Registering with a Web site often means making a deal with the
devil. You give the site information like your name, email address,
and potentially more private data such as your mailing address,
phone number, and age. But what happens with that information? You
may get inundated by spam, your name may be sold to mailing lists
and advertisers, and possibly worse. But for many Web sites, if you
don’t register, you can’t log in and use the site.
This add-on solves the problem. Go to a Web site, right-click in
the user name or password field, and select BugMeNot. A valid user
name and password will then be entered into the form. You can then
use the site without having to register. The add-on works in
concert with the BugMeNot Web site, which has many user names and
passwords for multiple sites.
