According to an article I recently read in Wired, passwords are inherently insecure, so we're all doomed anyway.

Ah, and that's why I just log in once to the website and don't have to worry about all the others. And since my browser has my credentials saved (bad security, I know), I only have to click the login button to do so.

That works fine for the forums, but if the "parent" site doesn't have you logged in, then the dashboard and wiki also make you log in.

This is what I use for my Waze bookmark button:
https://www.waze.com/signin/?page=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.waze.com%2Fdashboard%2F
This way, the first thing I do when I get here is sign in, then immediately see my Dashboard to see how far down the ranks I'm sinking due to my laptop being out of commission. :cry: ;) I then use a second bookmark button to come to the forum (and having already logged in at the Dashboard, I'm never asked for a login at the forum).

Ah, first things first. Thanks for the tips, everyone. And would it be an idea to have an Amber-Alert-like thing in Waze? (This is the offtopic-forum after all)

With this one, I haven't had to log into the forums in about 6 months.

Alan has the forum log-in linked somewhere, but I can never remember that way of getting to it... So I go a roundabout way...

I always load up https://www.waze.com/signin/?page=http% ... 2Fforum%2F to sign in. I usually only need to do it once per day per machine.

1) Log out of everything (logout link at the top right of the page).
2) Get back to the forum. Make sure you are logged out.
3) Try to create a new topic in any forum you have permission for
4) Log-in there, check the box.
5) Then you can log-in to Waze normally.

You will stay logged into the forum for a long time (days/weeks/months) depending on your browers cookie settings as log as you don't click logout (top right) again. You will have to log-in to Waze like you normally do, but the forum should stay...
