Sites blocked at work

Post by morganb » 23 Jun 2018, 12:28

As you are aware, some companies put web site filters in place to stop their workers accessing certain sites from company machines. I noticed a post on SP4's game regarding this issue.

Recently FISO has been added to this blocked list in my office, as has TFF (but not FPL!) I used to be able to use a different browser to gain access but all routes are now stopped.

Are there any workarounds to allow you to get to blocked sites, other than accessing them via your mobile? Is it safe to put this information on this forum or will companies simply take away any loopholes?

There used to be some proxy websites that enabled you to access it... but I’ve not needed to use one for many years so not sure if such a thing still exists

Obviously your work has blocked it for a reason though, so bypassing it could mean a disciplinary?

The same has happened with me, it’s seems to be due to FISO now being classified as a gambling website.

Is it not just a case of asking those in the know at your relevant work place to "allow" fiso an ok website.

The blocking window does say I can request the site to be unblocked if I have a valid business reason. Perhaps someone on here can propose a convincing reason I can give to have a Fantasy Football Forum flagged as a business site?

Depends on the nature of your company and how big it is - but there are several non-football related forums, and for example I recalled using the tech section for this, which have just resuscitated ..viewtopic.php?f=35&t=82634&start=30
First thoughts though would be chances of advertising for potential clients, if appropriate.
