OFWs in Saudi ,Are you facing any problems or issues while calling your family and friends through IMO mobile app or FB messenger app, Don’t worry.
You are not the only one who is facing this issue almost all expatriates & citizens of Saudi Arabia reporting that IMO free voice calls and video calls including FB messenger free voice & video calls are not working since yesterday and few reported it’s not working for them from today.
Last year Saudi Arabia suspended services of Whatsapp free call, video calling, Viber free calls and Skype call. The ban was not only in Saudi Arabia, These services are blocked by many countries including GCC(Gulf Cooperation Council) States.
Government of Saudi Arabia officially has not announced any news related to blacklist, the reason has not been published by Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Main Reason of blocking Facebook Messenger and IMO Software is security. Because government of Saudi Arabia thinks that terrorist or people whose against government has been using these online software’s due to no security. Minister of communication and information technology already blocked Viber almost three years ago due to security seasons. WhatsApp Calling is also not working in Saudi Arabia only Text Message by Facebook and Whatsapp is allowed by Saudi Government. Currently Line Calling Software and Tango Software is Good Option of Residents of Saudi Arabia. the Banned on IMO and FB Messenger remains closed due to security purpose.
