While many web sites offer contents or service for free, most of them require you to register with them to access the contents. And to do that you have to part with your email id. Of course, you could have a separate email id that you use only for such registrations and not for receiving your important mails. But even then you have to take the trouble of logging into your mail to click on the confirmation link to confirm your registration.
But there is an easy way to get members-only content without enduring the hassle of signing up for an account. With BugMeNot, you can slip past most of these requirements. BugMeNot is a free site that stockpiles user-generated account logins and passwords so that users don’t have to provide their own personal info. Just go to the BugMeNot web site and type in the URL of the site that you’d like to log in to. BugMeNot will return a list of user names and passwords that you can use to log in. If a particular username/password combination does not work, try another.
Can things get any easier? Fortunately yes.
If you are a Firefox user, the BugMeNot Firefox Extension makes things even easier by automating the service. Once you install the BugMeNot extension, the next time you encounter a required log-in prompt for a free site, right-click the username or email address box and select Login with BugMeNot. If the initial attempt fails, repeat the process. If things go fine, you should be able to access the registration-required content easily.
