Sites with limited number of free articles

The free article limit can normally be bypassed by removing cookies for the site.*

Install the Cookie Remover Add-on.

When coming across a paywall click the cookie icon to remove the cookies then refresh the page.

*May not always succeed

New site requests

Only large or major sites will be considered. No small sites or local newspapers.

  1. Visit an article on the site you want to bypass the paywall for and copy the article title.
  2. Open up a new Private window (Ctrl+Shift+P) and paste the article title into Google.
  3. Click on the same article from the Google search results page. If it loads without a paywall you can submit a request to add the site, otherwise my extension cannot bypass it either.

Usually premium articles cannot be bypassed as they are behind a hard paywall.


  • This add-on works best alongside uBlock Origin.
  • If a site doesn't work try turning off uBlock and refreshing.

Pull Requesets

  • PRs are welcome.

Show your support

  • I am not asking for donations or anything like that, all I ask is that you star this repo.
