How to enter Vkontakte from a computer

Unblocking Vkontakte from the computer is available with the help of special extensions that are available to every user. To install them you will need:

  • Open the browser.
  • Go to the settings menu.
  • Find the category “Extensions”.
  • Choose a suitable program and install it on your computer.

Note that there are free extensions that will allow you to remove the blocking of Vkontakte, but they work for a limited time or the transfer speed leaves much to be desired.

Blocking Vkontakte in Ukraine is a common problem, so we offer several ways to solve it. Now we will tell you more about the possibilities of unblocking VK and other sites, access to which was restricted.

Proxy servers

A convenient way to unblock sites is a program to bypass the blocking of Vkontakte. Thanks to modern innovations, programmers have developed dozens of proxy servers that can be downloaded to a device with any operating system.

Upon opening, Exspress VPN program will offer two options for use: registration through an account or a free trial version for 7 days. If you choose the free version, you need to enter your bank card details in order to buy a mobile proxy in the future.

Via Tor browser

Tor is the optimal browser for bypassing Vkontakte blocking. It is a convenient option, as you can not install additional extensions or programs, but simply download the browser to your computer.

To use Tor you need to:

  • go to the official website of the developer;
  • download a licensed browser;
  • once the download is complete, open and start working.

The convenience of the browser is that it has a very convenient interface and navigation, thanks to which the user will quickly connect to the VPN and can set the settings to unblock Vkontakte in Ukraine (if necessary).


You can also bypass the blocking from your computer using the Opera browser, because it already has a VPN, from which you can enter the servers of Europe, Asia, America or select the “Optimal location” function. The minus of the built-in VPN is that the data transfer speed is limited.

When blocked Vkontakte, how to unblock will prompt a simple navigation on the Opera browser. First of all, you need:


Enable VPN, which is located in the settings (on the left side of the screen).


Choose a location from the three options offered.


Go to the desired site and enjoy.


If the vpn unblocking failed, you can change to another server and try again.

So how to make the right choice?

Despite the fact that a good reason for blocking Vkontakte led to the issuance of a law banning access to these sites from Ukrainian servers, users still have the opportunity to use the social network. To make the right choice, you need to evaluate all the advantages and disadvantages of different methods of circumvention:

  • The Opera browser has a built-in VPN, which is convenient for users, since it is absolutely free. However, the disadvantage is the slow download speed and the possibility of blocking some sites.
  • Downloading extensions (like openvpn) to the standard browser is a great idea, as you can choose a suitable application from the list of paid or free ones.
  • Mobile apps are convenient because they work in the background. The disadvantage is that almost all mobile programs are paid, however, they give you the opportunity to use for free for a while.

You can also download the Tor browser, with built-in VPN and use it instead of the main browser. This will allow you to enter any site and not waste time switching between browsers.
