How do I get rid of blocked games at school?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

Getting rid of blocked games at school can be a frustrating task, but there are several methods you can try. I’ll provide you with a detailed answer below:

1. Use a proxy: One way to bypass blocked games is by using a proxy server. A proxy acts as an intermediary between your computer and the internet, allowing you to access blocked websites. Simply search for a proxy website, enter the URL of the game you want to access, and the proxy will fetch the content for you.

2. Use the Google cache: If a game website is blocked, you can try accessing it through the Google cache. Search for the game on Google, click on the small green arrow next to the URL, and select “Cached.” This will display a snapshot of the webpage as it appeared when Google last indexed it, allowing you to access the game.

3. Try a URL shortener: Some blocked games can be accessed by using a URL shortener service. These services take a long URL and create a shortened version that can bypass filters. Copy the URL of the game you want to play, visit a URL shortener website, paste the URL, and generate a shortened link. Try accessing the game using the shortened link.

4. Try the IP address: Instead of using the domain name of the game website, you can try accessing it using the IP address. Open the command prompt on your computer (Windows: press Win + R, type “cmd,” and press Enter. Mac: go to Applications > Utilities > Terminal). Type “ping” (replace “” with the actual game website URL) and press Enter. Look for the IP address in the output and enter it directly into your browser’s address bar.

5. Unblock websites in Chrome and Safari: Both Chrome and Safari have built-in options to unblock websites. In Chrome, go to Settings > Privacy and Security > Security > Restricted Sites. Remove the blocked game website from the list. In Safari, go to Preferences > Websites > Pop-up Windows or Content Blockers. Remove any restrictions for the game website.

6. Switch between HTTP and HTTPS: Some websites are only blocked under one protocol (HTTP or HTTPS). Try accessing the game website by changing the protocol in the URL. For example, if the website is blocked under HTTPS, try accessing it using HTTP instead.

7. Use Tor Browser: Tor Browser allows you to browse the internet anonymously and bypass censorship. It routes your internet traffic through a network of volunteer-operated servers, making it difficult for anyone to track your online activities. Download and install Tor Browser, and try accessing the blocked game website through it.

8. Use a VPN: A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the internet. It can help you bypass blocking measures by encrypting your internet traffic and routing it through servers located in different countries. There are both free and paid VPN services available. Install a VPN app or software, connect to a server, and try accessing the blocked game website.

Remember, while these methods may help you bypass blocked games at school, it’s important to respect your school’s policies and only use these techniques if allowed.
