    Facebook Access Restricted (BAD IP): What Is The Solution?




    Since yesterday, I have been unable to access my Facebook account on my iPad. I can browse other websites on the same iPad but anytime I try to open www.facebook.com from the Safari browser and Opera Mini for iPad, I keep been redirected to a page displaying "Access Restricted (Bad IP)". Facebook app and MyPad app for iPad are also not working.



    Below is the actual message being displayed whenever I try to open the Facebook site:




    Access Restricted (Bad IP)

    You are trying to access Facebook from an IP (Internet Protocol) address that's associated with a misconfigured ISP (Internet Service Provider) or abusive behavior. If you think this is an error, please tell us more.



    Surprisingly, I can access my Facebook account on my laptop using the same Glo network, whose data plan am also sharing with the iPad.



    I searched on Google for help but noticed similar questions posted on Yahoo Answers yesterday. So, I think there is a problem with Facebook or my IP address falls in the range of IPs recently blacklisted by Facebook. If blacklisted, I hope it will be OK in a week because I read somewhere online that minimum days of banned IP address is 7 days.



    While I wait for Facebook to resolve the issue, I am accessing my Facebook account on my iPad using HideMyAss and HotspotShieldVPN for iPad. You can try them in masking your IP address for now.
