People who need to access blocked sites but don’t have the money to purchase a separate VPN connection can use proxy websites. Proxy servers are used to translate traffic to these websites, which offer a fast and easy way to access blocked content.
Proxy servers act as intermediaries, translating traffic and then receiving it from another destination. The proxy server acts as an intermediary, allowing you to access a website via proxy. Traffic flows first through the proxy server and then on to the destination.
As the traffic flows through the unblocked proxy server, you can access blocked websites. There are many proxy sites you can use. We’ll be looking at seven of the best.
KProxy is a great free proxy site that you can use. This proxy site is the most popular because it doesn’t cost anything.
It’s not necessary to install an application or extension. However, there are extensions available for Edge, Chrome and Firefox. KProxy hides your identity by changing your IP address while sending traffic to the internet.
This proxy is a good choice if you need to bypass geo-blocking restrictions. It can be used to bypass school firewall.
This is the best way to surf the internet anonymously without spending money on a VPN. However, the free plan comes with a lot of annoying ads.
KProxy provides decent encryption as a free proxy. If you want to hide your IP address, this is a good choice. It won’t stream content seamlessly, especially with the free version.
KProxy Pro is a paid plan that costs $5. You get access to premium servers and faster bandwidth. You won’t find any ads on the Pro plan.
You can quickly and easily change your IP address using Whoer, a VPN provider. This is a great way to surf the internet anonymously.
Whoer, however, is a little different than other proxy sites in this list. It doesn’t provide services in every country. To change your DNS and IP, you will need to download the anonymizer tool.
You can’t simply type the URL of the website into the address bar to change your IP. To use the service, you must download its tool. You can download extensions for Firefox, Chrome and Opera.
The free service also throttles your speed. To fully unlock its potential you will need to subscribe to the VPN service.
Users can also get a 30-day money back guarantee from Whoer. You won’t be able to stream videos or load rich content with the free service.
HMA was a popular proxy site back in the day. Although it started as a free proxy site, HMA eventually launched a VPN service with paid plans. Although the company has had its fair share privacy problems, it is still trying to recover its former glory.
Although it offers relatively low speeds, servers are often overloaded due to its popularity. HMA hides your IP address and encrypts your web traffic as you would expect from a proxy. It does however display a lot of ads which reduces the screen real estate by 65 percent while you browse.
It throttles your speed to encourage you to purchase the premium VPN service. You can also get a free web proxy extension. It doesn’t allow you to unblock Netflix or any other streaming site using its proxy. However, it can be used with its standalone VPN which comes with a seven day free trial.
Zyte (formerly Scrapinghub) is a smart web proxy and web-scraping solution that businesses can use. This proxy site is different than other ones on the list because it was designed for people who have a good understanding of the web.
Zyte offers its own proxy services that can be used to bypass geo-filters. To make the API work seamlessly, you will need to integrate it with your existing infrastructure. Zyte offers four plans starting at $29/mo, and ending at $999/mo with the Enterprise version.
GeoSurf can be used to bypass geo-restrictions and is similar to Zyte. Because it uses rotating proxy managers, enterprises can use it to scrape the internet.
GeoSurf has over 2,000,000 IPs in more than 2,000 locations. This includes static IPs. GeoSurf offers proxies starting at $450 per month, and ending with $2,000 per month.
Anonymouse was launched in 1997 and still looks much the same as a website from the 1990s. After you choose your language, you will see a page that displays the VIP pricing. It starts at $6 per month. You get faster speeds, no ads and increased download limits.
Anonymouse is a basic proxy you can use for opening blocked websites. The free version does not support encrypted connections. For websites that start with “HTTPS”, it is necessary to subscribe to its VIP service.
Hideoxy is an alternative free online proxy. However, it is not always reliable. Some websites won’t even open.
It is very basic and contains many advertisements. Hideoxy may be a good choice if you need to create a static website (e.g. a blog blocked by your provider). It doesn’t offer much else.
Protect Your Identity Online
Protecting your identity online is important. You can mask your IP address on public networks. A fake IP address protects your identity and protects your personal information from being stolen by malicious actors.
