- Rated 1 out of 5by user 0928524114, 15 days agoNot working even after latest update. New tab opens as shown on screenshot, sometimes fails to verify. Even if the new tab verifies, I have to verify once again on the site that requested it. So that's solving waiting two captchas each time to load and verify. The next time same story! What's the point then? Solving twice the amount of captchas and not even earning tickets for next captcha relief? No thanks. Useless addon made to waste users time.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 14881252, a month agoWhile the github has been updated since the last review claiming it might have been abandoned, it still doesn't work. The privacy pass page will pop up just as often as cloudflair normally would, and will in fact occasionally fail to properly identify you as human rather than a bot, making the extension entirely pointless
- Rated 1 out of 5by Bobby Wibowo, 3 months agoHas stopped working since the past few weeks. According to the people at GitHub it's indeed broken and will require fixing. Unfortunately there have been no Git commits ever since, so it might be an abandonware.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 17863214, 3 months agoUseless now. hCaptcha dropped support and Cloudflare appears to have done so as well. Any site protected by Cloudflare just goes into an endless loop of "Are you human?". It's a sad state of the usability of the web that such a plugin is needed in the first place.
- Rated 1 out of 5by nibba111, a year 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 1 out of 5by WildernessFamily, a year 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 Chrys, a year 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.
