Alternative unblocking methods
Our in-browser proxy technology is truly the most advanced of its kind, however there are inherent limits to what it can do. If you are unable to acccess swagbucks.com using our unblocker above here are some alternative tricks you can try. Please note however that the methods below require that you have administrative privileges on your computer. If you are in a restricted environment you likely won't be able to follow them.
Method 1: Access directly by IP address (using hosts file)
On the Internet computers communicate with each other using numerical identifiers called IP addresses. Before your computer can talk to swagbucks.com server it needs to obtain swagbucks.com's IP address. A great deal of website blockers work by interfering with this process and misleading your computer about what swagbucks.com's IP address is.
To bypass this type of blocking you can configure your computer to always use a predefined IP address when accessing swagbucks.com. In order to do that, you need to edit the so called hosts file. On Windows it's "C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts". On Mac OS X it's "/etc/hosts". Open this file with a text editor (Notepad on Windows, TextEdit on Mac OS X) and append the following lines to it:
220.127.116.11 search.swagbucks.com 18.104.22.168 edge.quantserve.com 22.214.171.124 profileimages.swagbucks.com 126.96.36.199 content.swagbucks.com 188.8.131.52 www.googleadservices.com 184.108.40.206 video.swagbucks.com 220.127.116.11 help.swagbucks.com 18.104.22.168 b.scorecardresearch.com 22.214.171.124 www.quantcast.com 126.96.36.199 app2-cdn2.sbx-cdn.com 188.8.131.52 plus.google.com 184.108.40.206 blog.swagbucks.com 220.127.116.11 youtube.com 18.104.22.168 swagbucks.com 22.214.171.124 fonts.googleapis.com 126.96.36.199 www.facebook.com 188.8.131.52 twitter.com 184.108.40.206 pixel.quantserve.com 220.127.116.11 cdn.gigya.com 18.104.22.168 www.swagbucks.com
(NOTE: Your computer usually needs to talk to several servers to display a modern web page. We have scanned swagbucks.com and built the list of servers it uses which is why there's more than one line in the list above.)
Method 2: Use a VPN
VPN is the most efficient and robust block bypass method, but it might also take you more work to set up and may cost some amount of money. However if you often need to access the net from behind a blocker and care about your privacy and security it's well worth the effort and money.
