Access blocked sites Malaysia

In Malaysia, Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC )is the authority to investigate on content on the Internet and has the right to issue blockage on certain sites in Malaysia


Here are some methods to access sites which are blocked in Malaysia. Warning, mygadgets.my is only sharing this as part of education process and does not take responsibility on any harms or intended usage . Different Internet Service Provider (ISP) may have different methods to block websites in Malaysia.

1. Bypass TM DNS and use external DNS , Tested working on all Telekom Malaysia Networks

*We received updated information that this does not work for some TM users anymore. Please refer to other methods below if this do not work for you. Tor browser is by far the best method We’ve tried

This method only works for Telekom Malaysia related Internet service such as Unify or Streamy. Basically, TM removes the DNS entry on their server when MCMC issues a website to be blocked as such TM Internet users will not be able to lookup the domain name. This method involves changing your computer DNS to lookup DNS servers from the Internet such as Google DNS 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 and many more. In theory, this method should work for all types of devices and operating system as long as you are connected to TM Internet service.
