Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Universal Bypass have access to all websites?

  1. Universal Bypass bypasses templates which are used on thousands of domains and it would be impossible for me to keep a complete list of domains which are bypassed.
  2. You would have to get a new Universal Bypass version and accept its new permissions for each new bypass.
  3. Custom Bypasses would be pretty pointless if you could only create them for sites which are already bypassed.

Furthermore, it's open-source so everyone can independently review its source code.

What is crowd bypass?

Also known in the options as "Give and take the destinations of unbypassable shorteners.", this feature exists to bypass a respectable amount of link shorteners using CAPTCHAs and other forms of backend validation to make sure you've actually waited before you can proceed to the target link, to share this target with other Universal Bypass users, who come across the same link in the future, so they can proceed to the target immediately.

What do the version numbers mean?

There are two types of versions:

Why do you auto-update on Chromium-based browsers?

Up until Universal Bypass 12, UB solely had extension updates, but when Google started delaying them by over 7 days, I started seperating "extension" from "bypass definitions" so I could have the extension auto-update the bypass definitions in Chromium-based browsers. If your concerns for this are based in privacy, feel free to read Universal Bypass' Privacy Policy.

Why is there a fourth number in the Firefox version?

Mozilla did not like Universal Bypass auto-updating its bypass definitions, so Firefox only receives extension updates. For that purpose, Firefox gets an exclusive fourth digit in the version number, which is increased for every definitions update I build for Firefox.

How can I check that Universal Bypass is working?

There's a list of example links where you can see Universal Bypass in action over here.

What to do when a website isn't bypassed?

We're always happy to add new bypasses to Universal Bypass, so if you happen to encounter a website that isn't bypassed yet, please open an issue on Github or send me an email, and we'll try our best to bypass it!

What if my question wasn't answered?

Feel free to open an issue on Github or send me an email.
