Login Assistant is a simple and extremely lightweight login/redirection component for Joomla that makes logging in to your site as easy as just following a link, but still secure because both username and password (may be left blank) encoded into this link are also encrypted.
Login Assistant does not log in a user silently. The user is first redirected to login screen with username and password (optional) already filled in with the data encrypted in the provided link. He has just to click Login button and then will be redirected to the specific page of your site (also encoded in the login link).
This extension may be useful for assisted login to view demo pages of your site or a support ticket progress online. Each link created by Login Assistant backend utility can be included to an email message or inserted as a link in an article.
The target page (where the particular user will be redirected after login) can be defined individually for each link created.
– A user does not have to (and actually can not) know his username and password to login to your site
– Both username and password in the link generated are encrypted
– You control how your users login via Login Assistant links, if you block a user in User Manager he will not be able to enter
