Office and college WiFi usually block certain websites. And now, Internet service providers have started blocking torrent and file-sharing websites. Even websites that have almost nothing to do with file-sharing or piracy, such as pastebin.com, are being blocked. So what do we do now?

Fortunately, there are ways to bypass the web filtering.

1. Novice method:

Use a proxy site. For e.g: http://www.hidemyass.com/proxy/

Note: Generally, most of them are blocked. So I would recommend method 2.

2. Intermediate method:

Change the proxy settings of the browser.

Grab an IP port from here: HMA’s Proxy List

For instance, I have selected this IP: 188.128.118.177:8080

Step 1:

To verify, go to google and type “what is my ip”. You will find that your IP address has been changed to your proxy address.

Cheers!
