If you’d like to access blocked websites at your home, office or college, then let’s check out in this post how to do so?
Use a Virtual Private Network
This type of network helps you remain anonymous on the web by keeping your internet session secure and hidden. If certain websites are blocked by a firewall or some other similar application, then a VPN can help you unblock those websites. Advantages of using a VPN are as follows:
- Whenever you connect to the internet, your ISP provides you with a unique IP address. A VPN service masks this allotted IP address and provides you with a brand new IP address (generally shared by lots of users on the web), so that you remain completely anonymous on the web.
- Establishes an encrypted connection between your computer and the server of various websites that you are visiting. This makes transfer of data packets completely secure.
- Your ISP can’t monitor your browsing session or activities.
- Helps you to do business oriented tasks like audio-video conferencing, desktop sharing and file transfer (download and upload) securely.
- Helps you to access block sites like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube etc.
- Allows you to bypass proxies and content filters.
- Allows you to chat over Skype and other VoIP-based services.
- Protects your from DNS spoofing.
