The Internet, as well as being the greatest source of information easily accessible, is, in its entirety, also the greatest source of distraction. Given the huge amount of content on the Web, in fact, it is easy to stumble into memes, GIFs, videos and much more that, although fun, inevitably compromises our productivity.
Precisely for this reason, often institutions such as schools and offices limit access to some sites belonging to different categories, from sites with inappropriate content to simple social networks.
This restriction, however, is not always applied with criteria and it could happen that a file sharing site useful for us is blocked because, on the latter, travel any type of content. How to bypass this block? We’ll explain it to you!
Open blocked sites in the office
To access sites made inaccessible in our company/school network there are several methods more or less effective, paid or not.
A first solution may be to browse anonymously using the numerous free services available online. Among these, one of the most popular is Anonymouse that, since 1997, allows you to access the addresses that we prefer for free.
Then we find additional services also equipped with extensions for web browsers such as Hidemyass, a tool widely used both in its free version and in the paid version.
Use Google Translate
Another less immediate but equally effective method is to take advantage of the translation service offered by Google. What not everyone knows, in fact, is that the page of the Google translator can also translate the web pages of our interest.
Pasting the address of the page of our interest on the left side of the translator, in fact, as a result we will get a link that can be visited on the right side which, once clicked, will take us to that translated page. In doing so, however, Google will act as an intermediary and with this trick you can often get around the blocks imposed on the company network.
Use a VPN
Another possible solution may be to exploit anonymity, however, using a VPN. In this case, the only variable that must be taken into account is the type of VPN that you want to use.
Of course, the free ones involve all the limits of the case as a fixed number of usable MB / GB or a decidedly slow connection. The alternative is to choose a paid service, but even here it remains to be seen if the game is worth the candle.
Access via IP
The last useful way could be to use the IP address to directly access the site of our interest. To do this, go to DNS Stuff and, scrolling further down, stop at Ping and enter the URL of the page you want to visit in the text box.
Pressing on the button, we will provide the results of the ping and the IP address of the host we have chosen. Typing just that in the address bar and pressing enter we should be able to access the page. This solution usually works with larger sites and therefore, considers it as a last resort.
That’s all you can do if you want to try to get around the blockades imposed in your office or school. Do you have any questions? Do you know other methods? Let us know in the comments!
