4. Use a Proxy or Add-On to Unblock YouTube
A proxy is similar to a VPN in that it transfers your data through its server, in order to mask your location. However, proxies are not as secure as VPNs due to the lack of data encryption. Unencrypted data can be accessed by network administrators, ISPs, and censoring authorities, revealing what sites you’ve visited. Furthermore, proxies do not protect your personal data from malicious attacks.
If you’re looking at how to unblock YouTube video using a proxy, there are three ways to do so.
You can use a proxy website, set up your browser proxy manually, or pick a browser add-on. With proxy websites, there are many options available online. They’re easy to use, but you’re going to need to refresh the proxy whenever you visit a new page, which can become quite irritating. Alternatively, you can set up your own proxy manually. It’s not the simplest of tasks as it requires some technical skills. However, once the proxy is configured, you won’t need to refresh it at every page load. If setting up a proxy is not your thing, you can resort to using a browser add-on such as Ultrasurf or ProxTube. You can use such services to toggle between direct connection and several proxies using a toolbar icon. The available choices will vary depending on your device and browser of choice.
