It works occasionally, but never consistently. Sometimes it does not accrue tokens, other times it does not spend tokens, just ignores them. Most likely its getting interrupted by uBlock Origin or Privacy Badger. Doesn't appear to be much development going on with it. I hope future improvements focus on compatibility with the major add-ons. As of now it's not worth the extra resources.

- Rated 1 out of 5by nibba111, 2 months agoOne of those cases where I'd happily give a zero-star rating, but there is no such thing. I guess one star can be given for the intention behind. Some issues:
1. Stores passes in localStorage. Due to this they get cleaned up by automatic cleaning, always if the browser is in permanent private mode (Tor Browser). If you don't use permanent private mode, instead automatically cleaning history on exit, you can put moz-extension://ea706443-32b7-4727-b136-408bf93e5004/ in cleaning exceptions, which is very unintuitive.
My passes getting deleted was a big surprise the first time...
It was even reported in the issue tracker (https://github.com/privacypass/challenge-bypass-extension/issues/205), yet dismissed by the dev. Somehow storing that in localStorage is not a bug.
How would you like uBlock rules cleared on every launch?
2. Can't coin passes in Tor Browser.
3. Buggy if you disabled WASM.
4. No functionality for import/export. But you can do it through debugging extension in a web inspector. I guess this is where localStorage comes useful but it still sucks. See https://pastebin.com/EgruhFQc for functions.
5. If you managed to import passes via own js in Tor Browser, or you switched to Tor in a normal one, it won't fully redeem them. In case of hCaptcha, it mistrusts you after you uselessly redeem a pass or two. In case of Cloudflare, most important sites that I use don't get highlighted by the extension. Websites like ChatGPT, some manga websites and forums, enter an endless loop with rotating thing on a page that uses deceptive language like "checking if your connection is secure", despite obviously not checking out the connection, but me. I haven't yet encountered a cloudflared website I use a lot which supports this.
5.1. No visual indicators that it mistrusts you despite eating a pass. No indicators if it works generally beyond using devtools. No status messages.
6. Only 5 hCaptcha passes for one completion.
7. Given that Privacy Pass as a standard will combat pass hoarding by associating passes with metadata (see the latter part of https://blog.cloudflare.com/privacy-pass-v3/), it's not very obvious why not just ditch tokens entirely and use registration with captchas (a la hCaptcha accessibility) to begin with. It's inevitable that you get rid of anonymity and stuff like that in order to not be frustrated with workarounds like this one. By registering with a captcha provider you might not need to redeem anything anymore, you can build trust in each internet-using biological platform on individual basis.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 15397935, 3 months agoLooking at the reviews, it seems YMMV with this add-on. That said, I have noticed a significant drop in captchas for myself.
- Rated 1 out of 5by WildernessFamily, 4 months agoIt was easy to setup but it does not work. I just trying to sign into Discord and had to use hCaptcha even though I have 5 hcaptcha passes.
HOWEVER, that said, the reviews like from BoycottCF are grossly wrong. CloudFlare is awesome! Oh wait..let me guess, BoycottCF is...wait for it...Google, Hi Google!
- Rated 1 out of 5by tinytankpu, 5 months agoDoes not work in Firefox. The Cloudflare captcha website always flags Firefox as a bot and won't ever let you complete a captcha to generate the passes.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Chrys, 7 months agoEveryone should make an account to negatively review this fake solution to a problem cloud flare created. We're almost to worse than a bank but we can go further. I believe in you internet. if you need a hand, outlook is the best way to get a non phone numbered email nowadays.
