download pdf from scribd without payingย In this article we will be seeing how to download PDF documents from Scribd without having an account, paying or uploading documents. Scribd is considered to be one of the best place of resource containing valuable documents and files covering almost all fields. It allows user to view documents online with the need of any account. But at times you might prefer to download docs for later or offline access. It does provides you an option of downloading files in PDF format but with some restrictions like you need to have an account to login or should connect via Facebook ,then to download the file you should either pay subscription fee or upload some document. Previously you can by pass this restriction by printing files using virtual PDF printer and saving it to your disk. But now Scribd changed the way in which you can print, as of now you have to download the document to get it printed hence the download restriction automatically comes into picture. When you are in a hurry these restrictions are sure to bring you frustration. So lets see how to by pass them.
download from scribd without paying or uploading

How To Download Files from Scribd for Free Without Having an Account or Uploading Documents:

You can use any of the following methods

  • Greasemonkey Scribd Downloader Script:

  • 1. If you are a Firefox user, first install Greasemonkey add-on on your browser. If you are a chrome user you need not install this add-on you can proceed to next step.

    2. Install this Scribd Downloader Scriptย .

    3. Now as usual view the documents in Scribd and click the download button available at the bottom right. You will be prompted to open or save the file, rename and save it as you wish.

  • Scribd Mobile Site to Download Documents:

  • If you are not comfortable with installing scripts use this manual method. Actually above script internally does this.

    1. Note down the unique ID of the document from the url.


    2. Go to Scribd mobile optimized site.

    3. Enter the ID you noted down and click search.

    4. Now save the file by clicking on Download Now button.

    [Update- May 05,2012]

    One of our reader’s Tony has mentioned that his browser is being redirecting back to original URL of the eBook on clicking Download Now button. This is probably because of late Scribd has changed it’s way of handling different user agents. So here is a new fix for it.

    1. Install User Agent Switcher add-on and restart your browser.

    2. Follow the above steps till step 3. Just do a search and keep, don’t click the download button.

    3. Now go to Tools-> Default User Agent-> iPhone 3.0. Now click the button. You will be able to download as usual again.

    Changing user agent in Firefox

    [Update- May 28,2012]

    Biblio has mentioned that the updated user agent fix has stopped working. Here is a new fix. Just an additional step to the latest fix. This time you need to change form method attribute to get rid of the error message.

    1. Install Firebug add-on and restart your browser.

    2. Follow the above method till step 2.

    3. Press Ctrl+Shift+C to open Firebug HTML inspect mode.

    4. Hover over the download button. You will find that form tag is highlighted in the code section below. Click post and change it to get i.e. method=”post” to method=”get”

    Change scribd form method attribute

    5. Now as before change the user agent and click download.

    [Update- July 08,2012]

    Yet again there has been an update to existing system. Here is the updated version.

    1. First change the user agent string to Android then go to mobile site and search for the doc using the unique ID or directly go to the concerned document.

    2. Now directly hit the download button.

    [Update- Sept 29,2012]

    This time after a long wait, I was able to find a workaround. Here’s how it goes.

    1. Download and install any PDF printer. For e.g. PrimoPDF

    2. Go to the appropriate document you need. From URL note the unique ID as usual.

    3. Right click on the page and select View Page Source. And search for access_key and note down the string which is between the quotes.

    E.g. key-13davbcdewnewn9m5w02

    4. Now modify ID, access key and replace it with one’s you have noted down. Then paste it in address bar and hit enter.

    5. Click on the print link in top left corner. In the pop up that comes up select print which is under standard quality.

    Download from scribd for free by printing

    6. Now you need to select primo as name of your printer. And click OK.

    7. In the PrimoPDF window that comes up, click create PDF then select a location and save it.

    *Note: Above trick is not guaranteed to work against all documents though.

    [Update- March 01,2014]

    1. Go to the concerned document and click Download or Print button on the right.

    2. You will be redirected to a page which asks you to pay or contribute to get the document.

    Download from Scribd for free by uploading new files

    3. Click on upload and select any valid text file with some content in it. Preferably type your own content, because the system checks for duplication. Or if you have some helpful document which might be useful to others, well and good you can upload that.

    5. Give some title, description and click on save and continue. You will be getting a success message as below.

    download from Scribd for free by uploading documents

    6. Click on the return to download link. Now finally press download button again to get the document.

          • kkp says:

            Hi. I need help downloading off of a 3rd party website ( which is hosting Scribd on its own URL when opening the file. I need to print it to be able to revise the notes efficiently, but it won’t let me. It doesn’t even give me a Scribd URL.

            I found ‘82025760’ in the source code, which I think is the document number for Scribd, but it won’t let me open It gives an error like “you don’t have permission to view this document”.

