How to Find a Proxy for Facebook

A proxy is a sever which you use to access a website or software application. When you access a website, such as Facebook, through a proxy server, your personal information is protected because it appears as if the proxy is accessing the website instead of yourself directly. Your location, IP address and information about your computer remain private.

This article will help you to find a proxy for Facebook.

  1. Find a proxy server on the Internet. Many free proxy servers are available on the Internet via websites. BypassForever is a popular proxy website that allows you to access Facebook. Facebookoxy is another one, which even specializes in Facebook.
  2. Access Facebook from the proxy server. Type the Facebook URL into BypassForever or Facebookoxy and hit the "Go" button. Facebook will open inside a frame loaded by the proxy server.
  3. Use Facebook as normal. Once Facebook has loaded on the proxy server, you can browse, communicate and download applications just like normal. All features remain available and your identity is safe from potential hackers.
  4. Go to Facebook using a proxy when Facebook is blocked. One of the most common reasons for using a proxy to access Facebook is to get around firewalls at universities, work offices and public computers that sometimes block Facebook. By using the proxy you can still access Facebook even if it's blocked.
