. The best way to change your IP address is to use a VPN service or a proxy server(Proxys need an excellent setup to avoid disconnections and unhiding your IP, so let’s stick with the VPN).
This is the most commonly asked question. Do I need a VPN? YES! You do. If you don’t use a new IP, your new account will get linked to your IP ban, and it will be blocked, sometimes instantly or after a few hours/days.
Do I need to use a VPN connection at all times? Yes, that’s one of the reasons I recommend getting NordVPN because you will have the lowest ping possible as well as the biggest variation & quality of IP addresses.
Why not use a Free VPN? Slow speed, high ping, and disconnections all the time which can leak your IP and get you banned instantly again. Don’t believe me? Go ahead and try yourself.
I can’t find a completely free method because you will need a VPN 100%, but you can get NordVPN for 3.29$ per month, which is the best possible solution I can think of.
How to correctly set up the VPN to protect you from getting your actual IP address revealed:
Step 4 – Change your MAC address.
The next thing that immediately gets banned by most games, apps, and platforms after the IP addresses on any IP Ban is the MAC address, so you have to make sure you have a different one. Below you can find step-by-step instructions on how to change your MAC address on any Windows machine.
Navigate to Settings.
Click on Network & Internet.
Click on “Change adapter Options“.
Right-click on your primary internet adapter and click on “Properties“.
Choose Client for Microsoft Networks, and click Configure.
Navigate to the Advanced tab and choose Network Address.
Now go to this website, generate a new mac address, copy it, and paste it to the Network address box.
Click OK, and you will be disconnected for a few seconds/minutes from the internet. No worries, it will get back up.
Now do the same thing for the NordVPN adapter. Right-Click on the NordVPN adapter and choose Properties.
Choose “Client for Microsoft Networks” and click “Configure“. Navigate to the Advanced tab, choose MAC Address, and paste a newly generated MAC address from the generator.
Once you’ve changed your ethernet/wifi adapter and the NordVPN’s adapter, MAC Address, proceed to the next step.
If the above method didn’t work for you
You will easily find a program to change your MAC address in the previously downloaded files. Select your Network Connections, click on the “Random MAC Address” button, and click on “Change Now!“.
Step 5 – Create or buy a new account.
- Use the most commonly used email providers ( Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Protonmail, etc.) Avoid temporary emails.
- The same goes for the phone number. Don’t use the free numbers you’ll find on websites on the internet. Instead, use a phone number you never used before, get a cheap number from Tossable Digits or Hushed.
- Don’t use Russian Numbers until further notice.
Step 6 – Create a new Windows User. (Recommended but not required)
Recently I updated this guide to avoid reinstalling Windows from scratch, but instead of that, you will have to create a new Windows user. Pretty easy to do so; just follow the steps shown in the video below.
Step 7 – Download and Install the game/app/browser.
Now it’s time to go ahead and install it on your computer.
WHENEVER YOU WANT TO PLAY THE GAME or USE THE PLATFORM/WEBSITE/APP, YOU WILL HAVE TO ACTIVATE THE VPN!

When you get IP banned on any platform, game, or website, you’ll be immediately disconnected from any servers, and you won’t be able to reconnect to the server from the same IP/Account until you get unbanned.
