    Arrow Need help: Link to log in automatically
    The link I had in my booksmarks that included my username and password stopped working awhile back. It lands on a page at CJ that says it does not exist any longer.

    Does someone where have the new link format?

    Thanks!

    Login link? I usually just login from the home page since there is a login box there and my Roboform fills it in but is this what you're looking for - https://members.cj.com/member/publis...advertiserid=1

    I think what Michelle is looking for is a URL like www-cj-com/login.asp?username=michelle12345&password=abcdef (ideally prefixed with https:// and not http:// ).

    I used to have URLs like this bookmarked for CJ and some other networks (years ago), but it's a very poor security practice, because it transmits your username & password in a way that is somewhat easier to "intercept." I believe that most networks have revised their logins to disable this option.

    Of course, most of us allow our browser (or add-on tool) to manage user names and passwords, so that if someone else gets access to our computers, they can access our accounts -- but disabling username & password URL parameters at least provides slightly more security against interception of your "identity" data.

    Mark is right. This is a bad practise. Just the same, if you have firefox as an example, it will ask you if yu want firefox to remember the password blah blah blah; | | Yes |*| never for this site | | Don't Ask Me Again { I think thats all three anyway } .

    Hope this helps.
