New site requests:

Only large or major sites will be considered.

  1. Visit an article on the site you want to bypass the paywall for and copy the article title.
  2. Open up a new incognito window (Ctrl+Shift+N) 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 extension works best alongside uBlock Origin.
  • If a site doesn't work try turning off uBlock and refreshing.
