Netflix says 'You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy.'

If you see an error that says

You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy

It means that our systems have detected that you are connecting via a VPN, proxy, or “unblocker” service. Because our content library can vary by region and these services hide your region, you may not be able to stream some movies and TV shows when connected in this way.

If you received this error while trying to play content that you believe is available in your region, follow the troubleshooting steps below.

Disable any proxies, VPNs, or other software that might route your internet traffic outside of your current region.

For best results, we also recommend ensuring your device's network settings are set to Automatic.

If you need help disconnecting from one of these services or restoring your connection's default settings, contact your device manufacturer or internet service provider.
