The simplest way to get around a web filter is to use a proxy service. Like a VPN, it routes your traffic through another network, but unlike a VPN it tends to only work with specific applications (e.g. your web browser or torrent application) rather than your whole connection. . That might be fine if you just want to quickly get around a web filter, but for ongoing browsing there are some downsides to a proxy.
One final way to get around web filters is to instruct your PC or laptop to use different DNS tables. Google Public DNS is a free, global Domain Name System resolution service. Every time you visit a website, your computer performs a DNS lookup, converting the numerical address of that web page to the site you see. If web filtering is applied to your system and network those domain names that pertain to tainted sites will be blocked from resolving the page you are expecting. Using an untainted DNS such as Google's gets around this.
A virtual private network is a type of proxy that is commonly used by companies and individuals to increase data security on the internet. When you connect to a VPN, your information is automatically encrypted, making it safe to transmit sensitive information on a public Wi-Fi network. A VPN is a particularly useful way to bypass blocked sites when you are traveling in countries like China and the United Arab Emirates, which have governmental internet restrictions in place. Check with your company's IT department to find out how to log in to your corporate VPN. Or set up your own VPN on your home network for personal internet use. If you're using a mobile device, you can download a VPN app.
Google explains how to use .
One of your other options is to use , a.k.a. ‘The Onion Router’, to browse the web. Tor is the best known example of an ‘anonymity network’, and uses layered (hence the name) encryption and peer-to-peer networking to bounce your traffic around, allowing you to browse with almost complete anonymity.
There’s one major downside to using Tor however: it’s slow. Relaying your traffic around the world a few times takes time, which means you can expect to experience much slower speeds when you browse through Tor. That’s the sort of trade-off you might be willing to make for increased privacy, but it’s not necessarily worth it if all you want is to bypass a filter - especially since the slower speeds will make streaming any sort of HD video difficult.
We'd recommend opting for a paid VPN, but we've also run down some of the other options available right now. As always, be safe and smart, and we don’t condone or encourage using these methods to access content illegally. Here's how.
There are free public proxies, but many have a for collecting or selling user data, inserting ads into web pages, or stripping away encryption. With that in mind, we wouldn’t recommend using a proxy service for regular browsing - you’re better off with a VPN - but if you only want to get around a web filter on a few specific occasions, a free proxy is probably your easiest option.
A proxy encrypts your Web traffic, enabling you to hide your location and your IP address as you are browsing the internet. When you access the internet using a proxy, you are able to browse websites that are blocked by your Wi-Fi network. To do so, simply visit the proxy site and enter the URL of the website you want to visit. Thousands of proxies exist on the internet, including WebProxy.net, and UnblockYouTube.co.uk. Keep in mind that many networks have blocked a number of proxy websites, so you may need to try multiple sites before you find one that works.
Proxies are often used by people hoping to access region-locked content like Hulu or , or iPlayer if you're not in the UK, and they also offer some extra anonymity while browsing. But they can also often be used to avoid local content filters by circumventing them, hopefully allowing you to browse the web freely.
If you are using your own computer to access a Wi-Fi network with blocked sites, you can download tools that are designed for anonymous internet use. Products like Privoxy, Hotspot Shield and Tor encrypt all of your Web traffic, so you don't need to worry about returning to the proxy site each time you want to visit a new website. Some software tools, like Ultrasurf, can be downloaded onto an SD card or a USB drive so you can use them on any computer.
