Frequently Asked Questions
- 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.
- You would have to get a new Universal Bypass version and accept its new permissions for each new bypass.
- 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.
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.
On Firefox, there is a fourth number in the extension version, e.g. 184.108.40.206 which is extension version 13.12.4 with definitions version
Google took it down for apparently "circumventing paywalls." I have clarified that Universal Bypass is more of an adblocker and asked for details of where paywalls are circumvented, but it's Google, so of course I didn't get a response.
There are two types of versions:
- Extension, e.g. 12.0.1: The extension that interprets the bypass definitions and is "installed" in your browser.
- Bypass definitions, e.g.
931f2f9: The short commit hash representing the bypass definitions version. For practicality reasons, not every commit is listed as a seperate changelog entry, but you can view every commit on Github.
There's a list of example links where you can see Universal Bypass in action over here.
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!
Feel free to open an issue on Github or send me an email.
