Recently we’ve been getting quite a few questions about the difference between Autologin and 1 Click Login. This is a really basic explanation of what each one does, just to clear things up.
It’s actually pretty simple:
Example: I want to check my mail, I hit the “Go There” button next to the entry for my Yahoo account, a new tab opens in my browser, I hit the Passpack It! button and I’m in. For this to work I just have to have Autologin activated.
Example: I am surfing the Internet normally, I come across an article on Yahoo, I decide I want to check my mail while I’m there, I click on the “Sign In” link on the page, hit my Passpack It! button and I’m in. For this to work I have to have my Passpack account open in another tab or window of my browser, Autologin activated and 1 Click Login turned on.
As you can see, 1 Click Login is basically an “extra feature” of Autologin, they get the same thing done but in different ways.
Keep in mind that while 1 Click Login is turned on, your Passpack account will not lock up so make sure you do not walk away from your computer before locking it up manually.
The Autologin section of our blog has more detailed information on Autologin and 1 Click Login, and how to set up each one.
