7 Ways To Access Blocked Facebook



Nowadays, social networks as Facebook and Twitter are used by so many users. But in a lot of companies and countries, these social networks are blocked by firewall. For example, you can’t access Facebook in some areas of Vietnam and China. In this article, I will show you 7 ways to access Facebook, Twitter or any blocked site easily.

1. Access by Editing Hosts File

This is a simple way and works very well in Vietnam. After ISPs blocked Google DNS and other ways to access Facebook, you can still access Facebook at its default address by implementing these simple steps:

  • Go to C:WindowsSystem32driversetc
  • Open the Hosts file to edit
  • Add these lines to the bottom:
    153.16.15.71 apps.facebook.com
    125.252.224.88 facebook.com
    125.252.224.88 www.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 login.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 graph.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 static.ak.connect.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 developers.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 error.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 upload.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 register.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 bigzipfiles.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 pixel.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 0.132.channel.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 1.132.channel.facebook.com
    153.16.15.71 error.132.channel.facebook.com

Now, refresh your browser and check if you can access Facebook properly. If it is still blocked, try using Google Public DNS and it should work then.

2. Get your own IP address

You can get a US/UK Proxy or VPN IP address here and it will allow us to access the internet with a UK based IP address instead of current IP address provided by your Internet Service Provider. Therefore, you can access any blocked website with faster speed.

After getting your own proxy or VPN IP address, check out the 4th solution to start using it.

3. Use Proxy/Socks


This is a very popular way to visit any site you want without any restriction. All you need is find a good proxy to use. But when use proxy, your speed can be reduced because of the respond time of proxy server, so you should buy a private proxy/socks for the best quality. All proxies or socks have the same format: 123.123.123.123:1234, with numbers before “:” are ip address, and after that are port. To use it, you need configure your browser as following:

  • Firefox: Tools > Options > Advanced > Networks > Settings > Manual Proxy Configurations > Socks Host.
  • Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet Settings > Connections > Lan Settings > Use a Proxy Server for you LAN.
  • Chrome: Options > Under the Hood > Change Proxy Settings > Connections > Lan Settings > Use a Proxy Server for you LAN.
  • Opera: Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Networks > Proxy Servers.

Then fill IP and port and apply. To remove it, just take it back to default.

Configure Proxy/Socks in Firefox

4. Use Fake IP Software

Some softwares are used for faking and hiding your IP address such as Auto Hide IP, Real Hide IP, Hide IP NG, Invisible Browsing, etc. They still can decrease surfing speed but not significantly.

5. Use UltraSurf

The easiest and fastest way to hide IP and access to any site you want. All traffic will be brought through UltraReach server. So the speed is almost no change. After downloading UltraSurf, you just run it, and an Internet Explorer windows will open for using. You can also use an add-on to use UltraSurf with Firefox. Note: to use in Firefox, you must download UltraSurf, run it and activate in Firefox. UltraSurf is totally free and no need to setup.

6. Use OpenDNS

Open DNS is a free DNS server that offer you DNS resolution for consumers and businesses as an alternative to using their Internet service provider’s DNS servers. By placing company servers in strategic locations and employing a large cache of the domain names, OpenDNS usually processes queries much more quickly, thereby increasing page retrieval speed. DNS query results are sometimes cached by the local operating system and/or applications, so this speed increase may not be noticeable with every request, but only with requests that are not stored in a local cache. First, you need to change network configuration of window:
- With Windows XP: go to Control Panel –> Network and Internet Connections –> Network Connections, right click to Local Area Network and choose Properties. In list This connection uses the following items, choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. In new windows, you click Use the following DNS server addresses, and at Preferred DNS Server, fill 208.67.222.222, and at Alternate DNS Server fill 208.67.220.220. Then OK to finish.
– With Windows Vista or Windows 7, go to Control Panel –> Network and Internet –> Network and Sharing Center > View Status > Properties and the configure as XP.

  10. Thank you for the info. Just wondering though, is accessing facebook (giving your password) safe through a proxy site? I’m just not sure how a proxy site works…

    • Of course, it can’t be safe. You should choose well-known and reliable proxy sites like Proxypass or Defilter. To be more secure, you could use openDNS or proxy/socks available on the Internet.
      Good luck.

  11. thanks a lotz.
