Can't get on Facebook

I have been trying to log onto Facebook and keep getting a notice I can’t get on.  Not always but most of the time I am getting a Barracuda Web Filter won’t allow it.  What is Barracuda and how do I get rid of it?  I don’t remember activating it.  Thanks for any help you can give me.  Linda

Are you accessing Facebook from an office computer?  Barracuda Web Filter is usually used on a corporate network to prevent employees from spending time on specified sites.

I am using Wi Fi from a local network.  It’s a guest network and they gave me permission to use it.  It’s my computer.  At first I didn’t know what it was but now I know it is something to do with their wi fi.  I was beginning to think I had picked up a virus. Thanks Linda
