How to Skip Pinterest's Annoying "Login / Sign Up" Popup

Skip and ByPass the "Pinterest Login" Popup without an account




This goes along with the long and infamous list of "Pinterest Fails" and the hundreds of other websites that force its users to create an account to progress from the homepage. It is this kind of slimy manipulation that makes the internet a more laborious way to spend your time, forcing you to fill out your real name, formulating a 6 character-one number password, detailing your age and gender or just linking to your Facebook account so they can post automated advertisements on your behalf. All in a bid to send your internet information to the highest bidder and cater banner advertisements to your new found interest in 1940's typography. 


Thankfully, there is a work around. 


Firstly, install 'TamperMonkey', this add-on will allow you to view websites your own way, adding or removing components of a webpage to improve its usability. In fact, this same plugin allows you to bypass websites that block 'Adblock' (e.g. Forbes, Hulu or Comedy Central). Click on the browser you're using below and you'll be sent to the official link to download the plugin.

Next, with the addon installed, simply click on the black icon with the two circles to the right of your URL bar to reveal a menu (as shown above), where you'll click "Dashboard" and then "Utilities". Copy and paste the following "GreasyFork" URL and click "Import". Finally, simply click install.

    1. Ignore that part then, just copy and paste the given url into your url bar. Greasemonkey will give you a popup offering to install the script.
