Exploring the Options: How to Access Blocked Websites

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you wanted to access a website but it was blocked, either due to a restricted network like school, work, or public wifi or because the site had banned your IP address? This can be frustrating, but don't worry! There are several ways to bypass these restrictions. In this blog post, we'll take a detailed look at the most common methods for accessing blocked websites, including their advantages and disadvantages.

1. Proxy

A proxy is a server that acts as an intermediary between your device and the website you're trying to access. All the traffic from your device is routed through the proxy server, making it appear to the website that you're visiting it from a different IP address. However, it's important to note that while a proxy can hide your IP, it can still be easily detected by the website through a process known as browser fingerprinting. While the client side integration is simple, most proxy services come at a cost, and free ones often rely on collecting personal data and displaying advertisements in the accessed websites.

2. VPN

VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is one of the most popular ways to bypass IP blocking. It encrypts the traffic between your device and the VPN server and forwards it to the destination web server. There are many reputable VPN providers on the market, with plans starting at a few dollars a month, offering a wide range of servers to choose from.

3. Fingerprint Faker

If you don't need to change your IP address and only want to change your browser, a fingerprint faker extension can be a good solution. This is often used when a device is blocked from accessing a website.

4. Virtual Browser

Our favorite option for accessing blocked websites is a virtual browser, specifically from "Browser in a Box." A virtual browser combines all the advantages of a VPN, proxy, and fingerprint faker into one service. No client-side installation or configuration is necessary, and it can be used with any modern internet browser. A virtual browser is a container located on a server that can be accessed remotely from your current browser, providing you with a new IP address and a new browser fingerprint.


In conclusion, the decision of which method to use ultimately depends on your individual needs and preferences. A proxy or VPN may be a good option for those who stream videos or have limited internet bandwidth for a permanent connection to the server. However, for those who are looking for a simple and all-in-one solution, a virtual browser offers the benefits of all these methods without the need for any installation or configuration.
