Some countries and workplaces have blocked Youtube either permanently or for a limited period. The motivations for blocking Youtube may be political related or may simply be the result of the management trying to control productivity. Either way we think it is wrong. Luckily for us we have a way around the problem. Here is how to unblock Youtube.
VPN stands for virtual private network and it basically connects your machine to a server that acts as a middleman between you and the website you are trying to access. When you are connected to a VPN server then your data is routed trough this remote server and all of sudden you will be able to
circumvent the restrictions placed upon your connection.
Before you can connect to a VPN server based abroad you need to have an account with a provider. The most affordable and reliable provider on the market is Hide My Ass. The 6 and 12 month packages have the best discounts, but you can also just test out the 1 month package.
Once you sign up you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to connect to the VPN service. Basically you have to install a small program for either Mac or PC and the connection is set up. No skills required.
