Restrictions on internet access can be frustrating, especially when you're trying to find specific information that's essential for research you're doing or work you're trying to get done. It's common for offices, schools and companies to block websites to reduce distractions, control bandwidth or even to censor content; for example, some schools use internet filters to block access to different types of games and social media websites.

Everyone needs open access to information, but organizations like schools are obligated to protect their students and safeguard their computers against cyber threats. Nevertheless, you might still run into some issues when you try to access information you need and find that your school's system doesn't let you onto the site. Your school's network might have firewalls limiting the websites you can visit, particularly when it comes to playing games. Some websites also block access to certain internet protocol (IP) addresses if they're deemed potential sources of spam requests.

If you want to circumvent these restrictions to play Krunker during your downtime using your computer on your school's network, these are some of the easiest, safest methods to get unrestricted web access.

Use a VPN Service

A virtual private network (VPN) is the safest and most secure way to unblock websites on your school's computers or Wi-Fi network. A VPN provides a secure connection between your computer and a server in another location. Once you connect to a VPN server, all of your communication passes through it. Thus, other third parties can't monitor it.

When you set up this configuration, your online identity (IP address) becomes anonymous. You can choose a new IP address from a list of locations worldwide for easy access to blocked websites like Krunker and limit cyber threats in the process because all your information is kept private.

VPNs provide high levels of security because all data that passes through them are encrypted. That means the data are "scrambled" so hackers can't read or translate them to gain access to personal information. They also offer additional protection against viruses and other malware, thus safeguarding your school's computers.

Use a Proxy

Using a web proxy is a quick and easy solution to unblocking the Krunker website on your school's network. Proxies operate just like VPNs except that they don't provide encryption. They're easier to set up and operate than VPNs but are also detected and blocked easily by your school's internet filters. However, many proxy alternatives are available and can work for you if you're willing to commit some time and search for them.

Several VPN providers offer free anonymous proxies for standard use of unblocking websites. Most of the proxies feature add-ons that allow you to select specific servers and disable cookies or scripts to ensure your browsing is harder to track. Before choosing one of these proxies, bear in mind that using them won't secure your connection or provide any privacy. Some are known to be slow and may interrupt your gaming with pop-up ads, too.

Use a Portable Browser on a USB

Gaining unrestricted access to websites in university libraries with high internet-filtering and file-transfer bans isn't always simple. Your best option to accessing the Krunker website might be running a browser off an external memory device.

Downloadable portable browsers like Mozilla Firefox's Portable edition are intuitive and simple to run. You can download and install extensions easily to expand your access to blocked sites.

Use the Tor Browser

If these techniques don't get you the results you want, then you can try using the Tor browser. It provides anonymity by masking its users' locations so that they can access the internet without censorship. The Tor browser is similar to a VPN or a proxy in that your actual IP address is concealed behind a newly designated IP address. This means you can use Tor to visit Krunker and other websites, even if they're blocked on your school's browsers.

One drawback to using Tor is that it can be inconsistent in terms of speed. It may be too slow to process your game at a playable speed. It's also not compatible with all gadgets like iOS devices. However, if you plan on using a desktop or an Android device to access restricted websites while using your school's internet, the Tor browser is worth a try.
