Android :: Storing Username And Password?

Dec 18, 2009

If I want to store the username and password to be used inside an Android application, what is the best way to do it? Is it through the preferences screen (but what if the user misses this?), or pop up a dialog box and ask the user for the credentials? If so, I do have to maintain state for the application. How would I do this?

Android :: Invalid Username And Password When Trying To Unlock G2

Oct 14, 2009

I know this is not really the place to post this message, but this is the closest thing I could find to google android support. So a friend of mine did too many wrong patterns and the phone is asking for my username and password. When i fill in my login and password, it says "invalid username or password". I tried it like 20 times.I have of course verified the username and password on my gmail, and it works fine. Has this ever happened to anyone ? Is there a way around it ? I refuse to reset my phone to factory settings, i have all my contacts, and important notes in there.I was really looking forward to android, but stuff like this is just unacceptable, really disappointing.

Android :: How To Authenticate Mobile App Without Username And Password?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm building a Webapp that uses OpenId to authenticate users, like Stackoverlfow does. There will be a mobile App too, e.g. Android or iPhone. These Apps have to authenticate or login somehow, to access data and update stuff that belongs to the user. Since there is no username and password one could provide to authenticate the mobile device, I wonder how to achieve this.Two ways came into my mind:Generate some key on the server that must be entered on the device. This key will be send as auth-key when the mobile device sends or requests data and the user can be linked that way. When using this Option, the key should be transported somehow to the user, so he doesn't have to type it in. Maybe via email, SMS or by scanning a barcode. The mobile App uses the Browser or shows an integrated Web-Panel that opens a special page of the Webapp. On this page, the user has to login in, and could then allow the mobile App to read and write data. My question is: Are both ways possible and save? Which one would you prefer? What are the details to watch out for? Are there any other ways to do this? If I got it all right, it would not be possible to use OpenId on the Device, and link the mobile and the webapp that way, right?

Feb 16, 2010

I just got the sample sync adapter code running on the emulator, but how do I add account in it when it asks for username and password? And I have the following questions

1) SampleSyncAdapter is for 2.0 and in 2.0 emulator I don't see the Accounts & Sync options in the Settings, am I missing anything? so for this I compiled this app in 2.1 and ran on 2.1 emulator

2) In 2.0 emulator when I launch Accounts option from Contact app, it crashes? I saw this a raised bug, is this solved?

Android :: Send Email (Username And Password Authentication)

Nov 21, 2010

I am trying to send an email to a specific address by using my own email. So far, I know that I can use android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND to send an email. For instance:

final Intent emailIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND);
emailIntent.setType("plain/text"); emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, new String[]{"blabla@gmail.com"});
emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "Log-in Sucessful");
emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "Hi");
Activity context = null; context.startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, "Send mail..."));

However, I do not know whether ACTION_SEND can accept username and password as well. This username and password basically will be used to authenticate the email sender. It's just like when you need to log-in into your gmail account before you can compose and send an email to someone.

Android : WebView.set HttpAuth Username Password Not Working?

Jun 28, 2010

I am developing part of an Android application that needs to use a WebView to open a password protected site. I am using SharedPreferences to provide the username and password from when the user logs in the app for the first time. I've tested the credentials it's returning, so I know that those are correct. When I run this in the emulator, the site says that I'm unauthorized (even though I am). Here's the code...

So does anyone know why this wouldn't be authenticating me? Should the realm string that I put "" for actually be something?

HTC EVO 4G :: Incorrect Username / Password

Aug 22, 2010

My wife prefers the standard email instead of the Gmail App but when I try to setup her account, it keeps telling me that the username and/or password is incorrect. I know it is correct because I can login to gmail.com without a problem and I do have Imap enabled in Gmail. I also tried it with K-9 mail and it doesn't work there either.

Android :: Pass A Username And Password Back Into A Webview Securely?

Jul 1, 2010

I have a user's name and password stored in their preferences.

How do I go about passing it back into the webview in a secure way?
I know if I do this it will work, but it just seems bad. There has to be a better way to post the variables.

webview.loadUrl("http://mysite.com?name="+username+"&password="+somepassword);

I've been looking for days and can't find anything, which make me think I'm missing something obvious.

Android :: Best Reasonable Practice For Locally Storing Password?

Nov 3, 2010

I am considering adding a means by which my app can perform functions over Google Voice, and the functionality would make little sense if I required the user to type in a password.I'd like a reasonable plan for storing the password locally and sending it (through google-voice-java) when demanded by Google Voice.Clearly, I'd like to properly represent the risks of the chosen scheme honestly to the user. I'd like the storage to be based atop writing it into a SharedPreferences created with flags.What form of obfuscation is suitable, and with what available salting ingredients and such should I customize it?

Motorola Droid :: Invalid Username Or Password (Unlocking)

Nov 18, 2009

My first Droid had problems with basic applications such as the Messaging and Phone apps resetting, so I exchanged it. Everything seemed great with the new phone, until I woke up one morning to see a screen stating that too many incorrect patterns had been attempted, and I should reset the phone by entering my Google account information. However, upon entering my information, I immediately received a message "Invalid username or password." There was no apparent attempt to even validate the information. Anyhow, I returned to the Verizon store and after the representative researched for half an hour or so, he decided to factory reset the phone. Now, this would not have been a problem, except that I purposely entered an incorrect pattern five times afterwards, to get to the "Forgot pattern" screen, and as I had suspected, it refused to accept my information. I was wondering whether this would be valid grounds to exchange my phone once again. I'm not content with having to completely erase everything on my device each time my phone gets into somebody else's hands.

General :: Google Account - Username And Password Do Not Match

Jan 10, 2013

I can login to Gmail.com on any desktop/mobile browser however whenever I try to add a Google Account on my phone, I get this error: Your username and password do not match. (To recover your account information, go to URL.... on your computer.)"

I have tried changing the password but its still the same. I know its not a password issue as I can login to google.com on my desktop and laptop.I also went to this site and tried to add a Google account but it did not work. Tried setting up a different Google ID and it worked right away. So it looks like there has to be some issue with my Google ID.

how it happened as it was working fine until I reset my phone.