            I think it may be because I’m not viewing from the original website (the-notebook) but please let me know if there’s any way you can help me.

          • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


            Could you please share the name of the book instead of ID. Because when searching with ID it does not seem to return any results.

    hi shunmugha S,
    thanks for very informative post.
    Is there any trick to download the paid documents from scribd?

  10. raj says:

    hi.. this trick didn’t work for me.. i am using firefox 11. i have installeed the greecemonkey add-on and scribd script. but i couldn’t find the download button at the bottom right of the webpage.. i tried restarting the browser many times.. someone please put the screenshot..

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:

      Try the userscript now. Author of the script has updated it. The problem is because Scribd has changed it’s design layout.

  11. deb says:

    but nowadays these tricks are not working.

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


      These tricks do work may be you should give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚ Only old trick of using PDF writer has stopped working which I have mentioned in the article itself.

  12. Tony says:

    I’m also using Firefox 11 and it’s not working for me. I just installed GreaseMonkey and the script today so I have the most up-to-date version.

    The URL of the document I am trying to download is:

    If I try to download the site, the browser just returns me to the original URL. The same thing happens when I try to download the site using the “mobile” option. I just get taken back to the URL above…

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


      Really appreciate you for taking time to explain the actual problem you were facing. I have updated the article to address your problem, try now.

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


      Thanks for your comment. All online document downloader’s have stopped working since scribd updated it’s system of late. Even the above service does not work, you are again being redirected to original URL of ebook on clicking download. As of now 2nd method I have mentioned seems to work. Do give it a try.

  39. Alexander says:

    Latest fix doesn’t work for me…. This is the document I’m trying to download:

      Seems like for this book the author has disabled download option. That’s the reason why it is not working.

  43. Eidolon says:

    Thanks to the above information, I can download files perfectly.
    Hopefully to help others here is a step by step method:

    1. Using Firefox, install the addons:
    User Agent Switcher –
    Firebug –

    2. Restart Firefox

    3. Find document on scribd site.

    4. Note document’s ID
    ID = 44025189

    5. Go to the mobile version of the scribd site, specifically go to with the document ID appended.

    6. From the Tools menu (Press ALT if Firefox menubar not visible) click ‘Default User Agent’ and select ‘iPhone 3.0’. Now Firefox will appear to sites as if it is running on an iPhone.
    Note: Change back, via Tools menu select ‘iPhone 3.0’ and then select ‘Default User Agent’ option.

    7. Press Ctrl+Shift+C to open Firebug HTML inspect mode and hover over the download button for a short time until a section of code appears in the Firebug window (normally at bottom).

    8. Right-click the download button to set the inspection point, else if you move the mouse to the lower screen it will pass over and inspect HTML other than the download button.

    9. In the Firebug window look for the preceding form tag and click on the value ‘post’ of the method attribute, make sure the value ‘post’ is now in a little edit box; delete post and enter ‘get’.
    (This is shown clearly in a screen shot at the beginning of this page.)

    Eg. The 2nd line is the code for the download button

    Changed to:

    10. Now click the download button and the file will be downloaded.

    In the example used, the file was saved as “uCiyFrdC353hg_kiC1feAx2uhhg”, use a hex editor or file identification utility (eg. File Investigator 1.50, originally by Robware, a freeware version can be downloaded from to determine file type and then rename the document with the correct file extension.
    I renamed uCiyFrdC353hg_kiC1feAx2uhhg to Shadowrun_14_Nosferatu.pdf

    Hope this helps in some way, and thanks to the original author(s) of this article.

    • Eidolon says:

      Note: Only change to ‘iPhone 3.0’ once the download button is visible via the mobile version of the site. Change back via Tools menu select ‘iPhone 3.0’ and then select ‘Default User Agent’ option to display the download button of another document.

    • Eidolon says:

      Step 9 did not display the example properly so i will try and re-post now using encasing pre tags.

      Eg. The 2nd line is the code for the download button

      • Eidolon says:

        lol nevermind you should get the idea from the picture in the article section [Update- May 28,2012]

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


      Wow! Thanks a lot for taking your precious time in putting together the entire steps! I am sure it will be of immense use to all readers.

      Key points to note are:

      – Change your User Agent to iPhone 3.0 just before you click Download button. Till then you need not change it.

      – Similarly change post to get before you click download. Refer the screenshot.

      • Frank says:

        – DO NOT switch back User Agent (I.E. switch to “Default User Agent”) until the download is finished.

        (many thanks to Shunmugha Sundaram and to Eidolon!)

  44. L0minus says:

    Thank you Shunmugha & Eidolon, your method works perfectly!

