How to Deny A Country Access to Your PC with PeerBlock

Blocking a person or two from accessing your computer sounds easy enough, right?

What about blocking an entire country? As it turns out, it’s not all that much more difficult, and if you’re especially concerned about specific security threats, it could be a smart move for the health of your PC.

If you have reason to believe that a person or group from a specific country is meddling in your tech, then nip it in the bud with PeerBlock.

Torrents and Security

PeerBlock was created as a means for those engaging in torrenting to stay private. Everyone knows that they shouldn’t download things from the Internet from questionable sites, but sometimes the temptation is just too much to bear, and that’s where PeerBlock comes in.

This program basically works by filtering certain IP addresses: it filters your address out of view of other addresses you’ve entered into the program. This will help you evade the eyes of a single person, or an entire country.

Locking Them Out

This concept isn’t exactly novel, or even all that high tech. Websites will frequently deny access to entire countries due to issues like lack of availability in their area, or stricter security codes. Using this same idea, you can block yourself from the view of a whole country.

To do this, you’ll first have to download PeerBlock and find the IP range for the country you wish to block. Next, open your list manager in PeerBlock and input the IP range URL from iblock. After that, you can rest assured that the country in question cannot see you or access your PC.

It might feel impossible to totally guard yourself from an entire country, but the reality is that when you demystify the Internet and its different components, it’s not all that difficult.
