On this page, you will find two methods to access blocked websites on a Samsung phone.

How to access blocked websites on a Samsung phone using a private DNS provider

The steps below work for Samsung phones that have Android 9 and 10.

With this method, you won't need a special app, like a VPN app. You only need to change a simple setting on your phone.

1. Open your phone's settings.

8. Close settings.

9. Open (or restart) your web browser and visit the website that was blocked.

If you still cannot access the blocked website, then you will need a VPN app. If you want a free VPN, then you can use a free VPN app, like Windscribe. Windscribe offers 10GB data per month for free. But if you want more data and speed, and probably also better privacy, then I recommend a paid VPN, like Mullvad or IVPN.

How to access blocked websites on a Samsung phone using the 1.1.1.1 app

The steps below work for Samsung phones that have Android 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.

1. First, you'll need to install the 1.1.1.1 app. So go to the Google Play Store.

2. In the app store, you search for an app called 1.1.1.1.

The first app that should show up is called 1.1.1.1 by Cloudflare, Inc.

3. Tap on the Install button to install the app on your phone.

4. Once the application is installed, you open it.

When you use the app for the first time, you will need to set it up.

After you set it up, you'll only need to tap a toggle button to enable or disable the private DNS service.

5. Tap on Get started button to continue.

6. Tap on the Done button to continue.

7. Read and accept their privacy policy and terms of service.

8. Tap on the menu button in the top right corner of your phone's screen. The menu button consists of three horizontal lines (≡).

9. Tap on 1.1.1.1. You don't need WARP, which is their VPN service. You only need their private DNS service.

10. Tap on the arrow located next to Settings in the top left corner of the phone's screen to go back to the main screen.

11. Tap on the toggle button to enable the private 1.1.1.1 DNS service.

12. If the app asks you to install a VPN profile, then do it.

13. Once everything's set up, you can close the app. But leave the private 1.1.1.1 DNS enabled.

14. Open (or restart) your web browser and visit the website that was blocked.

If you still cannot access the blocked website, then you will need a VPN app. If you installed the 1.1.1.1 app, you can enable the 1.1.1.1 with WARP option. And if you want another free VPN, then you can use a free VPN app, like Windscribe. Windscribe offers 10GB data per month for free. But if you want more data and speed, and probably also better privacy, then I recommend a paid VPN, like Mullvad or IVPN.
