We legally bypass paywalls by redirecting you to archived news and research papers.
Hijinks, the friendly Spaywall ghost.
While we ask that our users directly support their favorite news outlets, the media landscape is simply too fragmented for anyone to subscribe to them all.
Our Premium plan uses a variety of archives to improve the chances of a paywall-free version. There's strength in numbers.
Scientists are paid to perform and distribute research, yet much of it remains locked behind paywalls, with many journal memberships exceeding thousands of dollars per year.†
Though scientific research is often funded by taxpayers via government institutions, journal membership fees have outpaced inflation by over 250% over the past thirty years.‡
And when trying to find the right article, it's not clear which ones are relevant until after purchase, with no refunds allowed. Let Spaywall help you break down these walls!

There are millions of legally-available scholarly articles out there, and we've indexed those that are Open Access (approximately half).
Accomplish your research goals faster by letting Spaywall search our database for you, and redirect you straight to the PDF if it's available. It's fast and 100% legal.
It actually works. Yay!
Finally found an extension that works! Love it!
It works for the sites I needed.
This site is such a Blessing! It works perfectly — most wonderful!
Truly a life saver for university, I cant afford to read all the articles I need for my papers or classes. Thank you so much.
Excellent! Bypass New York Times paywall! Thank you!
Worked like a charm so far.
Simply just works.
This extension is amazing because it lets you read content from all over the world, not only of US and Europe newspapers.
Fantastic app! Worked a treat.
It works to get through news site paywalls, which is a lifesaver, but doesn't let me interact with some pages past reading them - overall a very useful extension with only minor limitations.
