BugMeNot (1) is a free internet service that provides Usernames and Passwords thereby bypassing the mandatory registration in websites.Started in August 2003 by an anonymous person, later revealed to be Guy King, it aims to allow Internet users to access websites that have registration walls (for instance, that of The New York Times) with the requirement of compulsory registration. This came in response to the increasing number of websites that request such registration. Many Internet users find this to be an annoyance and a potential source of spam e-mail. BugMeNot itself used to parody these sentiments in its own fake registration form.

To help make access to their service easier, BugMeNot hosts a bookmarklet that can be used with any browser to automatically find a usable account from their service. They also host extensions for the web browsers Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome
