How to Unblock Facebook at School
Open the Command Prompt on your computer at home (Windows). You can start the Command Prompt from the Start menu. You may not be able to access the command prompt from school, so try this at home first.
  • You can also start the Command Prompt by pressing ? Win+R and typing cmd into the box.
Open Terminal on your computer at home (Mac). You can find the Terminal program by opening the "Applications" folder and then opening the "Utilities" folder.
  • You may also be able to access the Utilities folder from the Go menu.
Type .ping facebook.com and press ? Enter. This works in both the Command Prompt and Terminal. Your system will make a connection to the Facebook website and return the results.
Make note of the IP address. Once the Ping command has run, you will see a series of numbers next to facebook.com in the results. The IP address is four groups of up to three numbers each. Write this number down, including the periods, and take it to school.
Enter the IP address into the browser address bar at school. Press ? Enter to visit the site. Some older blocking systems only block the name and not the IP address, so you may be able to access the site this way.
  • IP Addresses change on occasion, so you may need to repeat these steps after a while.

Method 2 of 4: Using a Proxy Site

1. Find a list of proxy sites on your computer at home. A proxy is a server that you connect to that allows you to get "outside" of your network. A proxy is also useful because all the work is being done through the browser, so the method works regardless of your computer's operating system.
  • There are several websites that list proxies that you can use. Proxy.org is a great place to start that is constantly updating its
2. Make a list of 10-15 sites to take to school. There's a good chance that proxy listing sites like Proxy.org will be blocked by the school network. Visit the proxy listing sites at home and make a list of 10-15 proxy sites to try at school. list.

3. Try the first site on your list on your school computer. If the site is blocked, try the next one.
  • Proxies that are overused get noticed and blocked, so vary which ones you use on a day-to-day basis.
  • Schools update their proxy site list very often, so chances are that most of your selections will be blocked already. Try to have a large list of proxy sites to try.
4. Select the URL box on the proxy site. Enter "facebook.com" or any other website you wish to visit. Since proxy sites reinterpret the data of website you are trying to access, there's a chance that the site won't load correctly. Most commonly, videos will not load. If this is the case, try again with a different proxy site.
  • Using a proxy site will make browsing significantly slower. This is because the traffic is rerouted through the proxy, reinterpreted and then sent to your location. Be aware that videos and websites may take longer to load, or may not load at all.

Method 3 of 4: Using Your Phone as a Wireless Hotspot

1. Check that your phone can make a hotspot. You will need a smartphone with tethering enabled through the carrier. Many plans in the US allow tethering automatically, though some require paying for the feature to be enabled.
  • Using your phone as the network connection will bypass any restrictions placed on the school network.
2. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or Android.
3. Open the Portable Hotspot/Tethering section. If you can't open this section, then your plan does not support tethering.
  • Android - Tap "More" in the "Wireless & Networks" section. Tap "Tethering & portable hotspot".
  • iOS - Tap "Personal Hotspot".
4. Turn on your phone's hotspot. This will allow you to use it as an access point for a new network.
  • Android - Check the "Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot" box.
  • iOS - Toggle the "Personal Hotspot" toggle on.
5. Get the wireless password for your new network.
  • Android - Tap "Set up Wi-Fi hotspot". Check the "Show password" box.
  • iOS - Tap "Wi-Fi Password".
6. Connect to the hotspot on the computer. Click the computer's wireless network icon and select your mobile phone from the list of available networks. Enter the password from your phone to connect to the network.
7. Connect your phone to the computer via USB if it doesn't have wireless. After connecting your phone with tethering enabled to the computer via USB cable, you should be able to select it by clicking on the network icon in your system tray (Windows) or menubar (OS X).

8.Visit the Facebook website on the computer. Now that your computer is connected to your personal network, you should be able to visit any site without restriction (as long as your personal data plan does not have any restrictions in place).

Can I get your hotspot so I can get on facebook at school


Most schools enable a firewall to restrict you from visiting inappropriate websites, images or other material. Unfortunately sometimes they block perfectly legitimate stuff, which sometimes you need to access for a school assignment. In these cases, here are a couple tips for bypassing your schools internet security.

Try putting "https://" before the web address, instead of just http://, this works a lot of the time if the website supports it. If your school has not already blocked it, you can go to www.sefreak.com and sign in to the portal using the username student and the password random1 to gain access to a really quick proxy. If your school frequently updates the block-list, and you want to always stay informed about the latest proxy websites, you can sign up for a mailing list here: http://www.peacefire.org/circumventor/ If you have access to your own computer, consider computer programs such as UltraSurf or HotSpot Shield which help get around internet censorship. For the more technologically-inclined, you can set up your own proxy server using a running computer connected to the internet at home, or using Google Apps: http://lifehacker.com/5484934/run-your-own-free-proxy-through-the-google-app-engine

My computer at work wont let me go to websites


You don't. The Administrator of the company computers has internet access set to block certain websites.
You can't access Administrator level settings, therefore you cannot change them.

Should you somehow change them, the IT department will catch it in no time.

Internet Explorer cannot display web page


a couple things I've seen
- first the address as posted is invalid (can't find) but if you insert a dot (.) between parents and brickshools then it finds it (http://parents.brickshools.org/)

- if the corrected address is correct it looks like the site is redirected to a secure connection (https vs. http) and then the problem is that the site owner's security certificate has several problems as follows:

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority. The security certificate presented by this website has expired or is not yet valid. The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address. these issues were presented to me by Internet Explorer v7.0 - the main address functions (http://brickschools.org/) so it definitely seems to be a security certificate issue on their end. I would speak with the site owner. btw, I'm coincidentally in Toms River :)

Unblock blocked websites


It depends on where you're at and how they are blocked. Generally the solution is to set up a proxy server that is not on a blocked network that you can access from over the internet. For example, if you have AT&T U-verse internet at home, at to access MySpace from work, where it's blocked. You could set up a proxy on your home computer, configure your AT&T router to pass traffic from the internet to that proxy, and then from your work computer, you would configure your browser to use your home computers IP address as a proxy. What this does is routes all traffic from your work computer to your home computer. If you utilize SSL for this connection, it's 100% encrypted and your employer only sees you accessing your home computer, they can't see what data is passing between.
