Login with Amazon

by Wootbot

Oh that stinkin’ red tape.

If you use “Login with Amazon” (LWA), you were just greeted with a new one-time dialog box, asking you to verify your Amazon status.

You’re probably thinking “uh oh what are they data mining about?!?!!! What about my browser history???!!!?! Call WikiLeaks!!!!!1111!!” Believe us, it’s not that cool. We just have to reconnect with LWA’s current requirements. It’s all between the computers. We never see the information.

If you don’t want to share this information, that’s fine, but it will mean that you won’t be able to use Login with Amazon any longer. Sorry. You can log in using your Woot email and password.

We hope you consent to the information sharing. JeffB is standing over me as I type this. Call WikiLeaks!!!!
