Hi,

I have created an account in online webpage test and I want to use script option to login to a site. Is this safe as those information are sensitive (I mean I cannot give my UN/PW to anyone)?

BR,
Anushka

Its best to avoid passing username password onto internet in any medium.
Setting up a private instance of WPT is definitely a better option for enhanced security.

Another way to do it for short term testing is to log in on your local desktop, grab the local session cookies that the service uses and use the setCookie command to use the same session for the test and then log out of the service to make the session invalid.

That's a fair number of hoops though and a private instance tends to work a lot better for ongoing testing.
