Bookmark yourself logged in using Android

March 30th, 2010

Salesforce.com’s login screen allows you to bookmark your account with your username and password in the URL and when used

We decided to emulate the same functionality. As long as you are using “https” in the URL, your password is still safe being transmitted over the internet. You just need to take extra precaution that no one has access to your phone because this one link will log you into your account directly. Let’s try it out…

First, open the Android browser and navigate to mintfly.com (stay on the login page)

1

Click on the Menu option, then click on Bookmarks

2

Click on Add

3

Click on Location

4

The original url should be “https://mintfly.com/app/login.php” and you will want to add your username and password (even token if you want) to this url. You will need to type this at the end of the URL:

?un=joe@salesforce.com&pw=mypassword123

Replace “joe@salesforce.com” with your username and replace “mypassword123″ with your password (add token if you did not grant network access).

Your new url should look like this:

https://mintfly.com/app/login.php?un=username@salesforce.com&pw=mypassword123

Tap the “OK” button and your new bookmark will now log you in directly!
