In a few country some of websites was blocked for some reason. At school, library and office you also get blocked for accessing websites like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, gaming-websites etc.
Even in my country most of internet providers has blocked so many websites with negative content. That’s good and I really support and totally agree with that.
But unfortunately some of websites that have no negative content like Reddit was sometimes also blocked too and we need to find some information from there.
So in this short article let’s find out how to unblock-blocked websites for a “positive purposes”
Using free IP: Port Proxy
There is several websites who provide proxy lists that you can find on Google, but in this guid I use free-proxy-list.net as an example.
To do it just go to free-proxy-list.net and find free proxy available there choose one with most High +KA with port 8080 copy to clipboard.
For Mac OS user Open Network settings in System Preferences>Setting>Advanced>Proxy paste proxy from hidemyass.com on Web Proxy (http) and click OK. see picture below
If you were using Firefox go to Firefox>Preferences>Advanced>Network>Conection>Setting>Manual Proxy Configuration paste proxy and port and click OK
Now try to open blocked sites with your browser if still get blocked change the proxy with other proxy.
I haven’t try this trick on Windows I always forgot to apply this trick on Windows but you can try it and if it works well too please let me know.
Still get blocked ? don’t worry we still have other easy way.
Using Tor Browser
This is most easiest way and it works on all operating system just go to torproject.org and download Tor Browser for your device for free. Install the software and start browsing anonymously.
Did you know? with TorBrowser you can even surfing onto the Dark Web. But be careful when surf around on the Dark Web make sure you cover your webcam with tape or something just in case. For more information about the dark web go to wikipedia.
TOR Browser using the “The Onion Router” (TOR) method to surf the web unanimously. And its free.
When you using TOR it makes difficult for people to trace your internet activities. It works by routing internet traffics trough Tor’s network of randomly selected relays (run by volunteers) that are scattered all over the world.
Note! Please read how Tor browser really works on Tor website page
Disadvantages of using Tor’ networks is very slow because the datas routed trough “randomly” a number of relays. Different with using VPN that using one server that stands between your computer and the requested site.
Using VPN Services
Another way to unblock websites is by using VPN Service. In my opinion this is the best, fast and most secure ways. Different with using web proxy using VPN is offer much better security. The analogy of using web proxy is like when you are walking in a mall while you are naked, of course it’s different with using VPN.
My recommendation: You can use software like Hotspotshield Elite to unblock-blocked website using their VPN service subscription.
Why use VPN services?
By using VPN is not only easily unblocked websites. Its also protect you from malware and malicious website while you enjoy freedom to surf the web anonymously.
Hotspot Shield is the most recommended software to do this task. You will get your ultimate privacy protection, Wi-Fi Security, Unrestricted access to content and much more.
One more thing Hotspot Shield also A great complimentary product to any Antivirus program extending protection and privacy to online browsing.
Anyway you can try this great software for 7 days free trial. Hotspot Shield available for Mac, Windows, iPhone/iPad and Android.

Honestly the only disadvantage of using VPN service is cost you money. 😜 Although is not very expensive. By the way if you can deal with all those ads and delays, there are also free VPN services.
Conclusion (Internet Positive)
Always consider to use it for educational and positive purpose only is a wise. However its all up to you.
Me, will always support internet provider that block all website with negative content because so many interesting stuff on internet that we can found instead of wasting our time and money for “negative things” you know!.
Remember to always keep yourself secure while surfing the web.
And thats it!
