Web unblockers aren't some new space age invention. They are simply proxy servers, which have been around since the beginning of the internet, when the wise founding fathers of the Web knew that some people would require anonymity, or they would suffer as a result of its' lack.
Web Unblockers Can Help You Regain Lost Access
The primary use of a website unblocker is to let banned users gain access to a service. Notable examples include popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter. If for some reason, a network administrator has blocked access to such a site by URL, people logging into the network can generally access the unblocker and then use it to access the social network. This all works great, unless the unblocker websites have also been banned.
A web unblocker can get you back to where you need to be: back on a now unblocked website in order that you can continue to pursue happiness.
- Sends IP address of web server instead of your own. This should help improve privacy.
- Sends server IP, which may not be blocked by a service, allowing you to access the once-banned server.
