App to bypass login screen in school wifi?

Are there any apps for the mac that would bypass the login screen in the school internet? It's getting very annoying for me to put it in every time I try to go on the internet for any kind of small thing.

That's probably a proxy that is not setup correctly for kerberos. Talk to the school IT department. Bypassing a proxy will just leave you with no internet. Unless you have deferred saving password to the keychain (which you should be doing).

I don't think I'd lose internet if I bypassed it. There are people in my school bypassing it, but one of them is a good hacker, and the other one has a windows computer. I'm attaching a photo of the login screen, maybe it will help.

What does this have to do with a Macbook Pro?

Anyway.....
That's what is known as a "walled garden." Basically if you go to a site that isn't whitelisted (by either IP address or hostname depending how it's set up), it'll redirect to that login page.

If other people have gotten around it, then whoever set up your WiFi access didn't have a clue what they were doing.

So is there anyway I could get passed it?
Also, I said macbook pro, because there might be some hacking programs to bypass this login screen, that only work on windows computers. Just trying to give additional information.

This thread really doesn't have anything whatsoever to do with a Macbook Pro.

not to mention we would be helping someone break into a network. If the school were to find out about it, people doing it could be expelled and prosecuted.
