Parents establish parental controls at home through the use of filtering software such as Net Nanny and SmartFilter. These products are developed to block inappropriate and potentially harmful Web content; however, occasionally websites that are both useful and harmless may also become restricted through the parental blocks. Generally, Internet users use proxies to bypass parental blocks, but you can also get past these pesky blocks by using a VPN (virtual private network), which functions as a tunnel to a server that does not block any Web content.
- Skill level:
Use the SecureNetics.com VPN to get past parental controls without using proxies (see Resources). This VPN replaces your IP address with another IP, so your identity is protected and secure while you anonymously browse the Internet without restrictions and regain the ability to chat online and visit social networking sites like YouTube and Facebook. With SecureNetics, you have no risk of your computer being hacked into or having your identity stolen by an Internet hacker. There are four versions of the SecureNetics VPN offering features like anonymous e-mail, secure anonymous surfing and access to the standard network. These VPN account options require a monthly or yearly service charge that comes with a 3-day money-back guarantee.
Operate the VPN Privacy virtual private network on your operating system to bypass parental blocks without proxies (see Resources). VPN Privacy allows Web users to bypass restrictions and browse the Internet uncensored through the secured VPN server. With the use of this VPN server, Internet surfers can utilise anonymous Web downloading abilities, unlimited bandwidth and regain the access to browse any website. You may order any one of five VPN services that differ by access duration, ranging from a week, a month, three months, six months or up to one year. Depending on your need for unrestricted anonymous browsing, you may opt for the one week account as a trial, or the longer term accounts if you have ongoing needs for unrestricted anonymous Web browsing.
