Services and services for anonymous access to blocked sites
On July 2, 2013, Roskomnadzor adopted federal law No. 187-FZ, according to which any site containing unlicensed objects of copyright and related rights may be blocked. This law has caused a huge public outcry.
In accordance with the provisions of the law, resources can be blacklisted for just about anything - certain elements on the page, the graphics used, videos and texts.
Users are not ready to refuse to visit their favorite sites and endure stupid proceedings infringing on their constitutional rights. They are increasingly interested in the question - “How to access blocked sites?” , The answer to which is given in this article, which has collected the most simple and clear ways to bypass locks that do not require special knowledge.
A bit of IT support, tips and tools on how to get around blocking a site or gaining access to information in case of partial blocking of sites or censorship. Do not forget to install them today, otherwise it will be impossible later!
Several ways to access blocked sites
Add to the URL “.3s3s.org”
One of the easiest ways is to simply add “.3s3s.org” to the blocked URL.
An example for our site is http://www.shram.kiev.ua.3s3s.org/.
Turbo Browser Mode
The Opera and Yandex.Browser browsers have a built-in turbo function.
If you enable it, then traffic from Internet resources will not go directly, but through an additional server that compresses it. It is clear that it does not correspond to the address of the site, which means that the restrictions of Roskomnadzor no longer apply to the desired resource.
The “turbo” mode is automatically activated when the Internet connection speed is poor, and when it becomes necessary to use it to bypass the locks, you need to perform the following actions:
- for Opera browser - activate the icon in the lower left corner of the window;
- for Yandex.Browser - go to settings, click on the button "Show advanced settings" and check the "turbo" item.
Google Translate has the ability not only to translate entire web pages, but also allows you to access prohibited sites.
To do this, the user needs to enter the address of the desired resource in the translator window, and then click the "Translate" button or follow the link that appears in the right part of the window.
Through Google Translate, most of the blocked sites are opened, but the features of the service - it is intended primarily for translation - sometimes violate the layout of the content of the pages, making the information unsuitable for perception.
You can use Google Translate at http://translate.google.com/.
Search Engine Cache
The databases of the largest and most sought after search engines, such as Yandex and Google , are located abroad.
Accordingly, all resources banned in the CIS are available to their search bots. Information about all sites, including those blocked by Roskomnadzor, is stored in the "cache" - a copy of the site stored on search engines.
Thus, to gain access to them, the user only needs to visit the page of one of the search engines and enter the address of the desired site in the search bar. After that they will be able to see the list of pages and use their "cache".
In Yandex, when you hover over a link just below it, the inscription “copy” appears - this is the very same “cache”.
As for Google, there is a green triangle next to each link - behind it is a "cache".
Using the "cache" may complicate navigation a little, and the information displayed through it may not always be updated in a timely manner.
For unhindered access to the site blocked by Roskomnadzor, you need to add it to the RSS feed of Yandex feeds.
This is done as follows:
- the user registers an account in Yandex or uses an existing one;
- Goes to the site https://mail.yandex.ru/my/#lenta/catalogue;
- on the site clicks the add button;
- In the field that appears, enters the address of the desired resource.
Other RSS aggregators are used for the same purpose:
No less efficient is the RSS-mail service called Blogtrottr - http://blogtrottr.com/.
However, using it to bypass the lock, the address of the desired resource will constantly have to be entered completely. As for LJ, at the end of the address data / rss should be added.
DNS server change
Some providers do not block IP addresses listed in the list of sites.
In this case, you can access the required resource by changing the network connection settings.
The user needs to open the TCP / IP connection settings, click the “properties” button and select “Internet protocol”.
In the window that appears, fill in the fields:
- “Preferred DNS server” by entering the numbers 18.104.22.168;
- "Alternative DNS server", entering the numbers 22.214.171.124.
Before deciding to use this method, it will be necessary to preserve the previous settings without fail - this will help restore the system to normal operation if something goes wrong.
VPNs are technologies that can be represented in the form of a tunnel with a user’s entry point and exit at any selected point in the world.
Inside this tunnel, VPN tools protect, encrypt, and modify the data exchanged between the computer, users, and sites on the network.
From the interpretation of the concept of VPN, it becomes clear that the technology was created to ensure the safe use of the Internet, but it is no less effective in combating the prohibitions of Roskomnadzor.
The exit VPN tunnel identifies the user as a resident of another country, respectively, for him the forbidden sites will not be blocked.
VPN can be used by downloading a paid or free application:
Ways to bypass Roskomnadzor locks for mobile devices and tablets
Almost all of the above applications have analogues that work within the operating systems of mobile devices and tablets .
And they are applied according to the same principle. It follows that Internet users who use mobile devices and tablets to connect simply need to download applications and forget about Roskomnadzor locks forever.
So, iOS apps :
- Google Translate - https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/perevodcik-google/id414706506?mt=8;
- Hola - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hola-mobile/id485623276?mt=8;
- Tunnelbear VPN service - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tunnelbear/id564842283?ls=1&mt=8;
- Google Chrome browser with turbo function - https://itunes.apple.com/app/chrome-brauzer-ot-google/id535886823?mt=8.
