Q2. Gmail etc sites are blocked in WiFi , is there any app which can helps to browse to these URL's.

Looking forward for positive response..

The poster above can probably help you with Q1

for Q2 you may want to try VPN services or proxy services.

Orbot is a reputable service. May also want to check out The Guardian Project (which Orbot is a part of)

Orbot: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roject.android

Orbot has the option to use root to route ALL network traffic through Orbit. Definitely a good app.

I also use DroidWall for some protection on public networks, like really untrusted networks, what I'll do is disable connections from all apps except what I want to do (eg. Chrome browser).

Both apps are free from Play Store, you should check them out.

You can still use Orbot with Firefox proxy extension and/or Orweb without root, that's all I can say.

Hope this helps
