    that's pretty much it for school city of hammond has, that and some thing else that I can't remember off the top of my head that allows the teacher to see what's going on on all student computers for that room and restrict stuff or even directly control it, which some even block task manager which is sometimes a pain, although the funny part is that they have no idea how to set it up for chromebooks so there a safe heaven for bs to happen XD

    An interesting thing I've noticed about most schools' block filters and proxies is that they don't normally block traffic over ports 21 and 22, allowing you to tunnel a SOCKS5 proxy over an SSH tunnel and bypass any proxies, etc.
    Ironic since it's a really old method, you'd think they'd notice that shit

    I can simply use some random free vpn app on my tablet and it bypasses all these sites being blocked

    Reminds me how a friend and I successfully used "format C:" on our PC in elementary school back in 1998. :D

    I'd rather tunnel in to my own server, because I know I can trust my server to handle my data properly instead of dealing with some "free" vpns that openly admit to snooping on your data

    You don't even need to rent a server, just open some port on your router and point it to an old computer you don't use or an rpi plugged in via ethernet

    Meanwhile in my school computers:
    -regedit isn't blocked
    -cmd isn't blocked
    -BIOS isn't blocked
    -Boot drive selection isn't blocked [F11]
    -Winrar license [what]
    -services.msc isn't blocked
    -You can easily kill "RAT" [That shit which can control your PC remotely] by just forcing shutdown then mashing ESC, it will stop being in the memory.
    -Secret teamviewer install so I can access that PC from anywhere and can drop my files. [Which are deleted anyways]
    -Teacher knows shit about computers and just redirects us to code on code.org (lol)
    -That "teacher" scares us that he will kill our wifi, so i killed his PC instead. [Oddly enough, shutdown -i works on every PC connected to the network :P]

    My school doesn't let unauthorised programs be run on the system... unless you use an external HDD.
    This means I could potentially run Chromium from the hard drive and browse with a VPN, and also kill the teachers' spying with a task manager.

    Just make a live usb of a Linux distro and wreak havoc on the hard drive. Almost always the boot sequence isn't locked. If you can't boot with usb, a cd/dvd will work.

    Do u want people to comment more to add to that list? If so, administrator accounts can bypass web filters (sometimes) by disabling auto proxy (stopping the computer connecting to the school's proxy). Works for me.

    My school has imacs cuz apparently windows is too open for school use

    But we can still use programs that need access to applications folder cuz they locked it for access by apps. So we just put the apps in downloads and it works fine
