Progress on circumventing metered paywall with incognito browsers?

Jenna Duncan 2 months ago updated by Carl Appen 1 month ago 2

Just wanted to see if anyone has heard if there's a timeline for finding a fix to this issue: Users can circumvent the metered paywall once they hit their limit by using incognito windows, and it's been pretty rampant in the past few months. 


The last meeting we had with TownNews they said they were aware of the issue and working on a fix, curious if there's an update on this.

I'm very curious about this as well.

Negative. No solution yet and we’ll likely be waiting awhile. It’s a problem for everyone- nyt.com included. 
If it’s any consolation, the population that knows to use incognito mode is probably smaller than we think.
