Vietnam is among one of those countries that are restricted from using OpenAI’s chatbot ChatGPT. Although, this doesn’t entirely mean users can access ChatGPT through different measures such as VPN (Virtual Private Network).
A VPN can help users hide their IP address and switch to the IP address of a different location and unblock restricted websites such as ChatGPT.
In this article, we will mention a step-by-step guide on how to use ChatGPT in Vietnam to help users residing in Vietnam access ChatGPT effortlessly.
Is ChatGPT blocked in Vietnam?
ChatGPT is restricted in Vietnam, therefore, users in Vietnam will see an error “OpenAI unavailable in your country” every time they try to access ChatGPT. However, you can still access ChatGPT by using VPN (Virtual Private Network) which will help unblock restricted websites by changing their IP address and allowing users to access ChatGPT in Vietnam.
How to use ChatGPT in Vietnam
Here are some of the methods that you can try to use ChatGPT in Vietnam:
Use a VPN
To use ChatGPT in Vietnam, you can use a VPN to your original IP address to a location where ChatGPT is available, like the US, UK, Germany, France, or more. There are tons of VPNs available in the market. Currently, some of the top VPNs you can choose from are NordVPN, Surfshark, ExpressVPN, AtlasVPN, and more.
Once you have installed the VPN on your device, you need to connect to a different IP address from the available locations in the VPN. After you have connected to a different location, you can visit the official site of OpenAI and sign up for an account to access ChatGPT.
When you sign up to ChatGPT, you will be required to provide your email address and phone number of the selected location to create an OpenAI account.
Here you can provide the phone number of your friend or relative from the supported country or use online services like services-active, e-SIM Plus, Online Sim, and more to perform the phone verification. Once you have completed the verification process, you can access ChatGPT in Vietnam without trouble.
Private Mode of your Web Browser
Another thing you can do is combine VPN and access ChatGPT through Private Mode (Incognito Window). This helps in keeping the user’s browsing private.
Once you turn on the VPN on your device and change your location to a different region or country, you need to tap on the three dots on the right side and select the third option, “New Incognito Window). For a shortcut, you can also use Ctrl + Shift + N to open the Incognito window.
Now, you can visit the Chat GPT website using this link https://chat.openai.com/auth/login?next=%2Fchat and sign up to OpenAI to access ChatGPT in Vietnam.
Does ChatGPT support the Vietnamese language?
Yes, ChatGPT does support the Vietnamese language. So, once you have access to ChatGPT by changing your IP address through VPN, you can ask the AI chatbot to generate texts and respond to your queries in the Vietnamese language.
