The following is a list of potentially useful Internet services blocked by NetFree:

  • Most of these services are blocked because they do not meet the NetFree criteria (see here NetFree's policy), these are still mentioned here so that those who are accustomed to using a particular service will know what they might be missing in NetFree.
  • Often, blocked services will have a supported substitute (mentioned below).
  • Some services are blocked due to technical difficulties filtering them and may be opened some time in the future. See the Voting page for details.
