CloudScraper is a simple Python library designed to help you bypass Cloudflare's anti-bot page (also known as "I'm Under Attack Mode", or IUAM).

Cloudflare is continously changing and upgrading their anti-bot protection systems, making it harder for web scrapers and libraries like CloudScraper to bypass their detection methods. As a result, open source anti-bot bypassing libraries like CloudScraper can often go out of date and stop working.

UPDATE: As of now, there are a lot of report of CloudScraper not working for all Cloudflare situations. So give it a try but if it isn't working for your target website then check out this guide.

CloudScraper is a Python library built ontop of Python Requests that enables you to bypass Cloudflare's anti-bot protection systems so you can scrape data from websites who have deployed their content on Cloudflare's CDN.

Cloudflare uses numerous browser fingerprinting challenges & checks (more detail here) to determine if a request is coming from a real user or a scraper/bot.
