How to Access Facebook Securely at Work

Many workplaces restrict access to social media platforms like Facebook to improve productivity and minimize distractions. Network administrators achieve this by employing website filtering tools. These tools can block access based on domain names (e.g., facebook.com) or IP addresses (unique numerical identifiers for devices).

Step 3: Configure your device to use the proxy server.

How you set up the proxy depends on what kind of device you have and its operating system. Here’s a breakdown for the most common ones:


  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Click on “Network & internet”.
  3. Look for “Proxy” and click on it.
  4. Under “Manual proxy setup”, turn on “Use a proxy server”.
  5. In the “Address” field, enter the proxy server address from your chosen list.
  6. In the “Port” field, enter the port number from your list.


  1. Open “System Preferences”.
  2. Click on “Network” and choose the name of your Wi-Fi network.
  3. Click the “Advanced” button.
  4. Select the “Proxies” tab.
  5. Check the box next to HTTP Proxy.
  6. In the “Address” field, enter the proxy server address from your list.

Mobile Devices:

Setting up a proxy on a phone or tablet can be trickier because there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.

Here are two options to find instructions for your device:

  1. Look for a section on Wi-Fi or network settings. 
  2. Do a quick web search for “[your device model] + configure proxy”. For example, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S22, you could search for “Samsung Galaxy S22 configure proxy”.
