There are many others way where you can change your IP address and by pass Bans. But the fastest way is to use a proxy. A proxy is an ip address that take cover and blend with your real ip. Showing the proxy instead of your IP is the most way nobody will find where you're from like normal users like you. It may show you're from China or from Australia even though you're living in the United States. Using proxy are not illegal and are easy to use.

Check/tick on Use this proxy for all protocol.
Click [OK]
