How to Bypass Deviantart's Lame Mature Filter

Used to be where you could just put in your birthday and view the art. NOPE, not anymore. Now you have to sign in. 10/10 design.

Or do you... ?

Turns out after a little bit of investigating, I found a way to get past this without signing in or downloading anything. So, on the page where the filtered art is, just right-click anywhere on the page and click "View Page Source". Then do a quick Ctrl+F search for "backend". You should find two links. One to an XML file and one to a JSON file. They both have the final link we need though, but just click on the top one for now, and then copy the entire long URL inside the URL line of that file and paste it into your address bar. Boom, you got the image.

There's also an add-on you can download that will do the same thing for you, but I don't use Deviantart much at all, and I like to keep a minimum amount of add-ons.

UPDATE: This is still confirmed to work. Are you copying the ENTIRE URL listed in the XML/JSON file?
 

Unknown

What is the URL?

What do you mean by URL inside the URL line?

Please condense your replies to one post next time, please.

So, yes, this is legal. But are you even getting the page source? Are you right-clicking and selecting View Page Source? Note that it's not the Inspect Element option.
