How to Unblock the Proxy

Many institutions, schools, libraries and homes use proxy filters to block different types of websites. Usually, websites are blocked for reasons like having too much traffic, taking too much bandwidth or because the content displayed in the website is inappropriate. On the other hand, it is also common for proxy filtering software to block websites that offer good and relevant content, preventing users from accessing important Web pages.