Android apps :

- Google Chrome browser with turbo function - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?hl=en&id=com.android.chrome.
Summarizing all of the above, we can conclude that getting around Roskomnadzor’s blocking is not as difficult as it seems at first glance.
It is enough to show a little patience and read about the existing methods of access to prohibited resources, and then use them in practice, making sure on your own how easy it is.
Proxies are designed to redirect traffic through themselves.
If a proxy plugin is installed on the user's computer, he can access blocked resources as follows:
- when you enter a search query, the connection is not with the computer server, but with the proxy server;
- it becomes impossible to recognize the correct address and access is automatically opened.
You can get acquainted with Proxy servers on a separate page .
Anonymizers are Internet services that download the page requested by the user first onto themselves and only then show it.
They are extremely sought after by office workers who want to get around social media locks.
At the same time, anonymizers are great for viewing resources blocked by Roskomnadzor. To open this or that page, the user will need to enter its address in the corresponding field on the anonymizer website.

Plugins friGate, Hola, ZenMate
This is a specialized extension for Firefox and Google Chrome browsers, guaranteeing uninterrupted access to all Internet sites.
Initially, these plugins were created to speed up the loading of pages of Internet resources, but over time it became clear that this extension also makes it possible to access blocked sites.
Get acquainted with friGate, Hola, ZenMate on a separate page .
- for for Firefox - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxyproxy-standard/;
- for Google Chrome - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/foxyproxy-standard/gcknhkkoolaabfmlnjonogaaifnjlfnp?hl=en.
Next, enter the IP address of the proxy server and you can use it.
The proxies themselves can be taken for free on our website .
The full-fledged free anonymous proxy service ProxFree provides access to any type of blocked sites. In addition, he has specialized versions for Facebook, YouTube and adult sites.
On the ProxFree website, you can select the country of the server and the IP address, enter a link to the necessary page and open it as if you were in the Netherlands, France or the USA.
Several settings are available, including disabling cookies and deleting downloaded scripts and objects; fully supported IPv6.
ProxFree is one of the best free services that allows you to open almost any page on the Internet, including those listed in the “ Register of Prohibited Sites ”.
An alternative is the online service and the Stealthy plugin for the Chrome and Firefox browsers, which also works flawlessly with almost any blocked resources.
With it, it is easy and simple to access any of the blocked sites.
Online services for torrent trackers
Especially for access to torrent trackers blocked in certain countries, there are special lists of specialized proxy servers.
For example, proxies for most popular international trackers (say, Pirate Bay or isoHunt) are listed at TorrentProxies .
On the same page you can also find a list of “regular” anonymous web proxies that you can use to visit any pages you have blocked. For all servers, their status is shown - online or offline.
In order to access blocked torrent trackers, you can also configure your browser to use a special PAC file (proxy auto-config), which contains a list of "forbidden" web addresses.
If you enter one of these addresses, the browser automatically sends traffic through one of the proxy servers specified in it. Requests to other addresses are performed as usual.
The creators of the service specifically stipulate that they guarantee that only addresses on the list pass through their proxies - in order to avoid an increased load.
Both applications significantly slow down the connection speed, because your Internet must go through a third-party server, proxy server. This will make it harder to track you, but it makes using Skype and Youtube less enjoyable. Communication will be fast enough to read news, email, write messages and use Facebook.
However, if you do not have any problems, you can disable these programs. In Freegate this is a simple shutdown, while in HotspotShield it is called a pause, but you can choose the option to stammer indefinitely.
My first choice is Freegate , because the application is free and contains no ads.
Download Freegate from here http://us.dongtaiwang.com/loc/download.en.php
Install the program and click yes for all security warnings.
After installation, the Internet Explorer browser window will open. In this window it will be possible to browse sites through a proxy.
In this connection, virtually, your connection will go outside Ukraine!
Hotspotshield is not completely free because it contains ads and an "elite version", but it seems to me that it is more advanced and also supports Firefox.
How to use? Yes, just:
- Go to the website and click “free download” http://www.hotspotshield.com
- Install the program and click yes for all security warnings.
- Let the application reload the browser.
- After the restart, you will use the Internet through a proxy.
These tips are found on the Internet, namely in China. If it works for them - why not try
Using a router
In the case of a complete shutdown of everything (Internet, mobile and TV), to transfer information between each other, we have Wi-Fi. More precisely, one line with the name of the network. We can change it and broadcast it in a radius of 100-300 meters.
Picking up this "flash mob", in a couple of hours it is quite possible to cover the city with the necessary information. Such a transfer method is enough to transfer important information among themselves. To do this, in the browser (opera, firefox, explorer, etc), you need to go to the admin panel of the router at the address 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Next, go to the wireless network settings section (wireless or WLAN). Here, see the "SSID" or the name of your network - and change to the desired message.
Be prepared for the worst, but hopefully there will NOT be one.
