Gmail 3rd Party Login, Deprecated

When you login to Passpack via the Gmail third party login, Passpack uses IMAP to ping your account and authenticate you. No email is read, just a ping to authenticate you.

Alas, this is a feature is causing panic with Gmail’s  ”Suspicious Activity” alerts. So we’ll be removing it as an option in the near future. Read this Help Center article for more info.

If you have already set up your Gmail as a 3rd party login option, you may continue to use it if you wish. Alternatively, you may choose to switch to Google friend connect.

Google Browser Sync Alternatives

Passpack replaces the password sync feature for former Google Browser Sync users.

The browser sync Firefox extension synchronized bookmarks, web history and passwords across multiple Firefox browsers by temporarily saving everything to Google’s servers. The plugin will not be updated for the new Firefox 3 release, and even Firefox 2 support will cease by the end of the year.

Passwords Sync Alternative

Passpack fits the bill — store your passwords logins and private bookmarks in one safe place online (encrypted!) and you access from any computer. And even better – no plugin needed, it’ll work on Firefox AND Safari, Opera, Explorer and mobile optimization is on the way.

Passpack users: help us spread the word!
Whenever someone is saddened by the loss of Browser Sync, cheer them up with the good news about Passpack.

Bookmarks & History Sync Alternative

Mozilla Weave offers bookmark and history synchronization across computers, or you can use the Google Toolbar to continue syncing your bookmarks.
