How to Bypass School Filters Without Proxyby Jasmine Carpenter
One way that you can bypass your school's Internet filters without using a proxy is by using a Web-to-email service. There are several different types of services available that you can use to deliver Web pages to your email account. Choose a Web-to-email service that will convert the information on any website, and send you an attachment in PDF format.
Log in to your email account. If you do not have an email account, you will need to create an account with an email service. Choose a free email service, such as Google Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or Web2Mail. Look for the "Create New Account" button on the website's home page and click it.
Type your first name in the "First Name" field. Then, type your last name in the "Last Name" field. Choose a login name and enter the information in the "Login Name" field. Create a password for your email account and enter the information in the "Password" field.
Write down your login name and password for your email account. Continue entering the required information on the Web page for setting up an email account. Click the "Create My Account" button when you're finished. Now, you will be able to send and receive email messages from your free email account.
Compose a new email message. Look for the "Compose Mail" hyperlink near the top of the Web page and click it.
Use a Web-to-email service that will allow you to browse the Internet using your email account. You will be able to access websites and bypass school filters without using a proxy. For example, type the email address "email@example.com" in the "To" field. Next, type the name of the website that you want to view in the "Subject" field. Then, type the website's URL address in the "Message" field, and leave the rest of the message blank.
Log out of your email account. Wait about five to 10 minutes, and log back in to your email account. Look for an email message from the Web-to-email service. Normally, the service will send you a PDF attachment with a layout of the website that you want to view. You can open the PDF file and view the contents online, or download the PDF attachment and read the information at your convenience.
- check You can also use other types of Web-to-email services if you do not want a PDF attachment sent to your email inbox. For instance, Web2Mail uses HTML files. Type the email address "firstname.lastname@example.org" in the "To" field. Then, type the search term or name of the website in the "Subject" field, and leave the body of the "Message" field blank.
