Does anyone else get this when retrieving the BRM freeroll password?

Is this suppose do something other than give me a pop-up ad?

Is BRM tracking players or something?

if your having issues seeing the pass contact support the first time i noticed the "click to show" it gave me and others issues but shortly was working fine a message pops up with the pass and a quick blurb about not sharing password on facebook and what not. its not working unfortunately still the regular donkfest but its a good attempt by brm like to see the effort

It gives you password for the tournament 15 mins before it starts. If you clicked before then you ll get pop-up add.
So watch the times.

Cheers.

If you're on the page that lists all the freerolls and you click on "Click to show", then this will happen:
1) A pop-up that shows the password, which you click "OK" at.
2) Another pop-up from an advertiser, currently Stargames casino.
3) Also, where the text "Click to show" used to be, the password now is.

That's it.

If you're on the actual freeroll listings page (a single freeroll), then you'll likely see a pop-up banner first with the message "click to show freeroll password" on top of it. When you click on the banner, the same thing will happen as above. If you clicK "ESC" to clear the pop-up banner, you will instead have to click a link down in the text where it says "Password is hidden - click the pop-up banner to reveal it, or click here!".

This was tested in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome where it worked.

If this is not what you are seeing, then please contact me on skype: bankrollmob_tony
- then you can share your screen with me, so I can see exactly what's going on at your screen, as you click on the link.

Impressive.
Nice way to stop the "Password bots" softwares.
Now I guess only password shared "manually" get through?

Should definitely reduce the number of sites sharing BRM passwords.

Nice. Thumbs Up

I doubt this was the reason, since the password is still present in plain text on the page; it just is not visible for you, until you click.

Any software automatically trying to get it from the page, will have no problem doing so. You would need a captcha to prevent this...

I know, because I tried it...

It would also need to be able to login, as passwords are only visible to logged-in members.

That is true. You need an account. I was simply pointing out that the new pop-up is not meant to stop bots, because it wouldn't.

The fact that you need an account should provide a little bit of protection, since the bot would need to go through the trouble of getting an account...

I'm a software developer, so it is in my nature to be lazy Smile. That's why I wrote a little script, that logs into the site, goes to the freerolls page, extracts the password for me, and copies it into my clipboard. This is for personal use only, just because I'm lazy. I would never share passwords or this script for that matter, with anyone else. I'm mentioning it, because it shows that these things are easily possible. It would not work with captcha's... Smile

marqis,

Yep - it's possible, as you've also proven for yourself. I don't think we will ever add captcha to the freeroll passwords page, as most password thieves are humans, I'm quite sure (but of course not 100% sure), so it wouldn't matter anyway.

I agree with this completely.

As to the motives of these "humans", I can only guess; Misguided Robin Hood complex...?
