People complain about sites that require you to obtain a subscription and you don't want to sign up. So, you miss the opportunity to read an article.

At Lxer, we only require registration if you want to post comments. That's part of our terms of service. We want to notify you if we moderate a comment.

But some sites want your name address and email strictly for advertising. So, here's a place to go when you just want to read an article they submitted here or Google News, etc. Visit them at Bug me Not

On Digg.com

How To Use Bugmenot.com


You're browsing the web and you click a link to an article on a site (let's say nytimes.com) but instead of getting the article you get a screen asking you to login or register. Infuriated at the idea of pointlessly registering for yet another site you turn to your good buddy bugmenot.com

How it works

STEP 1: Make a note of the website address your are trying to access. For example:
Or even just:


STEP 2: Visit http://bugmenot.com

STEP 3: Enter the address from step 1 into the box and press the "Get Logins" button

STEP 4:You should now be presented with at least one username and password. Make a note of them.

STEP 5: Go back to the site you were originally trying to access in step 1 and proceed to login with the username and password you noted in the previous step.

It's important to note that all of the username/password accounts listed on bugmenot are added by users such as yourself. If you can't find a working login for a site then you are encouraged to register with that site (using fake details of course) and then add the username/password to bugmenot for other users to use. Never enter your real login details into bugmenot- everyone else will be able to see them!

If you find bugmenot useful then please return the favour by telling everyone you know about it. Together we can take back the web.
