Psiphon is an Internet circumvention tool that uses a combination of several technologies to fight online censorship: VPN, SSH, and HTTP proxy.
It’s completely free to use. You can download Psiphon for Windows, Android, and iOS. Similar to a VPN, you just have to connect to a server location where Facebook isn’t blocked.
However, compared to NordVPN, Psiphon supports fewer servers in fewer countries. It doesn’t support Mac, Linux, routers, or 24/7 live chat support.
And you can’t use the cool anti-censorship featured provided by NordVPN (buy here), like staying connected to two VPN servers at once or disguising your VPN traffic to fly under the radar.
We saved this option for last because it’s the least reliable for unblocking the Facebook website.
While a proxy server hides your IP address and offers some level of protection, it’s simply not as effective as a VPN, Tor, or even Psiphon. The encryption isn’t powerful enough.
Although there are numerous free proxy lists that you can find on the web, most ISPs have already identified and blocked them due to government requests.
If you still want to use a proxy server, we suggest checking out Shadowsocks.
To sum up, you can use a VPN, Tor, Psiphon or a proxy server to circumvent government censorship and unblock the Facebook website.
However, there’s no foolproof solution. And you could get in trouble for using any anti-censorship method if it means breaking the law.
