How to share account access without risk or verification checks

As online marketers juggle numerous accounts, from social media to e-commerce platforms, the challenge lies in managing access for all people involved while avoiding bans. In this blog, we will discover how to efficiently grant access to multiple accounts without triggering alarm bells.

There are three ways marketers share account access: offline storage, online storage, and session sharing. Let’s look into them and see which option is the safest one.

Offline sharing

When a plain-text password is shared with someone, and they log into the account on their device, it is considered offline sharing. This method is quick and easy, but it is neither secure nor efficient.

  • You must reveal passwords to another person. If that person misuses the account, it may result in financial loss. Even if they are completely trustworthy, there is still a chance they will mishandle your passwords or use a compromised device. It makes accounts and data vulnerable to third-party access.

  • Security checks may be a problem. Ever noticed how major platforms like Facebook and PayPal go the extra mile to keep your accounts secure? They do location verification and strong security checks when you log in. But here's the catch: if you try to access your account from a different location or device, it triggers additional verification steps, like Facebook's "Name Your Friends" challenge or PayPal's "Verify Through SMS" protocol. These checks are there to protect you, but if too many red flags pop up, your account could face a suspension or even a permanent ban.

Online sharing

When you share passwords through a tool like LastPass, that is called online sharing. Online sharing is slightly more secure, but still not completely safe, and still prone to issues.

  • Passwords may be intercepted. If you or the person receiving the password doesn't have a secure device, it opens the door for a man-in-the-middle attack. This way, a third party could gain access to your account without you even knowing.

  • Security checks still detect unusual access. Even if someone else accesses your accounts without actually typing in the password, online platforms are clever enough to know it's not you logging in. And guess what? It leads to those annoying security checks again, which can cause further problems.

Online sharing is overall better than offline sharing – but there is only one secure way to share accounts without raising red flags.

Session sharing

Session sharing may be the answer to this riddle, and you will find it in Multilogin. Essentially, it works by sharing access to a virtual browser profile with another Multilogin user.

  • Passwords are safe. In fact, they are not involved in the process at all. Instead, a cookie file with an active session ID is transferred. When the other user visits a website, it grabs that cookie file, spots the active session ID, and voilà! They're automatically logged into the right account without a password. And the best part is that they can't change the password if they wanted to.

  • Cookie transfers are secure. The cookie file is transferred with asymmetrical encryption, which means it is encrypted with the other user’s public key and can be decrypted only with their private key. In essence, even if the cookie file is intercepted, the hijacker will not be able to decode it or use it to gain account access.

But let's not forget about those sneaky security checks websites use to ensure it's really you accessing the account. With Multilogin you can outsmart them using the handy tips below.

IP-dependent data

Just as we've mentioned earlier, websites check fingerprints associated with your IP address, such as geolocation, time zone, and other parameters. To avoid raising suspicion, these fingerprints must match the ones used by the person who granted you account access.

The good news is that you can easily achieve this with Multilogin by adding a proxy to your virtual browser profile. As a result, regardless of where you access the session from, IP-dependent data remains consistent. Check out this helpful post for more valuable insights on choosing the best proxy for your project.

Hardware fingerprints

This is where things get tricky. It's not just your IP address that websites scrutinize. They also examine your hardware fingerprints, like canvas and AudioContext. You’ve probably guessed it right: these fingerprints need to match for all users accessing the session. But fret not, because we've got you covered with three effective methods to achieve this.

  • Use Multilogin on identically configured virtual machines (VM) or virtual private servers (VPS) with hardware fingerprints set to “Noise”.

  • Use Multilogin on identical PC models that share the same hardware, driver, and OS setup. Since these devices have the same hardware configuration, fingerprints will stay consistent across multiple devices.

  • Use Multilogin on Mac computers. As they are built similarly, the same scenario will apply as with identical PC models.

By employing these methods, you can ensure that your hardware fingerprints remain consistent, and that your identity is undetectable.

Unlock risk-free collaboration

As you've probably realized by now, session sharing is the ultimate solution. Whether you are working at a marketing agency or as an independent SMM specialist, sharing account access with your team members or virtual assistants requires the right tools. With Multilogin you can ensure seamless and secure session sharing, empowering you to collaborate effectively and protecting your valuable accounts from bans. It's the smart choice for those who take account management seriously.
