POST / GET / REQUEST-ing data

Recommended Posts

Hi-ya,

Is POST better than GET in regards to a login script? Obviously GET you can enter the string in the brower address bar but they would need the correct username/password and ID's, but is there a way around POST? With post - it doesnt allow you to do that in the address bar?

Thanks

Post requires a form using method=post, so it should be 'safer' than get I guess, but as long as you check the username and password typed by the user for bad input, there should be no problem.  I mean the only difference in this case would be that they hadn't typed the username and password into the boxes.  One other thing, if your login check is on a separate page, then unless they know the name of the page then no one can really do much

You should use the Postr method for security reasons. Since the log in info appears in the address bar it is visible to everyone.
