Bypassing Oglobo Sign-up

Oglobo has created a ‘sign-up wall’ where, if you have read a certain amount of articles in a month, they try to make you sign up (includes giving them your CPF and ID numbers). You literally won’t be able to read anything you click on. The way around it is to clear your browser cookies, if possible (and it should be possible for all modern browsers) you should be able to do it just for the site in question.

For Chrome, enter Settings (drop down menu to the right of the star in the address bar) or Preferences (via the main menu), as they both lead to the same location. Click ‘Show advanced settings’ at the bottom of the list, then ‘Content settings’, then ‘Manage exceptions’, at which point you will be able to type in which sites you wish Chrome to clear cookies on, as well as select “clear on exit” (which will clear the cookies for Oglobo every time you leave the site).
