How to read Medium Premium articles for free

Medium, as we know, is a platform for writing your articles, but it is also a publishing platform which you can use to showcase those articles to everyone on the Medium network. However, there's a catch. You can only browse a number of articles before Medium asks you to pay up to become a member. You can become a member on Medium by paying $5/month or $50/year, and start reading unlimited, quality articles on Medium. And then, you can pay neither, and still read unlimited articles on Medium.

Here are the step you need to follow to read Medium for free:
1. Create a Medium account, if you don't already have one
2. Go to the article you want to read
3. Copy the link to the article from the address bar of your browser
4. Open private browsing mode on your browser. Read this to know how to open private browsing mode on Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge, or good old Internet Explorer (why are you still using Internet Explorer!)
5. In the private browsing mode window, paste the link of the article you had copied in step 3, and press enter
6. If after a few tries, Medium blocks you on private browsing mode too, simply restart the browser. Or you can try another browser as well, I mean we hardly use Edge or Internet Explorer for anything other than downloading Google Chrome, right? (No offense Microsoft)

Now go ahead and enjoy reading premium articles on Medium.
