Userless/Passwordless login

Postby robbrad » Mon Aug 08, 2016 10:33 pm

I run Subsonic behind a VPN

Id like to have it not use a user or password to login. Just go direct to front page - is this possible?

You can kind of do this right now.

I have bookmark in chrome that logs me in.

It means your password is plain text but you should create 'bookmark' with few permissions in case its ever leaked.

hmm...i wonder if the .view accepts the same md5 seed/token parameter pair that the API does. It wouldn't be secure in that anybody that intercepts that seed/token pair can continue to use it against your server, but at least they won't actually have your password as such.

Hi,
Four years ago someone ask a similar question and I gave my solution:
I created a shortcut to my subsonic -server like this:
http://myserver.subsonic.org/login.view?user=subuser&password=MySecret
Obviously you need to change what is in bold to match your settings.
This way you don't have to retype username and password every time you log in to Subsonic.
There's a nifty little program called Shortcut http://www.optimumx.com/downloads.html#Shortcut which you can use to create an encrypted shortcut.
This prevents anyone from reading your username and password in the shortcut.
