Automatic login just with token_auth, how?

I know i can login with link like:


Is it possible to login just with the token_auth same like API calls?

I solve this by writing simple plugin. See

Hi @cb1986ster, the page of the URL was 404. Can you update it?

Hi, @luohui8891

The webpage is in the web archive, but I really doubt a 6 year old plugin will work. (Expecially alter the large auth changes in 3.0)

And the more I think about it, the more sure I am that this would be a bad idea. Because the auth-token is saved unhashed in the database, it would act as a extremely insecurely stored password.

Got it. Thank you.
You are right, using username and md5 password is better.
