How to Get Around the New York Times and Washington Post Paywalls without Really Trying

If you are a news junky, you've most likely come across paywalls for sites like the New York Times and Washington Post, which allow users to access a small number of articles every month, before they block access:


There are, however, a number of easy ways to bypass the paywalls for these particular sites.


Solution 1: Use a Different Browser
These sites block access to articles after you have reached their set monthly limits, which, for the New York Times, is ten articles per month. The sites track the number of articles you have read in your browser. If you hit their paywalls, one obvious solution is thus to just begin using a different browser once you have reached your article limit in your primary browser. The drawback here though is that your secondary browser will also be blocked by the paywall once you reach the article limit inside that browser. But do not fear.

Solution 2: Use Your Browser's Private or Incognito Mode
In fact, there is no need to use a secondary browser at all. Since the number of articles you have viewed is tracked by the browser itself, you can simply shut the tracker off by using your browser in private (Firefox) or incognito (Chrome) mode. In private or incognito mode, your browser will disable its cache and history, which, at present, also effectively disables the paywalls for sites like the New York Times and Washington Post.

  2. To enable private browsing in Firefox, click on the hamburger icon at the top right and then select New Private Window. You can also just use the CTRL + SHIFT + P keyboard shortcut. You will be able to tell you are in private mode because of the mask located in the top right of the window

    2. You Trumpkins with your mind numbing fake news bullshit really get on my nerves. Not one of you has any better resources to prove a news article is "fake news" other than you disagree with it, you don't like it, it's not flattering to Trump, or the big Cheetoh said it's fake. I'll believe any of the major news outlets but FOX, before I'll believe a damn thing any of you brain-washed Trumpeciles has to say.

  7. You may have heard so much about e-discovery in the last few years that if you see another article, webinar or seminar you might burst. You may feel overwhelmed with technology and that it's moving faster than the speed of light. You may be frustrated with those you work with, because they expect you to be educated on the latest and greatest technology tools, but when it's time for their document review, you're told to make multiple copies or print all the documents out!http://www.assignmentsynonym.eu/