    About the useragent, the iPhone 3.0 didn`t work by me, so I changed it to a Android useragent, that is also possible!

  45. I need to to thank you for this very good read!! I certainly loved every little bit of it.
    I have got you book marked to check out new things you postย…

  46. hey says:

    Hey, there’s an even easier way to download from Scribd. I run Fiddler 2, set a break point, click download and then edit the request header to say ‘GET’. Takes 2 seconds, lol.

  47. Blind says:

    Last updated method worked like a charm… Thank you!

  48. Andre says:

    I’m sorry but i can’t use the fiddler2 method. Can you explain the steps better, please? Thanks from Italy!

  49. The updated method worked perfectly.. Sundaram thanx for the article man…

  50. Mohammad Irfan says:

    Sundaram.. thanks for the article.. updated one worked very well.. thanks again….

  51. merci says:

    since you have deleted my comment – me asking whether this is legal, it probably isn’t safe. your post makes it give a false sense of legality, and if it were all normal.
    while scribd may infringe on copyright themselves, anyone who – using this method – grabs (steals?) documents off their database is then breaking laws twice? 1) copyright infringements (if it is copyrighted etc) and then 2) breaking in to scribd servers using their buggy coding. how would this be called if one did this with an online shop – ordering something like a pair jeans for free to be delivered home.
    don’t get me wrong, i think it is disgusting that scribd forces you to pay or upload useless stuff to download. and i am sure folks at scribd are fully aware that it is free books people are after.
    but as i said, people might break laws twice by using this method. and no one knows whether scribd or some content mafia people will ever want to go after them. rules and international cooperation are tightening. just think about ACTA. or megaupload.
    again, the problem here is: is this legal? or breaking laws. and your post (and the bug and tools itself) makes it look as if one were just doing the most normal thing on earth. are they?

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


      Thanks for your comment and in depth insight! I did not deleted your comment it was caught up in spam queue because of the email id you have given. I don’t find any thing wrong in you expressing your concern given the fact we don’t encourage copyright infringing ourself. I have just pointed out that this is possible I am not forcing anyone to use this method to download stuffs for free. Decision is totally left to readers hands. It’s for them to decide whether to use it or not. Probably I will add a disclaimer note. Hope I have answered your concerns ๐Ÿ™‚

      • merci says:

        thanks for your answer. and yes, please put a disclaimer in if you want. it’s all about awareness and decisions. have a good day.

        • Shunmugha Sundaram says:

          Good to have readers like you ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you stay in touch and enjoy the contents posted here. Cheers!

        • Ana von Bunners says:


          I think you are barking up the wrong tree by attempting to attack Mr. Sundaram for writing an article on how to obtain a lot of the FREELY LICENSED content on Scribd. Mr. Sundaram has already pointed out that authors of content on Scribd have the option to enable or disable downloads of their documents, and one would assume that if a particular author wished to disallow users from copying or downloading their works, they would have simply disabled the ability of users to download said works. From what i have read so far, it does not appear that Mr. Sundaram is offering up any code to bypass the wishes of any of the actual AUTHORS of the content on Scribd when a user makes it clear to him that what they wanted to download is unavailable by its author(s).

          I personally was driven to Mr. Sundaram’s article while attempting to obtain a copy of a document that is licensed under CREATIVE COMMONS ATTRIBUTION NON-COMMERCIAL SHARE-ALIKE 3.0 UNPORTED LICENSE. Thus, my intent to download this document–AND FURTHER SHARE SUCH DOCUMENT (as long as I attribute the original author to the work, charge no money for it, and include a copy of the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike 3.0 license with the work) is perfectly LEGAL and appropriate as these are the exact intentions that the license of this document dictates.

          Furthermore, even if the document I was trying to obtain was under an “All Rights Reserved” copyright, I doubt Scribd could even claim “publishing” rights as many of the documents uploaded to Scribd have already been published (the one i am looking at has been published by Lund University), the author has merely *shared* his/her work in a bit of web space that he/she has paid for by virtue of having a Scribd account (as of this writing, no accounts are free). So at best, Scribd is acting as one of many DISTRIBUTORS–who do not receive copyright protections from an author or publisher’s work.

          I am a composer and publish many of my scores under the same license and would not hesitate to take legal action for copyright infringement against any website who attempted to withhold my content in order to extort others for monetary (commercial) gain, given that the license clearly states that my scores are not to be shared for commercial use. Furthermore, if I were to publish a book of scores that i have written with, say…Mel-Bay (who publishes books of written music) under an All Rights Reserved copyright–though the various music stores who sold this book could charge whatever they wanted for commercial gain, they could not claim “rights” to the work, and therefore would not have any legal grounds for copyright infringement.

