Auto Login


(Ian Bone) #1

Stop asking me for my login and password every time I launch ZWIFT on the mac. Offer a tick box to save it and autologin in future.

It’s coming!

Same for the PC, nothing more annoying than being asked to enter your credentials on a private PC that you use all the time for Zwift.


(GARNIER Stephane) #4

it’s coming too

Yes, this is a very anoying thing. And it can’t be that hard to program… I you can make an entire world full of happy people on bikes it must be a piece of cake to make an auto login feature! :slight_smile:

anything that adds faff to setting up a workout is bad. one of the nice things about Zwift is its clean and simple interface. less faff = less excuses not to get on the trainer. add autologin and its another faff out of the way :slight_smile:

Agreed with the above comments, auto login would be greatly appreciated.

In the meantime (meaning, the last several months), I’ve solved that problem externally. 

On Mac, I store the credentials in the Mac OS X encrypted “Keychain” keystore. This is where the credentials belong, and should have been from the start. My code works and is fully automated. Literally double-click the icon and you’re pedaling, zero typing or interaction.

On Windows, I’ve been working on getting those put into ‘Credential Manager’, instead of the Internet Settings. 

A member of the community has contributed an AHK (AutoHotKey) script to do automated login on Windows (and some additional hotkeys to use in-game:

And I’ve written two HOWTO documents describing how to do this on Mac and Windows:

Fantastic to hear this is on the way!

At the moment in order to start everything up I need to fire up Teamviewer from my mobile. While it doesn’t take a massive amount of time it’s clunky, so the less interaction needed with the PC the better.

Cannot wait for this!  At least remember my email address like the old beta version did. 


(Eltjo de Waard) #11

Don’t know what happened, but since a few days I can select the email that I always use and it will also put my password in the right place. 

Basically it uses the Internet Explorer “Save your passwords” function. So that is a great win!
