How to Unblock School Websites? Access blocked websites at school, home or anywhere easily
I have provided multiple ways to visit blocked websites from your school computer. You can choose any of them according to the convenience.
#1. Use Google Cache
Have you ever seen a ‘cache’ label right to the Google search results?
That means you can access the website in spite of the blockage. Sometimes, you may not see the cache label on search results. In such cases, you can use a third-party service called CachedView.
Just enter the address of the website you want to access into the field given on the homepage and, press Enter. You will see the cached version within a few moments.
#2. Download Tor Browser
The main reason why you can’t access particular location may be your school authority had set up an IP lock or location lock on the system. So, you need to be anonymous to access the blocked sites from the same computer.
The easiest way to achieve online anonymity is to use Tor browser. As the browser itself adds a mixed layer of anonymity and security over the data traffic, you don’t have to use any third-party services.
#3. Use Google Web Light
Google has a dedicated service for low-speed internet connections that displays a light version of the website you visit. When you want to unblock school sites, you can use this one.
Google Web Light follows the above-given format. When you want to visit a blocked site, you need to replace yourdomain with the exact domain.
For example, http://googleweblight.com/?lite_url=http://www.youtube.com/
#4. Change Your DNS Address
Most probably, you haven’t changed DNS servers yet that your computer selects them automatically. Then, changing DNS addresses can help you unlocking the blocked sites.
You don’t have to be a computer geek to change the DNS addresses. Just follow the steps given below.
Step 1: Hit Windows key (or click on the start button) and, search for Network and Sharing Center. You will get the required item on top. Open it.
Step 2: Once you get it opened, choose Change adapter settings from the left sidebar.
Step 3: You will see a new window like the one given below. It features all the connections you have used so far. In case you have confusion in detecting the connection you are using right now, look for the icon that doesn’t have a red cross on it.
When you recognize the present connection, right-click on it and choose Properties (Alt+ Enter is the shortcut).
Step 4: Find Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/ IPv4) from the list. Again, you have to click on Properties.
Step 5: Select the radio button that says Use the following DNS server addresses and, enter the following into the fields given beneath the same.
Step 5: Finally, hit OK. There you go. I recommend restarting your router if possible.
#5. Setup Proxy on the Browser
Proxies help you be anonymous online. Every web browser today allows you to setup proxies without the aid of any third-party tool.
Here I will give you a few proxy websites for school and shows how to set up them on Google Chrome as well.
Step 1: First, we need the details of a proxy. Visit freeproxylists.net and choose a proxy server with the highest anonymity. Note down the IP address and port number of the same.
Step 2: Open Chrome browser and, click on the three stripes (or dots) given on the top-right portion of the screen.
From the menu that follows, choose Settings.
Step 3: Scroll down to see Show Advanced Settings.
Clicking on the same will fetch you some additional configuration, of which you need to choose Change proxy settings under Network.
Step 4: Now you will see Internet Properties window. Click on the fifth tab, that’s Connections and, select LAN settings from there.
Step 5: Into the appropriate fields given on the wizard that follows, you need to enter the copied details (IP and port number).
Finally, hit Ok. You can use any address from the proxy list for school, I have given.
#6. Use the IP Address: One of the best website unblockers for students
Every website on the internet has a dedicated IP address. When people block websites, they just do it for the domain only, not for the IP.
So, you can enter the IP into the address bar of the browser to visit the website you want to.
Step 1: The first step is finding the IP address. You can do it at once using Command Prompt.
Hit Win key+ R simultaneously to open Run dialogue box. Then, type CMD into the field and press Enter.
Step 2: If you want to visit Facebook.com, type ping Facebook.com into the black window of CMD.
Step 3: You will get the IP address of the same site within no time. Just copy or note it down and, enter it into the address bar of the browser to bypass the blockage.
