Access websites blocked in your country, company, or school with Hola. Hola is free and easy to use!

You do NOT need to sign up or open a Hola account for most sites - just add to Chrome and start using. Hola enables you to access websites blocked or censored in your country with its unique and fast tunneling technology.

The Hola extension works 100% standalone. It does not link to, nor encourage the download of any other products and is fully functional as is, without requiring any additional download.

The free version unblocks most websites for a limited period of time. To unblock all websites with no time limits, sign-up and subscribe to Hola Premium - you don't need to install anything!

If you have any technical issues please write to us at help@hola.org

Hola requires the following permissions:

  • Proxy: Let Hola extension proxy your traffic through a server in another country to change your IP and unblock restricted sites. Why? This is the basic requirement for unblocking a website.

  • AllHosts/WebRequest/WebRequestBlocking: Let Hola extension check every web request and modify it. Why? Hola is the fastest unblocker because it uses split-tunneling technology to only proxy the minimum number of web requests needed to unblock a site - and only when necessary.
