Flickr Logo

Internet censorship in countries like Iran, UAE, China and Saudi Arabia is inevitable. Their government controls the Internet traffic themselves and most of the sites like YouTube, Flickr, Orkut, Hi5 etc are banned there.

However this does not keep people from inventing new tools and utilities to unblock and bypass the Flikcr ban.

Hamed Saber is one such Flickr fan from Iran who has developed a Firefox extension called Access Flickr to help you bypass the Flickr ban in your country. This way you will be able to access Flickr normally without any restrictions or limitations and you won’t have to search anymore for proxies too.

Access Flickr will let you upload and share photos on Flickr even if you live in a country like Iran, UAE, China, Saudi Arabia etc where normally Flickr is banned. Make sure you have the latest version of the Firefox Browser to get this addon working.

Just install the extension and restart your browser. There is no configuration, no menu, no icon. All needed configurations are done automatically. After restarting, you can access, without any restriction!

I am using HappyVPN. I am satisfied as I get VPN protection for my traffic and IP.

I wouldn’t really recommend the free proxy services, go for a professional company who cares about their customers and profits.

They work great, just enter the desired web address and it will take you there.

I checked out your page but it talks of using external sites as proxies. Not comfortable letting my login info go through those sites.
