Bypass your school's firewall with SurfEasy VPN

If you’ve ever tried to access Facebook or Snapchat in class only to be blocked by your school’s Wi-Fi firewall, you’ll know how annoying internet restrictions can be.

These days, most schools use firewalls to stop their students accessing sites that aren’t used for school activities. A school firewall is designed to prevent access to some websites while still allowing the internet to be used for academic reasons. This means that services like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat are often blocked.

And that’s no fun at all.

Thankfully, it’s not that difficult to bypass a school firewall. In fact, SurfEasy VPN lets you access blocked sites on your computer, tablet or phone. Whatever device you’re using, we support it.

By hiding your IP address and creating a secure, encrypted tunnel between your device and the internet, SurfEasy VPN allows you to bypass firewalls and filters and use the internet feely and without restrictions – meaning that you can Snapchat your way through a boring History class if you really want to (not that we encourage that).

Our Mobile VPN plan is just $2.99 for unlimited usage, but we also know that if you’re a student, you’re likely to be on a budget. That’s why we offer a free VPN account, allowing you to earn more free usage through completing simple tasks like following us on Twitter. Don’t worry; no matter what your budget, we’ve got you covered.

Don’t get stuck behind the firewalls at your school. Get SurfEasy today!

SurfEasy VPN is available for mobile devices at just $2.99 per month. Get started today at
