There are situations in which we want to bypass the restrictions and access blocked websites on our network which could be blocked for any reason but it’s critical to load them at that particular time.
Zenmate proxy for chrome benefits
For example, youtube is blocked in some countries, including Pakistan. Yesterday a very good friend of mine needed to access youtube to learn few methods related to their medical (mbbs) exam today but wasn’t able to do that due to youtube being blocked in Pakistan. This post is dedicated to her :)
How to unblock youtube using Zenmate chrome proxy
So coming back to the point, how to unblock youtube in Pakistan. There are certainly many ways to do that, but the one I recommend here today is very simple one and easy to setup by not so pro with computer people. And above all, it’s free of ads! what a relief ! isn’t it ? It’s by using zenmate proxy on google chrome. In this post we’re going to discuss how to install zenmate on google chrome!
Note: keep the proxy turned off (simple method to do that – in last step of this tutorial) to have good browsing speed on non-blocked websites, as proxy causes loading to slow down as per their server connection and speed.
