Cookie login instructions
This guide is only relevant for a hand full of services! Most of all times you will get a message in JD that leads you to this article.
Do not try these instructions on other than the advised websites in JD - it won't work!
Most of all services simply require you to enter your E-Mail/username & password in JD but for some, the following process is required instead:
1. If your browser supports browser profiles, use a separate browser profile to initiate the session.
Alternatively you can also use a private/incognito window - be sure to allow the addons described below to be used in private browsing otherwise your private window will open without installed browser addons.
It is not recommended to use your current/normal browser session because JD could interfere with it and e.g. change your default language.
2. Use your browser to login into the website yout want to use with JD like you normally do.
If that website has a checkbox like "Keep session" or "Trust this computer", be sure to enable it.
3. Exporting your cookies
Now you need to export the cookies of the website of which you want to add an account to JD.
This requires a different process depending on the browser you're using:
Opera & Chrome
a. Install the open source addon EditThisCookie.
b. Visit the website you want JD to login into and then export your cookies as shown in the screenshot below.
Doing this will copy your cookies into your clipboard so you are ready to continue with the next step.
a. Install the open source addon Flag Cookies
b. Visit the website you want JD to login into.
c. Click on the addons' symbol --> Preferences --> Scroll down until you see the "Export cookie data o clipboard" buttom from the screenshot below and click on it:
Now continue with the next step!
4. Importing your cookies in JDownloader
Open JD - go into the Account Manager, click on Add account and look for the website you want to login into.
Enter your username/E-Mail into the username field and paste your exported cookies into the password field.
JDownloader should accept your account after a few seconds.
