First there will be an explanation of why you don’t want to get past surveys at all. If you are more interested in the technical way to circumvent surveys, skip to the 2nd half of the areticle.
This is a short tutorial on how to skip most kinds of content lockers, also known as Surveys. This is not a very straight forward method of doing it, but it works in 99.9% of all cases. If this does not work, check out the best ways to Bypass Human Verification Surveys.
In order to understand why this method works and how it works, you need to understand why people use Survey content lockers or offer completions. – The reason is because it is one of the very few methods of making money and selling things that are available to almost anyone and in which the buyer cannot charge back his money or his time.
Every time a Survey of Offer is completed, the creator of the survey gets money somewhere between 50 cents and 12 dollars usually and depending on what kind of offer you complete. Now the problem is that once you have completed the offer and get to the next page, if you don’t find what you are looking for, there is no way to get your money back.
In Short: “Surveys is an easy way to make money where the buyer can get spammed without being able to get his money back.”
With other words: “Scammers love Surveys and Offer Lockers”
Essentially Surveys allow a scammer to promise a “customer” literally anything:
- Free money
- Unlimited Health and Money for X Game
- Free Whatever
(the “seller” has none of these things, but he claims to have them to make you complete the offer)
How we Skip the Surveys
1. Now that we know that surveys are scams in 99.9% of cases and the things they promise are is many cases impossible, we will now stop being naïve and gullible.
2. Close the page that offers your “X Free stuff of hacks for X” by clicking the X in the top right
3. Go to Google and look for legit stuff that actually exists
4. Share this with your friends, so they don’t get scammed
Why are people still falling for the old Survey Scam?
I’m not exactly sure how these survey offer scams continue making money. I guess the average internet user is simply not as experienced as me (a person who works online) and therefore a bit more naïve. However, considering that most survey locked pages promote stuff that is completely logically and scientifically impossible, like money hacks for online games, free stuff and so on, it is still hard to imagine that people actually fall for it.
“If it sounds too good to be true, then it’s probably fake”
This applies also to the internet, folks ;)
How to actually disable surveys using NoScript or Page Editors
If you still want to get actually past the survey in a technical way, even though there will not be anything legitimate behind it, then here is the way to do it:
2. Or you will need a tool that will allow you to edit the web page
3. Install and enable the plugin and the overlay surveys will be Disabled.
Works for all browsers.
This kind of hack will only work for the kind of survey that overlays the page and makes it unclickable / unreadable. The other kind is unhackable, since it routes information, including the link to any pages or downloads through the survey providers page.
It is also possible in the same cases to simply extract the href url from the HTML code of the page to do so simply use your source code developer option in your brower. – Every browser has this option somewhere.
