Top 6 IP-Masking Applications For Easy Access To Blocked Sites


We cannot help but live with the reality that some freelancing sites will never give room for non-native writers. This is so discriminatory considering that Non-Natives can also embark on freelancing tasks even better. The good thing is that you can still access sites that bar Non-Native writers.

For the last couple of years, a good number of proxy applications have been introduced in the market. The prime role of these applications is to aid in masking the IP address of a certain surfer hence giving them access to any site (even the blocked ones). Some of the applications are designed in such a manner that you can simply alter your IP address instead of masking it completely.

Without further ado, checkout some of the IP-Masking (proxy) software you can use to access Natives-Only freelancing sites:

  1. Zenmate

I personally use this software in accessing some of the hard-to-crack freelancing sites. It is very reliable and that is one of the things that I love it for. To be precise, I use Zenmate 3.8. With it, I can change my browsing location to US and other western countries.

It is important to note that this proxy software comes as an extension for Google Chrome Browser. It is also available for Mozilla Firefox and Safari Browser. Another important note is that Zenmate is compatible with all Windows versions and Mac OS. Download Zenmate here.

  1. Tor

Though not so reliable, Tor is ranked among the preferable proxy software for those willing to mask their IP addresses. This software masks the IP address of the surfer completely. It is more of a Mozilla Firefox extension, although it is downloaded independently. The problem is that tor may leak your personal information including surfing location. Download Tor Browser Here.

  1. Hide My Ass

I do not know if you wish to hide yours (ass), lol! On a serious note, Hide My Ass is one of the well-known proxy software. You can opt for a paid version or better still go for the free option. The most reliable version in this case is the paid one. However, this does not mean that the free version of HMA cannot help in masking your IP address. It is just that there are some features absent in the free version. Download Hide My Ass Proxy here.

  1. GTunnel

This is one of the long-time proxy applications. It is considered ideal for GTalk and Skype. However, it can still be activated in your personal computer to give room for private browsing. One of the advantages that come with this proxy application is that traffic contents are encrypted such that any censorship done on it will not reveal everything in clear texts. Both English and Chinese languages are supported by this proxy application. Download GTunnel here.

  1. Hotspot Shield

Surfing anonymously has never been this easy, thanks to Hotspot shield proxy application. It is very versatile since it supports a number of languages including English, Chinese, Arabic, Russian among others. You can either opt for the free version of this proxy or go for the premium one.

The problem with free version of Hotspot Shield is that you will be receiving a lot of ads on your browser. This can be irritating. Premium version is fully immune to ads. Download Hotspot Shield Proxy here.

  1. Freegate

Most users of this proxy software are based in China. However, this does not imply that it cannot be used in other parts of the world. The software works well in giving access to blocked sites including those based in UK and US. Its role is to permanently hide your IP address. Download Freegate here.


Now you know some of the proxy software that you can use to sign up to sites that bar Non-Native writers. All you need is to ensure that the proxy is activated before you begin the signing up process.
