In some countries, your ISP blocks some website such as Faceboom Youtube etc. If you want to browse those websites then you need to use proxy sites or VPN (Virtual Private Network). It creates a secure connection between your computer and the remote server. Your IP address will be hidden.

You can use Free VPN add-on  such as “ZenMate“. You can install this add-on for both Firefox and Chrome. After you install you can see the Zenmate icon on the right corner of the address bar.
