My Methods to Bypass School Filters

My Methods to Get Around School Filters

These are all the methods that I know of to get around school filters on my school Chromebook. The methods shown may not work for you. It took me months to discover all of this, and I want to share it with the world.


1. Use a VPN.

Seriously. I don't know why the school didn't block it, but it allow you to get onto pages that are blocked by the school's network.
1. Go to https://VPN-Gate-Mirors-Scraper.uniqueostrich18.repl.run, or skip to step 4 and use this IP:
2. Go to any one of the mirrors of VPN Gate that are provided.

  1. Scroll down and pick a VPN server that has a high speed. Note that the speed listed is the theoretical maximum. Also, you might want to open the image below in a new tab.

  1. Go to the settings app and click on "add connection," then "Add OpenVPN/L2TP"

  1. Enter in this info: You might want to open the image below in a new tab to see the content better.

  2. Hit "Connect"

  3. If it didn't connect, find a new IP, or reboot your Chromebook

2. Use onworks.net VMs

This one allows you to view ANY WEBSITE, but is very laggy. Also gives you access to a Linux PC.
1. Go to https://www.onworks.net/os-distributions/ubuntu-based/free-ubuntu-online-gnome
2. Whitelist the site on your adblocker
3. Hit "Run Online"
4. Wait for it to load
5. Open Firefox
6. Enter in the url

3. Use an Android Emulator

This one allows you to view websites and watch youtube. Very, very, laggy.
1. Go to https://www.apkonline.net/free-android-online-emulator
2. Hit "Run Online"
3. Wait for it to load
4. Open Google Chrome
5. Go to the blocked website

4. Use a Proxy Site and a VPN

This one isn't laggy for once. It only works on proxy sites blocked by the network, which seem to be all of them for me.
1. Set up the VPN as done in method #1
2. Go to a proxy site such as filterbypass.me
3. Go to the blocked website

5. Use my Proxy

Note: Some pages may be broken.
1. Go to https://Proxy-Site-V1.uniqueostrich18.repl.co/
2. Enter in the url and hit "Submit"

6. Use Browserling

The demo only allows use for 3 minutes.
1. Go to https://www.browserling.com/browse/win/7/chrome/75/http%3A%2F%2F
2. Enter in the url

7. Use a Browser on Repl.it Servers

If you don't have the hacker plan, then it's EXTREMELY SLOW.
1. Go to https://sites.google.com/a/pleasantonusd.net/unblock-all-sites/ for instructions.

Wait! The school can still know what I'm doing!

Well, there are some ways to fix that. Credit to @AdCharity for alerting me to some of this. https://repl.it/talk/learn/Bypassing-School-Restrictions/24573

1. Use a bookmarklet to erase tab history

This one's really simple. Just select the code below and drag it to your bookmarks bar. Then click it on a website to delete the history and replace it with google.com or drive.google.com.
Google version:

javascript:(function() {window.location.replace("https://www.google.com"); })();

Google Drive Version:

javascript:(function() {window.location.replace("https://drive.google.com"); })();

2. Use a bookmarklet to change the tab title and icon.

Drag the code below into your bookmarks bar and click it to change any tab's title and icon to Google Drive. No one will ever guess it is something else. It refreshes every second.

javascript:function gcloak() { var link = document.querySelector("link[rel*='icon']") || document.createElement('link');link.type = 'image/x-icon';link.rel = 'shortcut icon';link.href = 'https://ssl.gstatic.com/docs/doclist/images/infinite_arrow_favicon_5.ico';document.title = 'My Drive - Google Drive';console.log(document.title);document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(link) };gcloak();setInterval(gcloak, 1000);

3. Purposely crash your Chromebook

This one is a last resort to give you an excuse and to close your tabs quickly. Just go to one of these pages when using Chrome:

  • chrome://restart
  • chrome://quit

Thank you for reading this guide; it took me over an hour to write.

EDIT: For bookmarklets, you must copy the code and paste it into the url of the new bookmark popup, or you can select and drag the code into your bookmarks bar.

what a unique collection of stuff (ngl I wasn't going to share anything but)

my collection of seriously insane bookmarklets

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@PDanielY what does it do, and how do you do that

and please upvote

AdCharity (1345)

@UniqueOstrich18 disabling links is easy though just loop through all a elements on the page and set their href to ""

AdCharity (1345)

@LiamDonohue those are like normal bookmarks we're talking about bookmarklets

LiamDonohue (295)

AdCharity (1345)

@LiamDonohue EDIT: For bookmarklets, you must copy the code and paste it into the url of the new bookmark popup.

What are the vpn gate things used for? Also how do you do the first one lol im a noob at this @UniqueOstrich18

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@SilentShadowBla The VPN Gate thing is used for finding vpn servers. Also, what do you mean by, "finding the first one?"

SilentShadowBla (545)

i meant using the first one, that is the only one that confused me but all the others are gr8 thx for this! @UniqueOstrich18

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@SilentShadowBla I know that the first one is hard to set up, so I updated it and added images.

Your proxy is marked as "Dangerous" on chrome. :(

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@bobjeffco Its because it doesnt support https. Its not a big deal.

Kirit0 (23)

when i try to run your code for step number 1, it has an error saying something like no module named bs4. :( plz help if ur still active

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@Kirit0 Its because python2 isnt supported by replit anymore. This stuff is really old and not likely to work.

Kirit0 (23)

how much would it take for you to help update this? or at least the step 1. I am very fluent in python, but the error here is that i dont know anything at all about this python module. :( @UniqueOstrich18

Rough tough question! But instead its great!

First I entered all of the info correctly and named it VPN, I waited for it to connect, but then it said "Failed to connect to network 'VPN': Internal error. So now when I just choose the add VPN option, at the bottom it says, "Internal error". Any way to fix this?

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@TrevorDwyer If that happens, you just have to reboot. If it doesn't work after a reboot, then try a different server.

TrevorDwyer (0)

@UniqueOstrich18 It is still not working even after selecting a new server, what should the options under Nerwork and Proxy be when configuring the created vpn?

Bypass through Mobile can make school filters easier and effective

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@Martinluther Dude, stop spamming these nonsensical messages with shady offsite links.

Martinluther (0)

@UniqueOstrich18 OK, I will take care next time. Peace.

Martinluther (0)

And these list of actual scoring, must be going through bad times

Martinluther (0)

This can be fruitful, but in case if it does not work, then I have this

Someone69 (0)

All of them are blocked for me

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@Someone69 It may be that your school blocks all websites with "proxy" or "VPN" or "unblock" in the url. In that case, I can't do anything. But the bookmarklets should not be blocked.

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@pinoysteleserye Bruh stop spamming; I don't care about you profiles.

UniqueOstrich18 (310)

@pinoysteleserye Why is your only purpose to advertise a TV piracy site?
