Many newspapers display paywalls that prevent us from seeing the full content of articles. There are, however, a few tricks to avoid them.
There is no need to install the above extension if you don't want to. Read on to find out in detail the tricks you can use to avoid most paywalls.
2. Delete cookies
Sometimes newspapers display paywalls after viewing a few articles. This happens because they don't want to scare off new visitors with a paywall. To make them think you are a new visitor, simply delete your cookies.
3. Change the user agent
Many newspapers want to restrict access to users, but not to web crawlers, as this would affect their search engine ranking. There are extensions to change the user agent in a simple way: one of them is User-Agent Switcher and Manager. You would have to impersonate web crawlers such as Googlebot or Bingbot.
4. Blocking elements
Sometimes it works to remove elements from web pages. We can do this by opening the element inspector of the web browser and removing the elements that belong to the paywall, but it is easier to do this with uBlock Origin.
