How to bypass an Internet filter

If you have ever tried to check your email or visit a perfectly legitimate website, and seen "Access Denied" on the screen, you have probably encountered an Internet filter. Many schools and workplaces use these as a means of stopping the user from visiting harmful sites, but sometimes you may urgently need to access a site which is blocked by a filter. This article will discuss how to bypass an Internet filter.

The basics

You should first make sure that you are doing a work safe activity before proceeding. Doing this might be a violation of your workplace or school's network terms of use, so always check with your supervisor before doing any of the following. Disclaimer: For educational purposes only. Blocking IP addresses Most Internet filters work by blocking known IP (Internet Protocol) addresses of networks that the network manager wants to obstruct access to. The programme might be browser specific, which means that it is an add-on for whatever browser you have installed, or it could be a modem-level blocker. Modem level blockers impede IP ranges no matter how you might access them. The methods discussed below are the basics on how to bypass Internet filters. Please note that the network manager can still easily tell what you are doing. Therefore, do this only in an emergency and for legitimate purposes.

How to bypass

Provided that you are using a blacklist filter (this blocks only those websites which are specified by the administrator), you can simply take advantage of new proxy servers that have not been found and blocked yet. Depending on the level of security, some filters disallow almost every proxy, while others do not seem to find any. Searching on Google To find new proxies, simply search on Google for "newest pro xy servers" (with the space between the pro and xy). This will bypass any type of keyword blocker. Next, find a site that looks reliable. Note that since any site on the top page of the Google results will be blocked, you will need to click on the "Cached" link to view the page. This will allow you to see a slightly older version of the page with the proxies listed. Most proxies will still work with this method. Simply visit one of the proxy links on one of those pages to get started! The first page is full of blocked proxies? Don't give up hope! Try to bypass that filter with another page of proxies!
