Share Me Pass is a public password database

Remember BugMeNot? The service makes available a public database of passwords that you can use to log in to services on the Internet. Some services on the Internet require you to create a free account before their contents can be accessed in full, and while that may make sense sometimes for the service, it is often an annoyance for the user who feels pressured to register to find out if the contents are suitable or not.

Users of BugMeNot shared passwords to these services that anyone could use to access the contents the site makes available.

Update: Share Me Pass is no longer available.  We suggest you check out BugMeNot instead as it is still around.

Share Me Pass is a similar service, a BugMeNot alternative if you will, that provides you with its own public database of logins that you can use to sign in to sites on the Internet without registering an account by yourself.

The website uses a similar layout, you find the search form at the top that you can use to enter a web address to find out if the service has a login for it in its database.

share your pass

You can alternatively use one of the site suggestions that are displayed below the search form. Each site is displayed with its url and country it is hosted in. A click on a url displays the login information that you can use to sign in. The username is hidden by default and you need to click on it again to reveal it.  You can report logins as not working or as a hacked or not public username. There is however no percentage listing like you find on BugMeNot, but that was not overly reliable anyway. You can add new logins for websites as well if you want to become a contributor.

If you are using the Firefox web browser you can alternatively use the official extension for the browser which provides you with one-click access to sites that are listed in the service's database.

The two services, Share your pass and BugMeNot, are not sharing the same database so that you can try one of the services first to find a login, and if you can't find a particular site or find that no login is working, use the other service to see if it has a working username and password combination. BugMeNot has an extension as well by the way.

    Hmm, this could also be useful to avoid spam. Some sites recognize if you are trying to use an address from websites like mailinator.com. Just search a login of a standard email site and reuse that email.

    I like the idea (I’ve used BugMeNot many times) but I’m always a bit nervous that I may land on an account that has been used for something bad.

    It’s sad most people no longer use computers (except for high end gaming) and as a result most links or stuff no longer works. Smartphones no matter how much processors it has will NEVER be as good as a computer simply due to the demographics it attracks which are those who just search for directions/chat and netflix which is crappy on a small screen but the majority do not know any better.

    Google uses Watson AI (the crappy one) to compile search results and has no feedback so they guess your result among others and if you do things like this or actual research you confuse it because most people are simpletons and want stupid stuff. You wind up freaking the AI out if you do scientific articles.

    Look up Watson AI vs Jeopardy which was done by a team of MIT students back in 09 and the AI kept getting skunked by the best contestants until 2011 when they developed a way for Watson to retain feedback from other players. In 2013 Watson AI had beaten the best contestants and that got organizations interested however they bought the earlier versions that has no feedback system. It was briefly in the news but for most it flew over their heads.

    It actually should’ve had a big impact in the news community as it lead to other developments BUT instead the paid pocket media only cared about transgender BS and how to have (safe) abortions totally ignoring the robot revolution that is now showing up. Now Trump is going to have to deal with the crap throw from the Obama era as things that were labeled (conspiracy theories) are being brought to lite despite attempts by the Deep State to halt them.
