Email Alert Links Automatically Log Me In To My SA Account

Jbreezy 6 months ago updated by SA Jacob Maltz 6 months ago 1

When I receive an email from SA, and I click on a link to an SA article, I am automatically logged into my web browser; Firefox.

That means that my login and password information must be embedded within the links in the email. I do not want this. I'm concerned with that as a possible security issue. If someone can intercept one of my SA emails, they could then click on one of my links and be automatically logged into my account.

I've set my Firefox settings to not save logins or passwords, or to save browser viewing history, yet I'm immediately logged into my SA account the moment I click on the link in the SA email.

Please either help me clear this issue up, or let me know if this is a security problem with SA.
