AccessURL shares cookies instead of passwords. Here’s how it works:
Security conscious design
AccessURL does not rely on or have access to usernames or passwords. AccessURL relies on cookies instead. On most websites, that means if you sign out, everyone using your Access URL will get signed out too. This is one of the ways AccessURL prioritizes security above everything.
By design, AccessURL’s server cannot read user’s data. It doesn’t have the password (which is unique for each Access URL). The Firefox Add-On encrypts the data before it reaches the server and doesn’t give the server the password. For encryption, AccessURL uses the industry-standard: AES.
