This is a huge problem for almost everyone and especially for school and college going students. You open your Facebook only to find that it has been blocked by your school/college and it just pisses you off, isn’t it? I can understand the pain and frustration, which is why I am here with a new article on how to unblock websites.
Generally schools and colleges (sometimes at office also) block social media sites, movies websites and other unnecessary websites which divert students mind from studies. But don’t worry pals we have plenty of ways to bypass that restriction or access those blocked websites.
Even I faced this issue during my college days but I was lucky to know few methods to unblock websites. I am going to teach you the same methods to unblock the blocked websites which still works along with some additional methods. Let’s now directly jump to the solutions and learn how to unblock websites using various methods.
How to unblock websites: 5 FREE methods
Use VPN services to unblock websites
A VPN stands for Virtual Private network. VPN is a very smart method to secure your connection. You connect to the server and the VPN server encrypt your connection and then you browse internet through that server. Lets understand this in layman’s language, suppose you want a product and that product is only available at one shop. But that shopkeeper doesn’t give you that product for some reasons, so to get that product you ask your friend to buy that thing for you. Now your friend goes to the shopkeeper and buys the product and then he/she gives it to you. Got the point?
In everyone’s eyes its your friend who bought the product but in reality you were the real consumer. The proxy service also works in the same way but unlike VPN there is no encryption process in proxy. This method is highly recommended to unblock websites while maintaining both privacy and security.
