We’ve all experienced a website paywall requiring a subscription to read an article online. Most websites that use paywalls are using Javascript to block users from viewing their content.

Here is how you can bypass a website paywall that uses Javascript using a desktop computer and Google Chrome browser.

On the website you’d like to view content, right-click then from menu select Inspect

On Windows, or Linux, Control

+ Shift

+ P

On MacOS, Command +

+ Shift

+ P

The Command Menu.

The Command Menu opens.

JavaScript will remain disabled in this tab so long as you have DevTools open.

You may want to reload the page to see if and how the page depends on JavaScript while loading.

To re-enable JavaScript:

  • Open the Command Menu again and run the Enable JavaScript command.
  • Close DevTools.
