You will need to install a user script manager extension to install this script.
This applies in both HTTP and HTTPS sites.
Many sites (e.g. online newspapers) require you to register with the site before being able to read content. This registration is annoying, invasive, and a serious privacy risk. (Several newspaper publishing companies have been caught selling their registration information to spammers.) A site called BugMeNot.com (http://www.bugmenot.com) has sprung up to aggregate fake logins for such sites. This script takes BugMeNot one step further by integrating it into the login page itself. It retrieves all possible logins from bugmenot.com, shows their count, and you can try each one on every clicking of 'Get login from BugMeNot'.
Extra features/changes to the initial version:
Username<input> element has
type="email"(i.e. not only
Usernamefield would have focus by default. This would cause the following issue:
Usernamefield on page load,
Tested in Greasemonkey.
How to use:
After installing this script, go to any page that requires sign in.
Click on either the
Username or the
Password textbox. This is what will appear:
1/- means the 1st login out of yet unknown available logins)
Note: in login pages where where the sign in form appears as hovering/expanding element,
just open the login link in a new tab: now the script will work.
Get login from BugMeNot the script will contact bugmenot.com, and,
if it finds login(s), it will temporarily store all found logins for the current browser session via GM_setValue,
and then it will autofill the login form with the 1st found login, as shown below:
Note: you may view all found logins in Web Console.
Try to sign in with that 1st found login.
If the login is invalid, you may navigate again to the sign-in page
and try each one of the rest logins by clicking again on either the
Username or the
and then to
Try next login from BugMeNot, i.e.
2/3? It means the 2nd login out of 3 available logins.
Note that only 1 connection is done to bugmenot.com - all login attempts are done using the stored logins from the 1st attempt. You may view all stored logins in Web Console.
Also, now you may use the entry
Reset login attempt counter if needed.
Also, during this, if the Username or Password textbox are already filed with the previous login,
you'll get a prompt to
Overwrite the current login entry: (just press OK to continue).
If there were no logins found you'll get this alert box:
meaning that you can either (see the 1st screenshot for reference):
More Optionsto open(in a new tab) the relevant bugmenot page, or
Visit BugMeNotwhich will open(in a new tab) http://bugmenot.com .
