Freegate – Gateway To Free Internet

Various countries are restricting certain websites and apps due to their reasons. But, being a user, you may need to access those websites or apps for some work purposes. So, what you can do? This article is all about that…

Are you struggling to get rid of your browsing restrictions? Do you get frustrated with a big list of blocked websites? So, you would need a perfect application to load the websites that are not allowed to access, am I right?

How do you feel, if you get a free tool to bypass your IP restrictions on the general browsing? How about having a simple-to-use tool for secure and fast internet access to blocked sites?

From time to time I keep hearing that certain countries have blocked some websites. For example, China has blocked so many websites such as Google, Facebook, and many more. But, many users from there need to use some services that everyone else uses in the world. For example, we have a few clients from China, and they used Gmail even though it was blocked there. They do it because their work is worldwide and most of the population uses Gmail. So, they used VPN or some other services to unblock Gmail and use it.

Although VPN is great, I am talking about some other services that can assist you in unblocked browsing, and that is Freegate. You can download Freegate for PC free of cost.

Let’s discuss the key details of Freegate software through this blog post so that you’ll be able to avoid internet limitations. Also, I would like to add the Freegate latest version link at the end of the post, so that you may download Freegate for PC from here itself.

What is Freegate?

Freegate is an anti-censorship software that is used for secure & fast internet connection. Developed by a group called Dynamic Internet Technology, Freegate enables users from countries like China, UAE, Syria, Myanmar, Iran, Vietnam, etc. where the government censors the Internet very strongly (& lately in Pakistan when Twitter was blocked – 20th May 2012).  Freegate is completely free only for the users of China but it is a shareware for outsiders.

Freegate uses a P2P-like proxy network called DynaWeb. It is very easy to install. As soon as the software is installed, Internet Explorer will open with a secure connection through which you will be able to access the blocked websites! If you want to use any other browser then you will have to configure the settings accordingly.

Immediately after installation, Freegate connects to its directory server & downloads the lists of proxy servers that will ensure you establish a secure connection. Once you turn off the Freegate application, the proxies will be cleared off & the blocked websites will be no longer protected by Freegate.


So basically, Freegate is software that has lots of proxy servers which when you use, it uses proxies to connect to you with the blocked website in your region. In that, your IP is changed, and you are able to access websites that are blocked.

Features of Freegate

  1. Freegate is an individual file that is executable on the Windows platform with no installation required.
  2. It has an intuitive interface that can scan for multiple proxy servers and connect to the quickest one.
  3. Having two secure modes, Proxy mode and classic mode is a notable stuff of Freegate with which you can deal with the internet blockade in a better way.
  4. It enables you to access the overseas websites as quick as your local ones.
  5. Its configuration features are handy, and you will be able to delete your browsing history.
  6. If you download Freegate for PC from its latest version, you will get an enhanced anti-censorship capability as it uses the new distinctive encryption and compression algorithm.

Cons of Freegate

  1. Sometimes, you may experience a slow speed connection and can’t unblock some particular websites.
  2. It may be flagged by anti-virus or anti-spyware software.
  3. It is somewhat unstable, and no adult content is encouraged.
  4. Check your country’s rules and regulations regarding the use of Proxy servers. If it is allowed then only use it.

Bottom line

Ankit Fadia, an Ethical Hacker and an independent computer security consultant who has provided cyber security training & solutions to thousands of clients including Google, says that “Freegate is one of the most effective methods of bypassing the Chinese government’s blocking firewall.

And trust me, if it works in China, it will probably work in most countries, colleges, organizations, and in other parts of the world.” Several students, businessmen, and tourists use Freegate during their China visit and enjoy control-free web access.

Note: It could be possible that your country, college, or company would have also blocked the downloading source of Freegate. Thus, you may download Freegate for PC & carry it on a pen drive or other such devices, or keep the software in your mailbox!

I would say that it is a great professional tool for those who need to access restricted websites. Even though its performance depends on the proxy servers you get, I’m sure that it will satisfy your requirements.

I hope that you have gathered enough information about Freegate. What is your opinion about this tool to unblock the blocked websites? Would you like to have a free download of Freegate for PC? Share your views in the comment section.

  • I can’t see the necessity of blocking any social networks, because in any case people will find an opportunity to get an excess to them.

  • I’ve downloaded freegate before and have used it. It is a great program indeed. I think all pakistani can find it useful.

    Thanks Zainil for your post

  • This program is new to me as well, but it looks it was famous before it was posted here. Thanks a lot for sharing such a great software!

  • Governments who are trying to block / censor internet are actually killing freedom of speech. Thanks to proxy apps, they saved us many times!

  • It’s really sad to here how government takes full control of what its people should see/listen. I also heard that Turkey banned Twitter and Facebook. Hopefully, it’s not gonna happen my country. That would be horrible i think. Anyway, thanks for your “FreeGate” recommendation. Maybe it come in handy for me in the future.
