This extension will help you stop being bothered by annoying PayWall articles.

Paywall Blocker achieves this by hiding the most commonly referred to as Plus articles on the overview pages. In the current version, the visibility of these articles is lowered and when you move the mouse over the article, it is displayed again and you can view and handle it like any other article.

Paywall Blocker supports the largest German online magazines, newspapers and news sites.

It should be working in all Chrome and Firefox based Browsers.

Tested in the following Browsers:

  • Chrome (88.0.4324.190)
  • Brave (1.20.110 Chromium: 88.0.4324.192)
  • Edge (88.0.705.81)
  • Opera (74.0.3911.160)
