    Hi there,

    Unfortunately due to legal reasons, users from Iran and Cuba will not be able to use OneSignal nor subscribed to push notifications.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    From Venezuela I have a similar problem

    What i need to do?

    it’s funny. onesignal keep telling us “because of legal issues”. I have to ask, this legal issues are only for your company?????? not google or Facebook or WP or Microsoft?

    i think it is racist not legal issues. if you don’t know how people of iran, venezuela or cuba living these days with their regimes, Email me to explain to you. u BANNED PEOPLE.

    OneSignal is based in the United States, so we have to abide by US laws and cannot work with countries on the US Embargo List. Obviously, this hurts us too – our goal is to power the world’s messages. We’re hoping sanctions get lifted soon. Apologies for the inconvenience!

    There is no embargo or Ban against the country of Venezuela by the state Department, except and only for top officials on the Government. The travel band only refers, in the case of Venezuela to High Government officials.

    Hi,

    After reviewing this with our law firm, we have decided to lift the block on users based in Venezuela. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. And we hope you enjoy using OneSignal!

    Best,

    It should work now. 🙂

    @onesignal Actually I have access to Onesignal.com website from Venezuela. But I’m testing sending messages to my test user in Venezuela and the messages are not arriving. Is it possible that messages are still being blocked for users in Venezuela? Please could you double check that (and solve the issue if it’s still blocked) or tell me please why messages are not arriving to my test user using chrome browser in Venezuela.

    Thanks for your help in this matter.
