They have great features and many pro-level security.
How To Visit Region-Restricted Sites From Anywhere?
There are many websites which are region-restricted. It means if you are from another country other than the region of that particular site then you are not allowed to access that country. This problem occurs with me many times and I believe you are also suffering from this type of problem. I can’t visit some of my friends’ suggest sites just because its region-restricted.
For this type of problem, we use VPN service to change our IP address. VPN services donload website content on their servers and delivers it to our devices in encrypted mode.

Now, whenever you’ll browse any website using this app, all the content will be served from Google’s web servers. This makes your browsing experience much better and faster.
There is also another site called weblight.in which also perform the same task. It is used to visit websites in slow internet connection. You can also use this site to bypass any security measurement if google web light doesn’t work.
3. Use a Proxy Server
Proxy Server is a very useful tool that helps to visit a blocked website. The proxy server works as a bridge between you and the website that you wants to visit. It’s the way to change your IP address and there are many free public proxy servers available.
There are many ways of using a proxy in a computer or another device. Let me show how to use a proxy in browsers to browse blocked sites.
- Press Win+R and type Control Panel.
- Search for Internet Options and click the first result.
- Select Connections tab, then click on LAN Settings.
- Check Use a Proxy server for your LAN and enter your proxy address details.
It’s hard to find working proxies. There’s an paid option available e.g buying private proxies but you can try your luck by using free proxies. You can find list of proxies here.
In fact, many online proxy browsers are available for free. Such services are providing an online browser, all you need to do is, just provide them the link of website you want to visit and these online proxy browsers will load that website for free. Such services are insanely free and fast.
However, if you’re thinking to download file using such services, then I would like to tell you that speed throttling can result in failed downloads. Use these services to download small sized files and to browse websites without getting unblocked.
These are some of the online proxy websites that works perfectly:
4. Using Tor Browser
Tor is an onion router and a good browser that is basically used to surf anonymously. This software is very useful software when it comes to unblock websites when firewall is really very strong one. The speed of browsing is really very slow but is acceptable. If you’re thinking of streaming something, then think twice because it’s really very slow to browse using TOR Browser.
TOR can be useful only for browsing websites. All the social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. can be browsed with ease without having any problem.
5. Browse In Secure Connection
This is an old method but it still works in some places. Many websites are still there which do not use a secure connection e.g SSL certificate. But, sites which are using SSL certificates, can be browsed with ease.
Many ISP aren’t able to block connection to a website when using HTTPS connection. To make this trick work you need to open those blocked sites in a secure connection i.e. https:// rather than opening them in http:// connection. This way you can unblock some sites that are blocked in your place. (For example: https://example.com)
6. Read Via Mail
This is the last and least favorite way to access blocked websites in school and other places. In this method, Some sites allow you to access websites through your mail. Sites like Web2mail can send the websites to your mail. Many of the email websites like Gmail, Yahoo and Outlook are capable of opening these type of mail. So by using this trick you can also unblock some of the websites that you want to visit.
