Solution: Find A Free Anonymous Web Proxy

I Can't See the Video, It's Blocked!

A free anonymous web proxy site allows any web browser to access other third-party websites by channeling the browser’s connection through the proxy.  The web proxy basically acts as a middleman between your web browser and the third-party website you are visiting.  Why would you want to do this?  There are two common reasons:


    • You’re connecting to a public network at a coffee shop or internet café and you want privacy while you browse the web.  You don’t want the admin to know every site you visit.

    • You want to bypass a web content filter or perhaps a server-side ban on your IP address.  Content filtering is common practice on college campus networks.  This trick will usually bypass those restrictions.


There are subscription services and applications available such as TOR and paid VPN servers that do the same thing.  However, this trick is free and easy to access from anywhere via Google.  All you have to do is look through the search results returned by the queries below, find a proxy that works, and enter in the URL of the site you want to browse anonymously.


    • Examples:

          o inurl:”nph-proxy.cgi” “start using cgiproxy”

          o inurl:”nph-proxy.cgi” “Start browsing through this CGI-based proxy”
