How to Unblock Websites on Google Chrome at School or College

You want to unblock websites on Google Chrome at school or college? You do have a right to.  Web filters in school are probably the most ridiculous form of censorship available. Same with some Collages. China does not even compare at times.

You want to translate something on Google Translate because you don't understand something which would be the case when you are learning? You can’t. Instead you might need to use a physical dictionary which you will never ever use in real life.

Why Being Able to Unblock Websites on Google Chrome at School or College Is a Good Idea

Needed Content Is Almost Always Blocked

  • You are 18. It’s your last year in school. You turn on your laptop. You connect it to the school Wi-Fi. You are doing a project on sexual abuse. A completely normal topic that should in fact be discussed more often in schools and some colleges. You need to get information. But you can’t as it’s not possible because your school is preventing you from accessing a website that has the term “sexual” in it. As if it is dangerous to see it.

Content That Will Be Seen Anyway Is Being Blocked

  • A student will see what they are not meant to see either way. Logically speaking, web filters do not prevent a student from discovering anything on the internet. Matter of fact, seeing a site is banned might make somebody more curious to access it or similar sites when they are connected to networks without web filters, which one will more than likely be connected to anyway.

College Students Suffer on Their Lifestyle

  • College students also need entertainment. Imagine this. You are living in a dorm. You are connected to Wi-Fi provided by your college or university. Your favorite entertainment platform such as Netflix is blocked. How is that justified? Is that an attempt to make somebody drop out? Everybody needs to relax from time to time.

The blocking of sites doesn’t make life easier. It often makes it harder. Things like YouTube do more help than good. Luckily there is a way to get past any blocks you might face.

How to Unblock Websites on Google Chrome at Work & School

Web filters generally are atrociously bad at filtering.

But what if you eliminated the whole “web filter” thing out of the equation? If there’s no web filter, then there’s nothing to prevent you from accessing whatever site you want to access, right?

Well, if encryption is involved along with a change of an IP address, then a web filter is basically removed from the equation. A web filter placed by your school or college might still be there, but it won’t be able to see what sites you will be accessing because what you are doing will be encrypted. And a web filter can’t block what it can’t see.

How do you get encryption? You use a VPN. A VPN is a virtual private network which like the name suggests is virtual and private. If you want to unblock websites on Google Chrome at school or college, you can. With a VPN. Matter of fact, the web browser doesn’t even matter.
