How to access facebook at school when blocked

Hello,

In this article I will go over different methods of accessing facebook when it is being blocked by your school for example. None of these methods are guaranteed to work. This article can be used to access blocked sites in general.

FreeGate
1) If you are able, go to google.com and download Mozilla Firefox. It is a internet browser.
2). Using Firefox, go to google and download/install a program called Freegate.
3) Install the program and follow the instructions it gives you to setup the configuration. You will be changing some proxy settings.
Make sure that freegate is running when you are using firefox.

Switching to HTTPS
1) If you are at school, and you go to http://www.facebook.com, and it is blocked, you can try adding a "s" to http. What this does is switch from a standard connection to an encrypted one. Some administrators will not block a secured connection. Just simply add the "s" so it is https://www.facebook.com

Online Proxy
This basically hides your online movements. It is less likely to work as administrators will block sites with the words "proxy" and or common proxy sites.

1) You may be able to use an online proxy to go to facebook. The links below are to some of my favorite online proxies. Just simple go to one, enter in the URL address(in this case http://www.facebook.com) and it should take you to the website.

CTunnel
This site has some really aggravating ads, but if you can look past that it is decent.

1)If you can access this website, you can use it to visit facebook.

Setting up a private proxy server with SSL
This step is more in depth, but the pay off is that you will have your own private proxy server with SSL encryption you can use to visit any site you want without fear of being blocked or your traffic viewed. Very ideal for anonymous web browsing.

For this method, it is recommended to setup a proxy server on a Linux based computer, however, you can use Windows. Once you have a private server set up, you can set your proxy configuration in firefox to use your server.

You can read more about this step by visiting the link below.

Alternatively, instead of creating a server you can pay to use one or maybe you know someone with a server. A simple google search of "proxy servers" can yield the results you want.

I hope this article was informative. Be sure to pay attention and do your class work :)

i Need to know how to Unblock facebook or access facebook at school.


Hello, this solution should be regarded only as an experimental, one time only method. At school facebook is blocked for a reason, to prevent you from getting distracted.

However... by using a free web proxy (google it) you and others whose ISP blocks some sites, you can access facebook. Another way is probably to use Tor onion layer network portable, or combine the two, your choice.
Note: it is possible that proxies are also blocked, but not likely.

Good luck!
