I stumble upon a website call Login2 which seems to help others gain FREE access to any website. Basically users just have to enter the URL or site name which requires signing up for access. An id with password will be provided. Users can use the id and password provided to gain access to the site. If the id and password is not valid, users can request for alternative pair of id and password. I did try out couple of times on a particular website but it doesn’t seem to work. Perhaps I’m just not lucky. This might not be such a great idea for providing ids and passwords for FREE access, but the intention or reasons behind is quite interesting.
So why would anybody want an easy free access into site that requires login id and password? Well, first of all singing up for an account can be troublesome and time consuming. You are required to fill up particular details and wait for a verification email before you are allowed to gain access to the site. It is understandable to have such a process before accessing a website. But if you found yourself repeating the same process each time trying to access a website that seems interesting, it can be annoying. Users should be given a temporally access before deciding if we should sign up for an account. If we don’t like what we saw, just leave. No string attached. What I hate most is after all the trouble filling up the details and verifying the email, the site turns out to be a big disappointment.
Usually website owners should be the one to provide temporally access using a common id and password. It seems like Login2 is able to see the demand of this service and trying to provide it. Unfortunately the method provided might not work smoothly. If you are able to come out with a better way or solution to enable users gain temporally access to websites before signing up, you might have yourself a money making opportunity.
P/S: Blog or website that provides detail review or preview for other sites is mainly about giving out information about what it is like inside a particular site after signing in. It serves the same purpose of letting users understand what they are signing up for. It helps users save time and the trouble of signing up for an account.
