Opening blocked sites is a solution that can be tried, especially when you want to access crucial important sites. Moreover, if WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, YouTube and other major sites are completely blocked by Kominfo.
Some government-blocked sites are generally suspected of containing malicious elements such as adult content, gambling, and others.
Until now, opening blocked sites has been considered an illegal act and against government regulations. However, there are still some useful sites for non-adults like Reddit and Vimeo.
Well, if Facebook or WhatsApp is blocked by the government, how do you access it? Here, Jaka shares tricks on how to access blocked sites without and using an application. Is it really doable? Check out the full review here, come on!
1. Using Proxy Sites
Here ApkVenue uses a site called CroxyProxy as it is considered lighter and more stable to use for Android and iOS. Here are the steps.
- Visit the CroxyProxy site (https://www.croxyproxy.com/).
- Enter the link of the website blocked by the server that you want to visit in the field provided.
- Tap the Go! .
- Wait for the site to appear.
If your mobile's memory or RAM is almost full and you can't add a VPN application, using the above HP Google Chrome can be an alternative.
2. Using SSH
You can also access blocked sites using SSH (Secure Shell). SSH serves as a network that protects the data exchange from virus threats.
Both VPN and SSH have almost the same characteristics. The difference is that you are using a third party here, especially for the SSH Tunneling process.
To use the SSH method, you can really directly use an Android mobile. The method is quite simple and you can follow it as follows.
Open the FastSSH site, select the Indonesian server (https://www.fastssh.com/page/secure-shell-servers/continent/asia/indonesia).
Tap Create SSH Account Indonesia.
Create an account by entering your username and password.
Click Create Account.
Write down the SSH username, SSH password, and IP address of the host.
First install the KPNTunnel Revolution application.
Open the KPNTunnel Rev app > Settings > enable SSH Tunnel.
Scroll down and enter the format you noted earlier in the Host/IP section.
Enable Auto Reconnect and enter the Pinger URL with "www.bing.com".
Enable Custom DNS and use the default settings in the application.
Go back to the main page.
Tap Start to start using SSH.

4. Using Google Chrome VPN Extension
In addition to using proxy sites, you can also use a VPN extension on Google Chrome to unblock sites. The good thing is that this extension does not require any space for installation.
Earlier, ApkVenue had written an article about recommendations for 10 free and best VPN Chrome extensions you can use. You can choose from the following articles:

5. How to Access Blocked Sites with Google Translate
You didn't read it wrong, gang! Yes, we can use this foreign language translation site from Google to access blocked websites without installing additional applications.
Unfortunately, the way to access this blocked site can only be done from a PC or laptop, not from a mobile phone. Curious how? Come on, check out the steps below:
Open the Google Translate site from the browser application on the PC.
Choose Indonesian to English or whatever.
Type the blocked site you want to visit.
Click on the linkbox icon that appears, wait for the site to open.
6. Open Blocked Sites with a DNS Server
The way to access blocked sites without any other applications on your laptop or PC is to use DNS on your laptop. Here are the steps:
Open Network Settings in Control Panel.
Go to Network & Internet > Network and Sharing Center.
Right-click Connection > Properties.
Click Properties TCP/IPv4 .
Click Use the following DNS servers.
Manually type in the Google DNS server ( 126.96.36.199; 188.8.131.52 ).
Click OK to save and exit.
Now you can use Google's DNS servers. Sites blocked by ISPs are now available for you to view.
7. Access Blocked Sites with an IP Address
It is possible that the blocked site is a uniform resource locator (URL) rather than an IP address. If so, you can access the blocked site using the IP address.
To access a site through this method, simply find its IP address and copy it to your browser. So, how do you find a site's IP address? Here's a quick way:
Tap the Windows key + R on the keyboard.
Type cmd and click OK.
Command prompt appears.
Type ping followed by blocked websites. For example, ping website.com, press Enter.
The IP address of the web will appear.
Copy and paste the IP address into the browser.
There is also a possibility that not only the URL will be blocked, but also the IP address of the related site.
8. Opening a Site with a Wayback Machine
The next way to access a blocked site without an application is to use the Wayback Machine. It is a digital archive site that stores several previous versions of the site and then presents it to users.
You can choose the available version of your favorite site, watch videos and listen to audio that is not available now, but is stored by the Wayback Machine. Here are the steps.
Go to the site https://archive.org/web/ .
Enter the address of the blocked site in the search field.
