Identify the source of web restrictions. Depending on the source of the web restriction (such as the school network and parental controls), the stringency of the web restrictions will vary:

Public web restrictions applied in coffee shops or on computers with parental controls will sometimes be bypassed by most of the common solutions in this section.

Regional web restrictions apply to some content on YouTube, which often requires a proxy or VPN to access.

School , government , and workplace web restrictions are often so complete that you need to use a proxy or mobile browser. However, you can still try using mobile data to share your computer's network.

Try visiting another version of the website. Some web restrictions block specific web addresses (such as without blocking other versions of that address. You can get around a blocked domain name by using one of the other versions of the address in the following way:

IP Address - If you can find the website's IP address, try entering the IP address in the address bar to bypass web restrictions.

Mobile website - By adding m."www." and the rest of the website address (such as, you can open the mobile version of that website. Mobile versions often have separate blocking settings from regular versions, so some web restrictions still have this vulnerability.

Google Translate - In rare cases, you can go to and enter the website address in the left box, select a new language for the right box, and click the link in the box on the right to open the website in another language.

Use a mobile data connection . If you have an iPhone or Android phone, you can use the "tethering" process to use your phone's data connection as a Wi-Fi network. This method is relatively foolproof, as long as your computer allows you to choose a network connection.

Note, network sharing consumes a lot of mobile data, especially when you download files or watch videos.

Although the reference article mentioned in this section covers network sharing on a laptop, you can still do the same on a desktop computer.

Connect directly to the modem. If you can connect your computer to a network modem via Ethernet, you will bypass most network limitations. Of course, you shouldn't do this if you don't have modem access.

Modems are often different from routers. If your Internet connection uses a combined router/modem, this method will not work for you.

This method is more effective for home Internet connections than for school, work, or public connections.

Use a virtual private network (VPN) . If you can edit your computer's network connection (such as being allowed to choose Wi-Fi networks), you can also change your computer's settings to use a VPN. However, remember that you need to choose and pay for a VPN service before you can use the VPN.

VPNs can be used on most mobile platforms (such as smartphones or tablets) and computers.

One free VPN option is Hotspot Shield. If you can download and install Hotspot Shield on your current computer, you can simply turn on the program without changing your computer's settings.

Use the free Proxy service

Learn about proxies. A proxy is actually a miniature version of a VPN that is only applied to the browser tab you have open.

However, similar to other websites, proxies can also be blocked. Besides, it will be difficult for you to find a proxy if websites block all searches with the word "proxy" or "proxies".

If you can't use a proxy on your computer, the only way you can do it is to use a mobile browser.

Browse the website as usual. The website you want to visit will display normally on the restricted computer, but it may take longer to load because of the location of the proxy server.

Use a mobile browser
