Dark Mode for Web Security Academy

diego | Last updated: Sep 25, 2022 07:24AM UTC

As a learner we have to spend a lot of time spending time reading on Web Security Academy. Therefore, it would be very convenient if we had an option of dark mode too.

Hi Diego, Thanks for your post. We do have a feature request in place for this, I've added you to our tracker so you are notified if the feature is released. Best regards,

Hi, I see this is an old post, so I apologize for being a necro about it. Your Web Academy site seems really nice though, and I would also like the ability to use a dark mode to view it. Would it be possible to also get added to a notification list if this feature is ever released? I noticed the site doesn't allow forced dark mode still. Thanks!

Shouldn't be too difficult for you guys honestly haha

Hi Joe, As noted earlier in this thread, we do have a feature request raised for this. We have a finite amount of developer time available so, unfortunately, we cannot implement everything and have to decide which features to concentrate on in the short term. These types of requests are triaged based on how many users have requested them, complexity, perceived benefit etc. Currently, we are monitoring this particular request to see how many users are interested in it. We will, however, update this forum thread if we have any further news to share about this feature.

Well add me to the list. Sheesh! That white background is crazy haha

Ben, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Mar 31, 2023 07:13AM UTC

Hi, This is not something we are planning to do in the short term but we can certainly add your interest to the existing feature request so that we can continue to monitor the demand for it.

Joe | Last updated: Apr 02, 2023 02:55AM UTC

I actually found a workaround. A simple extension will get the job done! So PortSwigger keep up the good work with the more important stuff LOL!

Ben, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Jul 03, 2023 07:26AM UTC

Hi Krishna, To give you some background on our process, we perform a triage process on all bugs and feature requests in order to gauge things like impact, customer demand and length of time to implement. Currently, the request to add a dark mode is currently being monitored to gauge how popular it might be.

Ben, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Nov 15, 2023 09:05AM UTC

Hi Dilor, We have not implemented this feature (it is still in our development backlog) but, in the interim, I believe that some people have used browser plugins to alter the look of the pages.

Thank you both for your interest in this feature.

X | Last updated: Nov 27, 2023 05:18AM UTC

I am also highly interested in dark mode for web security academy, and dark mode for the default browser in Burp Suite! Could the requests be open to the community, so perhaps we can help out a little bit and contribute to this wonderful platform/tool, pretty please?

Ben, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Nov 27, 2023 10:57AM UTC

Hi, Thank you for your interest in this as well. The feature requests that we are tracking are not currently publicly available but if you believe other people would be interested then please feel free to get them to add their interest here or by sending an email to support@portswigger.net

This thread is almost one and a half years old. Still not providing the dark mode feature. Pls provide it ASAP. It is irritating to look at the white background for too many hours.

Ben, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Mar 18, 2024 11:03AM UTC

Hi, We can certainly add your interest to this feature request but, to confirm, it is not currently in our short term plans.
