How to Bypass Online Surveys? Complete a Quick Survey to Continue! Bypass Tips

Postby Sophia » 2013-01-22 3:45


Surveys are pretty much always a sing of a scam. Here is how it works. CPA (cost per action) ad networks pay only when the desired action has occurred, for example, an online survey has been successfully completed. Affiliate marketers make commission based off your submission of information to a company database. It can be email address, phone number or any other information about you. This information can and probably will be used in future marketing campaigns.

Let's say you want to watch your favorite TV show online. You found a website which looks legit and has your favorite TV show. You're about to watch it but the website brings you to a survey that you have to fill out to get to the content. Usually, you can choose from several offers. My all time 'favorite' is the Love Thermometer. Basically, you need to sign up for the Love Thermometer by entering your phone number. It costs $10 per week to send your 'scores'. Bonus: they will send ads to your phone. Isn't that great? Honestly, it doesn't worth the risk. The truth be told, there are literally hundreds of fake internet survey websites. So, I wouldn't fill out paid surveys if I were you. After all, you may not get the requested file or video simply because it doesn't exist. There are many free and safe websites that offer file downloads and video streaming without annoying pop-up surveys.

Recently we stumbled upon another potentially harmful online survey which encourages users to install free 'Coupon Printer'. Everyone wants to save money, so Coupon Printer isn't such a bad idea after all. However, you need to read every single line very carefully before installing 'printers' and other software recommend in surveys. In our case, the 'Coupon Printer' offer came with an extra 'ingredient' -- MyWebSearch adware. We couldn't even finish the survey because our antivirus software blocked it.

Unfortunately, there's no easy way to bypass surveys on websites. Let's take Share Cash surveys for instance. You can't really bypass their extremely annoying surveys and it's not because we haven't tried, it's because the way they laid it out. Disabling JavaScript in your web browser won't help. Using XJZ survey remover and No Script add-on won't help you either. None of these tools can actually fill out or skip surveys for you. They are designed to reveal premium (protected) content in a slightly different way. Please note, surveys ≠ 'premium' content lockers. However, you might get lucky with other survey websites.


Bypassing surveys:

    1. Survey-remover.com, formerly known as XJZ Survey Remover. This bookmarklet was designed to reveal protected areas on websites. Removes surveys most of the time but it doesn't work if the survey leads to a download (sharecash). Works on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. For more details, please visit this website: http://survey-remover.com/bookmarklet/

    2. Use No Script. A great web browser add-on trusted by many PC users. It was designed to block malicious JavaScript files but in some cases it may help you to bypass pop-up surveys too.

    3. Disable JavaScript. This method is the easiest one. However, we have to admit it rarely works. Most likely, you will get an error message followed by step-by-step instructions on how to enable JavaScript in your web browser.
