Login to Facebook using proxy server, has been most frequently and proven-in method for accessing blocked websites. Perhaps, you want to catch up with your dearest friends and news from Japan on the devastating earthquake, tsunami, and the nuclear emergency happening right now.
Another good reason is that there is no installation of any unknown programs needed, therefore, minimizing potential threads of malicious virus, spyware or malware. And no coding file necessary or memory hogging.
Above all, its free and safe!
Follow below simple steps that I have concise it. Settings are applicable to only 2 type of browsers on Windows Operating Systems. Namely, Windows Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
Settings For Windows 7:
- Click the “Start” Orb at the bottom left of your computer screen.
- Right above the “Start” Orb, you see “Search programs and files” with the cursor placed on the input box.
- Type “inetcpl.cpl” into the field and press “Enter” to bring up Internet Properties window. (It’s advisable to remember this command that reduced 10 tedious steps before this).
- On the top menu tap of Internet Properties window, select Connections.
- Click on “LAN settings” button located at the lower_right_corner. A new window appears as “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings”, illustration below.
- Check the box “Use Proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)” (Uncheck to resume to original settings)
- Enter the Address and Proxy as show in the illustration below.
- Finish with clicking “OK” to close all windows.
- Start surfing to https://Facebook.com/login.php.
Important: With the above settings, logging in to Facebook.com will prompt you with some security questions. This procedure is necessary for verification on your FB account, as proxy server designated below are from S. Korea. Meaning, you are virtually surfing the internet from that country.
So at the end of the security questions, FB will show the location. Simply click “This is OK” to accept and proceed to use Facebook.com.
Are you already on full access to Facebook.com now? Yes? Isn’t this magical?
Now, you may have some questions right now, such as How proxy server works? Am I surfing on anonymity mode? How the proxy server is being selected and why it is safe to use? Will my password be stolen?
First off, please put all this doubt aside. That specific proxy that you are using is safe and on high-anonymity. You are owning the best options at your own upmost advantage, as mentioned from the beginning. What is there to lose?
However, please follow up with another post to answer the above questions, and feel free to comment and share opinions on this post.
PS: If you are traveling in Vietnam right now, be sure to use it with social responsibility, despite Facebook.com being banned by the official authority. And if you are on public PC, do resume back to its original settings after use.
