    Hi,

    This thread may sound or seem a little stupid at first but try and help me understand.

    So, I had a peek at the freespins thread and the last post by Spintee said "Thrills, Login to your account and find 5 Free Spins waiting in Spiñata Grande".

    So I thought why not I'll log in and take a look.

    I googled Thrills and went to the site.

    I was then greeted by the start page and my Email address already sitting there on the Thrills "Start here" registration screen and an "Invalid username, shoot, already taken. Try another one."

    Now I haven't logged into Thrills in MONTHS. So why is my log in Email address just sitting there waiting for my next log in?

    I disregarded it and hit log in at the top of the screen and my Email and password are already inserted; I don't have to type a thing, just hit log in and I'm in my account.

    Now, I use firefox. Every single day I clear every little bit of browsing history so not to clog up any memory. Everything from cookies, cache, search history - everything. I even use CCleaner with 3 passes everyday.

    So how is it remotely possibly that after months of not logging into Thrills, my Email address and password are just there on the home page for me on my next visit there to log in?

    My IP address has probably even changed 20 odd times within this space.

    So I am wondering about the security of this amongst other things.

    Anyone could just hop on my computer and log into my thrills account. It doesn't matter if I restart my computer after clearing my entire history.

    Every other site on the Internet requires me to re-enter my username and password after deleting my browser history; but not thrills.

    Is it possible Thrills have "Locked" on to my network? If so isn't that illegal as it's a form of hacking? I don't for a second believe they have, just questioning the possibility.

    This is the only explanation running through my head as there is no reason why my log in details should be stored on the thrills website upon visiting it, especially taking into consideration that I constantly keep my browsers clean.

    Anyone got an alternative explanation?

    Can another Firefox user who has played at Thrills before check this out for me and possibly verify?

    by the sounds of it its the auto-complete feature in the browser that have saved those details, i cant think of anything else it could be.

    options>security>saved passwords

    and see if there is an entry in there for thrills.

    could of even been saved in another browser like chrome or internet explorer and moved over when firefox was installed if you moved your link your password would of come to should change password things up every 12 months

    Bing Bing Bing.

    That's exactly what it was.

    I had no idea I had saved my Thrills log in credentials in Firefox.

    I must have been intoxicated :p

    Now I do feel a bit silly for my paranoia lol.

    Thanks for your remedy Wild Reels!

    More of the same here lol.

    I use Google Chrome not Firefox but am always on top with clearing cache, history, cookies etc etc. This does not remove usernames and saved passwords however.

    Even after this is done, all usernames still 'appear' as I start typing them and passwords appear (blocked out) as I click relevant username.

    Take Wild Reels advice above and look into the individual settings of your browser, another alternative would be a complete uninstall/reinstall of Firefox, remember to click 'No' when it asks about usernames/passwords when you initially re-install/re visit website. Bit drastic maybe you may think but will have the desired results :)

    **Edit: Posted same time, pop this in the bin with my other useless advice ** :p

    Oh, Believe me I do click No always! I am big on my internet privacy ;)

    What happened was I made an "Exception" for Thrills in the "saved password" options panel, which meant no matter what I did my credentials would always appear for me on Thrills even without auto-complete enabled.

    TIL: I am a twit :p

    Wildreels beat me to this one, As he pointed out there is a separate settings in the browser tab it self, Normally if you computer hits another I.P addresses than it should not be auto, But saying that I fix this womens laptop a few times, I met on the internet years ago on a bingo site :) Thick as two shorts planks, Loved taking dirty pics and leaving them on there, & She was not getting no younger I can tell you :) Any way when I got the laptop I could auto log on to her sites,

    Even sometimes when you click username and on the pasword and nothing shows up, Click the left button a few times & sometimes this brings the auto feature up,

    Any way did you get free spins and win :)
