Firefox and Google Chrome add-on that lets you log in to websites by scanning a QR code with your smartphone.
Memorizing user names and passwords is a nightmare; using the same combination to all of the accounts is too risky, so people are often using different variations with some priority rules – but with so many online/cloud services, it’s not a simple task too.
You can always count on your browser to remember those combinations for you, but then again, what happens when you switch computers?
Scan2Login (by Holabar ltd) is a unique app that allows you to automatically log in to any website by scanning a generated QR code with your smartphone. The system combines a smartphone app (currently available only for Android) with a FireFox/Chrome extension. To login, all you need to do is pull out your phone, point to the QR code, and you are logged in automatically.
The process is simple and quick, without compromising on security. It means you can use longer (and therefore stronger) passwords, without wasting time trying to remember or manage them. The app does it for you, it does it quickly and in a very friendly way.
Here’s how it works:
The Scan2Login QR code is totally anonymous. It generates random number and does not keep any private information. The login data is stored encrypted only on your smartphone and transferred (using a secure channel) to the addon only when needed.
