Best Ways to Access Blocked Websites at Work, School, or College: You have nothing to do and are completely free, so you thought about spending some time with your Facebook friends. You get up, open your laptop, connect to your college’s WiFi, type in the Facebook URL, and hit Enter. And at that wonderful time, you get a message from your college network saying “Access Denied.” Don’t try to tell me how frustrating that is; I’ve been there. But what the college administration doesn’t know is that the Internet can’t be locked down. The more they try to lock it up, the more we want to find a way to open it. There are a lot of ways to get around the security of a network. In this article, I’ve tried to cover many of the ways you can access blocked websites like YouTube, Facebook, Quora, etc. from your college or workplace network. Learn how to hack this simple trick by reading on.
Using the Internet Wayback Machine
Internet Archive is the biggest website on the planet that stores old versions of any website. Since it is not a proxy site, there is no chance that it will be banned. So, you can easily use it to visit any site that is blocked at school, college, or work. Just do a search on the site and then choose the most recent date from the calendar on the next page. This will let you look at the blocked site.
By Using Proxy Sites
A proxy server is a server that acts as a middleman between you and the server you want to get information from. It hides who you are, so many people use it to get to websites that are blocked. On the Internet, there are many proxy servers that you can use for free. In the screenshot below, you can see that I used the ProxySite.com proxy server to get to facebook.com, which is usually blocked at school and work.
Here is a list of every single Proxy site in the world.
Using IP addresses
You can access blocked websites with the help of command prompt. For this, first, right click on the command prompt icon and run in the administrator mode. Then type ping in “blocked site’s URL” into your command prompt. Use the IP address that command prompt returns, to access the blocked sites.
By using Google Translation
Google Translate is a good way to get to websites that are blocked on a network. If you change the URL of the blocked site to any other language, you can use this new link to get to the blocked site.
With the help of Command Prompt, you can get to websites that have been blocked. First, right-click on the Command Prompt icon and run it as an administrator. Then, in your command prompt, type ping “URL of blocked site.” To get to the blocked sites, use the IP address that Command Prompt gives you.
By Using Decimal Codes
- To get to a website that has been blocked, you can turn its IP address into its decimal equivalent.
- First, you need to find the site’s IP address.
- Then all you have to do is change your IP address to decimal 5converter.
Using Google’s cache
Just look for the website on Google, click on the triangle icon at the end of the green url in the search results, and then click on cached. With this trick, you can only see the site’s front page or the page you searched for.
