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.

Besides, every version of the extension is being reviewed by Google and Mozilla to make sure it's not harmful and it's open-source so everyone can independently review it.

How do I interpret the version numbers?

As of Universal Bypass 12, there are two versions, seperated by a minus sign (-):

Why does Universal Bypass have its own upate mechanism?

Up until Universal Bypass 12, UB solely had extension updates, but when Google started delaying them by over 7 days, I introduced auto-updating of the injection script, because in the real world, websites can be changed to negate bypasses within minutes. At the end of the day, Universal Bypass users across the board benefit, as most improvements don't need an extension update and can be available to them within minutes. If your concerns for this are based in privacy, feel free to read Universal Bypass' Privacy Policy.

How can I check that Universal Bypass is working?
