I cannot access duolingo
Hi, I am a guy from Iran. About 2 days age I noticed that I cannot access duolingo without vpn. Is our government really filter this site? And with vpn, the speed of the internet is really slow. I cannot understand.whats happening?
I looked into this but didn't find anything. However, I read that another online learning site, called Coursera, was also blocked for Iranian users; not because of Iran's government, but because of the US, as part of some sanctions against Iran. I wonder what's going on here?
Can you post a screenshot of the page you get when Duoling fails to load?
I doubt that you got this page:
We cannot find information on it being blocked by Iran or the US at the moment. In order to correct it, we must first understand where the error is coming from. Could you help us out and ask others from Iran to try their accounts on different devices? It might help to know if this is an isolated issue or if everyone is having that problem.
I have already tried 4 devices with android system, and with my computer . I asked two of my friends they have this problem too. Maybe our government bans this site for us? I really don't know.
We are looking for the reason, and so far we do not know why you are experiencing this issue. We will keep looking, please let us know if you find anything out on your end. :|
Hi! Does the phone app work for you? Are you only having trouble accessing us via your browser?
Only with vpn, but i get used to it now, but i still don't know what is the matter of duolingo with iranians?
Iranian cannot access duolingo without vpn, and the app also does not work without vpn.
Thanks for reporting, I will pass it along to the team and see if there is something we can do. Any additional information you can provide will be helpful, for example how long you were able to use it without VPN before, the browser you use and mobile system (android/ios).
Hi, I am also from Iran and have the same issue, but the app works for me without VPN.
btw i am from Iran too.
Duolingo team, is it possible to let us use this beautiful site without vpn? Is there a reason why we cannot use this site? I have tried different devices and I am absolutely sure that no one can access duolingo in Iran. How can I connect duolingo team to talk with them?