          So to summarize, what Mr. Sundaram appears to be doing here is advocating freedom of information for free information, which to my knowledge, is legal. What Scribd is doing on the other hand, is *questionable* at best and should be investigated.

    Here is an alternative to your latest fix for people who have the webdeveloper addon ( : in the “forms” menu, go to “convert form methods” and select “POST to GET”. Then click on download.
    (I’m not 100% sure of the exact wording, as I don’t use this addon in english)
    It avoids installing firebug in addition of webdeveloper.

  55. Amos says:

    Wow, works for me, thanks man…

  56. Try this, working 100%, with images from the before tutorial (tested in Chrome):

    1. Install User Agent Switcher add-on and restart your browser (not necesarry on Chrome).

    2. Follow the above steps till step 3. Just do a search and keep, donโ€™t click the download button.

    3. Now go to Tools-> Default User Agent-> Android-> Motorola Xoom.

    4. With Chrome, click 2, inspect element. As is described before: Hover over the download button. You will find that form tag is highlighted in the code section below. Click post and change it to get i.e. method=โ€postโ€ to method=โ€getโ€

    5. Now just hit “download” button, and nothing alse.

    Voila! Is working.

    Hi Sir Shunmugha,

    It’ts good to discover your post. But it’s sad because Firefox was blocked by our office.. I hope you can find time to have a version for other browsers.. BTW, my browser is Seamonkey 2.10…

    • Sorry to hear that. But this metod only works with Firefox and Chrome.

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:

      Add-ons mentioned in this article are available for SeaMonkey too. Just install them and follow the steps.

        but it says that the add ons are not compatible with my browser?

        any explanation Si?

          May be it’s not compatible with the version you are using.

    Second problem: If I first set the user agent to Iphone 3.0 I am able to view the mobile site. But if perform a search using the unique document ID and click on the result, the screen goes blank. I can not progress any further.

    Do you have any advice?

    Thank you.

  122. GEAGAE says:

    This really works, for those who still cant download, please change the user agent to another mobile browser agent instead of Iphone 3.0,
    grab a list of XML agents here and import it to useragent plugin

    then change it to other mobile device like mobile opera for android etc… there are plenty of them

    Here’s what I had to do though, the only thing that wasn’t working was the searching on the mobile site :/
    (it wasn’t working for any search term at all strangely)

    -installed firefox addon “User Agent RG” required no restart
    -found the unique id of the document in the url and copied it.
    -switched user agent to android
    (hit “alt” on firefox to make the toolbar appear in the top of the screen, went to tools, useragent, then clicked android)
    -then I went to the mobile site “/mobile/
    and clicked on a random document at the home page
    -replaced the unique number in the url of the random document with the one of the doc I wanted
    -clicked download
    -renamed to .pdf
    -opened and cheered in joy and success! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Hope this helps anyone with any issues… lol

    Hello there! I was doing great until it came to editing the code.. I can’t seem to figure out what I’m supposed to edit as well as what “user agent” is.

  173. asystole says:

    I will try to download and post any requests made. I will keep the files available for 7 days and then they will be removed to make room for newer files. So check back within a day to see if I fullfilled your request.

    That being said, I am able to download these files using nothing more that the directions above with the added part of:

    “[Update- July 08,2012]

    Yet again there has been an update to existing system. Here is the updated version.

    1. First change the user agent string to Android then go to mobile site and search for the doc using the unique ID or directly go to the concerned document.

    2. Now directly hit the download button.”

    • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


      Thanks a lot for taking your precious time to help out the readers! Appreciate your genuine effort.

    • davidjerk says:

      Hi Asystole,
      Thanks for pointing out the tip. However, how do I change it to Android as I could only change it to iphone in Firefox browser in my PC.

      Hi Shunmugha,
      Thanks for the wonderful effort.

      • Shunmugha Sundaram says:


        You are most welcome! I would suggest you to share the files by uploading to file sharing sites because readers might not be comfortable sharing their email id’s in public ๐Ÿ™‚

Even the 7th EDITION would do…The textbook is preferred, but I’ll take a study guide, anything!

      Please share the URL of the concerned document so that we can download it for you.

            As I have dozens of Android options to choose from (In user agent) I could spend forever trying your method.But my time and internet allowance would go well beyond the join up fee.
            In other words your system as explained does not work.Sorry but that is what I have found.By the way if I did have to use Firebug,on my version of FFox,it is not compatible.So this may work for others,but not for me.

          • WMD says:


            If you are using the User Agent spoofer detailed in the instructions, there is only 1 Android option. I had no problem grabbing your file. I posted the link as a response to your post below.
