Automatic Login To Website like Yahoo Mail!

P: 3
Hello, I am new in PHP. Is it possible to create a PHP script that allow me login automatically to other website like Yahoo Mail & etc through a URL link. Of course, I have the legal username and password for the websites.

It depends on the respective site's security. I'm pretty sure a site like yahoo blocks login from a different referer, also you would need to know what data the site logs, e.g. session id and cookie data, and replicate that somehow

your problem is: your request is quite legal, and you want to do something to ease your surfing. BUT the things you need to get access to, to do these things, can also be abused by others to hack the system. Therefore not possible if the site has proper security (if not, they should fire their staff :P)

Ofc you can always hack their system somehow (there's no such thing as 100% secure), but that's illegal ;)

Thanks for the reply. I understand now it is not easy to login other websites automatically because of the security issues. Thanks again.
