AccessURL lets you share your world

Websites are more flexible than ever in certain ways, allowing you to integrate several logins and use services on many devices. If you want to watch Netflix with a friend, you can do so on the TV, smartphone or PC. However, it’s not so easy to share the access you enjoy with others, not without giving them your personal logins. AccessURL is a great, free way to let others use your accounts temporarily, making the internet even more accessible. View full description

Websites are more flexible than ever in certain ways, allowing you to integrate several logins and use services on many devices. If you want to watch Netflix with a friend, you can do so on the TV, smartphone or PC. However, it’s not so easy to share the access you enjoy with others, not without giving them your personal logins. AccessURL is a great, free way to let others use your accounts temporarily, making the internet even more accessible.

Open up new online access

AccessURL is safer than giving someone your login details because it just shares your cookies, not your passwords. For example, you can use it to create a temporary URL for your Twitter account that acts as if you’re logged in, even if you are not. A friend or colleague can then use your account briefly, with ease. The design is security conscious and very easy to use. You can operate it as a simple Chrome plugin, which will allow AccessURL to integrate with any site you want to share with just a few clicks. This is a great way to let someone else open a service like Netflix, perhaps so they can help you troubleshoot.

Easier Service Sharing

AccessURL is a very interesting idea and for some it will be very useful. For businesses and anyone sharing with close friends, there isn’t much call for it. The value of this software is when you want to share something but don’t want to give away your passwords.
