Restrictions and bans on websites are always annoying, and governments are now censoring content more than ever. Moreover, if you also feel stifled by the blocked websites in your office or school, here are some ways to access blocked websites.
Here are 3 easy ways to bypass the censorship to access blocked websites.
1. Use VPN for unblocking
As its name suggests, a VPN (Virtual Private Network) software acts as hiding layer that doesn’t reveal your real IP address. As per our experience and expert reviews, using a reliable VPN service like NordVPN is the best way to unblock websites with ease. All popular VPNs have their apps for PC, Mac, Android, iOS, etc., which makes it easy to unblock sites at work or school.
2. Replace your DNS Server
We’ve already discussed this method under a separate topic named DNS Hack. You can simply use this method and bypass the blockade. This method generally involves using Google DNS or OpenDNS for accessing the internet.
Recently, Cloudflare also launched its 188.8.131.52 DNS service which claimed to be the fastest, privacy-focused DNS service. Cloudflare also made available their 184.108.40.206 DNS service via Android and iOS apps. I often use this one-click method to access blocked sites in my region.
Changing DNS also ensures better privacy while browsing. Because with default settings every WiFi network you’ve connected to and ISPs have lists of sites you’ve visited.
3. Go to Internet Archive — Wayback Machine
Wayback Machine is an interesting service that stores a copy of most of all website on the internet. It saves multiple versions of a website and you can use it to access the past versions of a website. The users can also use it to browse the blocked content online.
Moreover, this amazing website also contains lots of free movies, documentaries, nostalgic games, ebooks, etc. So, even if some service or websites becomes defunct, Wayback Machine has got your back.
