 Warning and Pay Wall Messages (for Customer Support)

The News Archive Portal, powered by Google One Pass, monitors your number of News Archive article views. As a reader, you are allowed to view a set number of unique articles. After viewing a few articles, you are presented with a warning message that indicates which content you have unlimited access to and which content will require you to purchase an access plan to read beyond your free article views. You can either sign up for access now or continue reading your article.


After viewing you final free article view, you are presented with a pay wall message that indicates that you must now use Google One Pass' secure online access service (via Google Checkout) to purchase an access plan to obtain unlimited access to News Archive content. If you already purchased an access plan, sign in to Google One Pass using the Google account associated with your purchase.
