Websites are blocked in many different places. Not just Asia and The Middle East block sites for political and religion reasons, but even in western countries there are a number of places that websites may be blocked by firewalls. Work and school are pretty obvious ones, but even on public access networks like cafes, hotels, and airports, you may find that some sites are not accessible. Of course, your those "dangerous" websites (promoting violence, drugs, sex, or terrorism) will typically get blocked, but sometimes simple entertainment sites won't be accessible. There is also the possibility that some sites get banned in error - the banning process may be done by keyword, which is not always efficient. There are ways to bypass blocked sites for free.

If it is your networks firewall that is blocking the content you want to access, using an open proxy will typically work. All the most popular browsers - Chrome, Firefox, Opera, IE, and Netscape all have anonymous browsing settings. Though the way to access these settings will vary, its usually pretty easy to find them with a tutorial on YouTube or blog search. Anonymous surfing options will ask for two things - and IP address, and a port number.

The IP address and port number can be found on "proxy lists" which can also be found with a Google search (or Yahoo and Bing if you're a hipster). Depending on your source for the proxy list, there are different methods of organizing proxies. One example would be Hide My Ass which lists proxy IP addresses based on region, and level of anonymity among other credentials. From this list, you can choose an appropriate proxy. Usually, the most desired locations would be developed western countries who have fewer Internet censorship laws and faster connection speeds. Some good locations to start with would be The USA, Canada, The UK, The Netherlands, and Germany, but there are of course other possibilities.

Once you enter the proxy IP and port number into your browser, your online traffic is then filtered through the proxy server. Remember, that the closer the server is to your real location, the faster your connection will be.

Because the nature of open proxies is dynamic, you'll find that one proxy you use today, might not be available tomorrow, so you'll have to keep up to date and 'go with the flow' - frequently changing IP's as the access to various proxy servers change. If you're going to bypass blocked sites for free, you're going to have to invest some time into finding good proxies.

As always, you should be aware that by connecting to a proxy server you're sharing your IP data with the proxy administrator which may be a security risk. The best solution to this is to join a premium proxy network, but this of course requires a monthly fee. Depending on the frequency of your anonymous surfingArticle Search, this may or may not be worth your cash.
