Get Access To Flickr In Countries Where It Is Banned

Do you want to access Flickr but can’t because it is banned in your country? If you are living in China, Myanmar, UAE, Iran, or any other country where this website is banned then here is the easy way to access the site. Instead of using web proxy websites, you can now use an add-on for Firefox called Access Flickr to get full access to the website. Developed by Hamed Saber who is an avid photographer himself, this add-on surprisingly works very well.

According to the developer of this application,

Just install the extension and restart your browser. There is no configuration, no menu, no icon… All needed configurations are done automatically!
After restarting, you can access flickr.com, without any restriction!
Just notice that you should use the basic uploader instead of the flash version. You can find the basic uploader here:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/upload/basic

access to flickr denied

If you are accessing Flickr from UAE, you will get the following message,

"We apologize the site [Flickr.com] you are attempting to visit has been blocked due to its content being inconsistent with the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the United Arab Emirates."

By using this add-on you won’t get this messages anymore, it has been tested by thousands of Flickr fans in countries where the website is blocked. Enjoy!

Note: Using this add-on will not unblock any other banned website except Flickr.
