How to get around the Netflix VPN ban

VPN

If you are one of the many Netflix users who are not happy about the Netflix library in your own country, you may have considered or tried to use a VPN to access the movies and shows offered in other countries. In fact, until a few years ago Netflix didn’t seem to mind about this. However, this has changed now. Perhaps the distributors of the TV shows have forced Netflix to do something about it. But now some VPN users will be faced with an error message and a temporary ban from the service.

“You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy. Please turn off any of these services and try again.”

This means that the IP address you are using has been recognized by Netflix as one of the blacklisted VPN IP-addresses. To get rid of this error code m7111-1331-5059, you can do any of the following;

Give up and switch off the VPN
Now you will have to watch something from the Netflix library in your own country. However, since you are reading this, it is probably not the answer you were looking for.

Switch servers
Netflix VPN detection system is one of the best in the world and it can be that it simply has detected the IP-address that you are using as coming from a VPN. Even the best VPN services get detected and Netflix is constantly blocking new IP addresses. Simply go to the app of your VPN and try an alternative server in the same country. If you are using a free VPN service, be prepared to try a lot of servers.

Get a Netflix VPN
If you have a VPN from a lesser service, chances are that you won’t find any server that works with Netflix, or that it only works for a very short time. Only the best VPN services can beat Netflix’ detection. One way they do this is by having a large selection of IP addresses and changing them all the time.

A good Netflix VPN, like NordVPN or SurfShark, has thousands of servers all over the world and of course in the country that you are looking to access. It should be fast enough to watch streams without problems and it should have servers dedicated to Netflix and other streaming services. The best VPN for Netflix also has a live chat in case you are stuck finding a server.
