 +====== Google GMail Bookmark that Logs In ======
 +
 +Note: This no longer works for me, but google has updated their page so it's no longer necessary. ​ Check out my quick article on [[Google Gmail Multiple Account Logins]].
 +
 +You can create a bookmark that automatically logs you into your Google Email (GMail) account. ​ This gives you a quick link to your email and also gives you an easy way to login to multiple accounts easily.
 +
 +Note: Both of these methods give anyone with access to your computer access to your email AND your Google password.
 +
 +===== Basic Login Bookmark =====
 +
 +Simply create a new bookmark (or favorite) containing the following URL:
 +
 +  https://​www.google.com/​accounts/​ServiceLoginAuth?​continue=http://​mail.google.com/​gmail&​service=mail&​Email=USER&​Passwd=PASS&​null=Sign+in
 +
 +Replace //USER// with your Google username and //PASS// with the associated password.
 +
 +===== Advanced Logout and Login Bookmark =====
 +
 +If you use multiple GMail accounts, you'll need to log out of one and into the other, which takes an extra layer of foo.
 +
 +Create a new bookmark (or favorite) containing the following URL:
 +
 +  https://​www.google.com/​accounts/​Logout?​continue=https%3a%2f%2fwww.google.com%2faccounts%2fServiceLoginAuth%3fcontinue%3dhttp%3a%2f%2fmail.google.com%2fgmail%26service%3dmail%26Email%3dUSER%26Passwd%3dPASS%26null%3dSign%2bin
 +
 +Replace //USER// with your Google username and //PASS// with the associated password.
 +
 +====== References ======
 +
 +I gathered the basic URL information from an [[http://​www.marcofolio.net/​tips/​automatic_sign_into_gmail_using_a_bookmark.html|Article]] by Marco Kuiper. ​ I expanded on that by using a few bits from the Jaret'​s source code for the [[http://​userscripts.org/​scripts/​show/​16341|Google Account Multi-Login plugin]]. ​ Thanks guys!
