Are you are so addicted to this chat messenger that you cannot live a single moment without it? You want to stay connected to your friends chatting with them all day, sharing pictures and videos and what not? Don't you feel bored when you get back to School or College only to find out that this app's servers are not available when you try and login through School internet? Well, we have jotted down few pointers using which you can login to it even where it is blocked like in an educational institution.
Why is this app not allowed in Schools and Colleges?
To look at it your school does not want you to get distracted. They are meant to teach you and not allow you to swing away from your curriculum. One thing is assured that the moment they allow unrestricted internet in their campus no student will ever pay attention to what is being taught in the class. Internet is full of amazing stuff but at the same time stuff that is way too distracting to be used in schools.
To prevent you from accessing the complete internet your school/colleges might have had a proxy server setup or they might even have a firewall that restricts your internet usage.
What is a Proxy Server?
Also called a "proxy," it is a computer system or router that breaks the connection between sender and receiver. Functioning as a relay between client and server, proxy servers help prevent an attacker from invading a private network and are one of several tools used to build a firewall.
The word proxy means "to act on behalf of another," and a proxy server acts on behalf of the user. All requests from clients to the Internet go to the proxy server first. The proxy evaluates the request, and if allowed, re-establishes it on the outbound side to the Internet. Likewise, responses from the Internet go to the proxy server to be evaluated. The proxy then relays the message to the client. Both client and server think they are communicating with one another, but, in fact, are dealing only with the proxy. Watch below video to understand what a proxy server is:
What is a firewall?
A firewall is a network security device that accepts or rejects network access to traffic pipelining between a zone that is not trustowrthy (Internet) and a trusted source (a private or corporate network). The firewall acts as the demarcation point or “traffic cop” in the network, as all communication should flow through it and it is where traffic is granted or rejected access. Firewalls enforce access controls through a positive control model, which states that only traffic defined in the firewall policy is allowed onto the network; all other traffic is denied (known as “default deny”).

Ways to get pass the firewall and proxies at School and Colleges to use KIK Messenger
1. Use you own mobile data to surf the internet
2. Use a free proxy website such as https://kproxy.com/
3. Use a free VPN app on your device that lets you by-pass the firewall that your school might have set up.
There are many VPN apps that come for free and you can give it a shot which one works best for you. My personal favorite is SuperVPN
Before you start using it at your school do not try to forget what school is meant for and what exactly you should be doing at school.
Respect your institutions rules and regulations as they are meant for your well-being and growth. You can of-course use it in non-session hours or during lunch breaks but please avoid using this app or rather any other app when you are studying at school.
