Quora has become a popular question and answer site, and chances are you might have stumbled upon it either via search results on Google, or via your social networks. But one of the most annoying things about Quora is that it requires users to log in to read the answer and browse the site. Well, it won’t be a surprise if many users simply close the site instead of taking the effort to sign in just to read a single answer.

Perhaps Quora should learn something from sites like Stackoverflow, Stack Exchange and Yahoo Answers who do not require users to log in to read the answer. For some reason, Quora, not learning from these other popular question and answer sites, requires users to sign in with either a Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) or Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) account to read the first answer. This is a fine example of a terrible user interface.

So now, let’s stop complaining and learn how to bypass this issue, and read answers on Quora without signing in.

How to read answers on Quora within logging in

The trick is to simply add ?share=1 to the end of the URL and hit the Enter key.

You can now read all the answers, and continue to use Quora without being limited to anything. No longer will Quora prompt you to sign-in to read the answer.

This small trick should come in very handy for those who hate logging in just to browse a simple question and answer site.
