bypass newspaper paywall

Recommended Posts

I'd recommend using canary version of chrome because it won't remove the extension not like in normal versions of chrome.

and for the instructions (Load Unpacked)

Spoiler

its at the site click "bypass-paywalls-chrome-clean" and scroll down to see instructions.

How to use:

  1. Type code from the Screenshot
  2. Type URL from the Screenshot
  3. Enter a name and Save
  4. Open URL that you typed in step 2, in Chrome
  5. Click on Stylus icon for options to enable/disable what you saved in step 3

 

See this post 👇 for gif help and the OP for Stylus download link

  bypass paywalls works quite well. there are occasions when you need to stop the browser refreshing again or the paywall can re-appear

@TrojanK ,

 

Sorry to bother you again concerning this issue but I am hoping you can work your magic with another fix to this as your work around shows a paragragh and the rest of the article is blocked from viewing with pictures of it.

 

Appreciate your help as always.

The magic can be done using uBlock Origin.

Do you use it?

I use Firefox.  I have uBlock Origin and it is great for blocking all ads.  But it doesn't seem to help much with paywalls.  For those, I use Bypass Paywalls Clean which works very well.

I pay for a long time an epaper subscription to a local newspaper.

 

Wih the link I created to to my epaper I was able to load and read he newspaper in all electronic devices (pc, Android, IPad and iphone).

 

Just cancelled my subscription and as expected I can not longer use the link since ask for a passswor to load it. With one exception the link in my Android phone still works and I can continue read the newspaper.

 

My question why this may happen since I use the same link in the other devices and ask for a password.

 

Thanks for the help.

 

update: finally it was also block in my Android. Took time but blocked.

Thanks for the information, it works perfectly for that website. Unfortunately it does not work with the same instruction for "elperiodico.com"

 

Could you please indicate what instruction is needed to block the paywalls on this website?

 

TIA

@leapinlizards Yes I've seen it but I haven't tried it, it probably works but I find that if it works through uBlock it's all much "cleaner".

 

edit: humm, I hadn't paid attention to the method of adding lists in uBlock, I thought it was only through the extension. Thanks for the tip, I'll try if it works.

 

edit2: yeah, working fine!! Thanks so much @leapinlizards
