How To Unblock Websites At School

A website is being blocked by your school? That's not very respectful of them, especially considering how they pretty much force you to attend without even caring about what you'd rather be doing.

The good news is that there are ways to work around the internet filters and access blocked sites anyway.

The easiest way to get access to a blocked website at school is to use a proxy. You can access any other blocked site this way as well.

Enter the website address into the box below. The default settings should work fine for Myspace and Facebook, but you can change the settings below the URL box to your liking. Disabling cookies and Javascript will most likely prevent you from being able to access Myspace or Facebook, but should be fine for most other sites where you don't have to log in.

Enter URL

You can also try these:
Smart DNS Proxy - Free 7 Day Trial (unblocks all sites anywhere in the world - Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube, Netflix, etc.)
Proxy List (provides lists of proxies for any country in the world)
If you decide to sign up with either of those sites, I will get a small monthly commission. :)


Please note that because of new technology and fancy script features added to Myspace and Facebook, the site will look different (basically it'll be using the 'mobile' version of the site - the same version you'd see if you access Myspace or Facebook from your cellphone). All the basics should work just fine though, and everything should load faster because of this. One other note, if you find that the login page is in French, no worries, after you log in everything should be English again (or whatever language you normally have it as). This may happen because this server is in France so Myspace thinks you're in France... when it's actually the proxy that is.

How does this proxy work?

A proxy is like a gateway that sit between your computer and the site you're trying to visit. The proxy visits the site instead of you, accesses the page, and sends it off to you. So the site you're trying to visit never sees your IP. So actually you are browsing sites in an indirect manner. School firewalls think you are just accessing the proxy, not the real site.

It's good to use a proxy site that hardly anyone knows about. Proxies that get used a lot will get discovered and blocked sooner. Proxies that you find by searching Google will be blocked quickly because they're so easy to find. Even if you get a good proxy it's a good idea to have a few others you can use if it gets blocked.

An alternative method of unblocking websites at school is to set up your own proxy tool. This is more advanced than using someone else's proxy but it's a lot nicer to have because you're in control. Explaining how to do this is beyond the scope of this article, if you do a search for "How to make your own proxy" you should find help. You can even make some money from letting people use it through advertising.

Other ways to get on blocked websites include to use sites that translate pages, such as Google Translate or Babelfish. Also try Google's cached copy of the site. Unfortunately, it's not possible to log in that way, so it's still best to use proxies for Myspace and Facebook, though these tips are great for many other sites.
