How to Play Minecraft Classic Unblocked on Any Network
Minecraft and other games can be blocked in schools, universities, and workplaces. There are ways to get around the restrictions but you should do so discreetly without raising any alarms with your IT department. Do note that if you are trying to install Minecraft on a device owned by your school or employer, it might be a very bad idea. Some IT departments track activity on your devices and it can lead to repercussions. If you are trying to unblock Minecraft on a personal device, you can do so by using Port Forwarding, installing a VPN (Virtual Private Network), or by changing your firewall settings.
Use VPN to unblock Minecraft
If you are unable to download Minecraft, the easiest way to bypass the issue is by installing a VPN. There are plenty of popular options like ExpressVPN, Private Internet Access, Surfshark, and even a trial version of a VPN can do the job.
There is also a free proxy available for PC by Cloudflare that can usually bypass blocked websites. Head to and download the app for Windows. Once installed, toggle it on and you should be able to bypass all restrictions on your network. All data is routed through Cloudflare servers and even though it’s not a proper VPN with server selection options it can do the job just fine and is secure.
Port Forwarding and Firewall Settings
Port Forwarding can help if you have Minecraft installed but are not able to connect to the server due to your IT department blocking access to the game. This works only if you have access to the router.
192.168.1.1 and 192.168.0.1 are the two most common router login addresses and you can log in if you know the username and password to get into the settings menu. Under Advanced Settings of your router, you should be able to locate Port Forwarding and you can add 25565 as a port which should allow you to connect to Minecraft.
Do note that the user interface and settings menus of routers can vary and you should consult your router’s manual online in case you have difficulty navigating your router’s settings page.
If the game is blocked specifically on your PC, you can do the following to unblock Minecraft.
Search for “Windows Defender” in the Start menu and launch it
Click on “Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewall”
Select Minecraft and enable access to the game
Exit the menu
As mentioned before, if you are trying to unblock Minecraft at an educational institution or workplace, you should do so at your own risk. If your device activity is being monitored, it could land you in trouble.
