Facebook?? How to access?

I heard FB was banned in Vietnam but there are ways around it.

Also I heard that upscale international hotels such as Intercontinental and Hyatt have access.

I cant seem to access FB anywhere!

The only surefire way is to download Tor browser. I've tried various other methods but this is the only one that currently works for me. Download it here:

https:/…torbrowser.html.en

Once you've downloaded it, run the Tor application & it'll open a browser called Aurora - this is where you access Facebook. As it's built on the Firefox platform it's a little slow & clunky but it works fine.

Actually...... simply changing your DNS server to manual is all you need. Try typing Open DNS in google search and enter the numbers suggested.. There you go.

A smartphone, for all intents and purposes, is just a very small computer in terms of wifi.

Owee - OpenDNS doesn't work on many ISPs now. I can't use it in my office.

Does Google's DNS work? (8.8.8.8).

Usually Host file change works unless they closed that loop hole.

the DNS thing doesn't work for me anymore, but Tor does - it' just really slow unfortunately. Does it depend who your provider is? I'm with vnpt.

With my phone I've never had a problem getting on fb.
