The best way to unblock Fortnite at school

The best and the only way to unblock any kind of blocked content including and Fortnite is to use a VPN[3] service. For those how doesn’t know what VPN is, I will introduce. It is a Virtual private network which encrypts your connection to the other website, streaming service, and other media. It also hides your IP, which means that your local server does not understand that you are connecting to the Fortnite servers. Users are able to connect to the Fortnite server via another server and bypass local IP restrictions. Imagine road from point A to Z.


VPN stands in the middle as a point C and encrypts all your internet activities (browsing history, IP address and so on.) Look at the image below to understand it more clearly.
