A very well-known tactic to bypass web filtering is to paste a naughty URL into Google Translate. However, you can shut this functionality off while allowing Google Translate to still work.

On your web filtering solution:

  • Allow the domain translate.google.com.
  • Block the domain translate.goog.
  • Some people on Reddit’s k12sysadmin claim you also need to block translate.googleusercontent.com, too. But in my browser dev tools spelunking, I did not see the need to do so, as of November 2021.
