The more they try to lock it up, the more the motivated we get, to crack it open. There are a lot of ways through which you can bypass a network’s security. In this article, I have tried to cover many of the ways through which you can access blocked websites like youtube, facebook, quora etc from your college/ workplace networks.

Through Proxy Sites
- A proxy server is an intermediary server which acts on your behalf to get the information you requests. It hides your identity and thus is widely used to access blocked websites. There are a number of proxy servers available for free-use on the Internet. In the below screenshot, I have used the proxy server, ProxySite.com, to access facebook.com which is a blocked website in most of the college/workplace networks.
Through Google Translate
- Google Translate is an efficient way using which you can access blocked websites in a network. Convert the URL of the blocked site to any regional language and this converted link can be used to access the blocked website.

Internet archive is the biggest website on earth storing past versions of any website. Since its not a proxy site, the chances of it being banned are null. So, you can use it easily for browsing any banned site at your school, college or workplace. Juts search the website and then pick any latest date from the calendar obtained on next page to browse the blocked site.
