Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think the better approach would be for you to provide us all possible options as to why you’re doing this and why you need to know. Also, how do you mean “If we keep a side username and password as a option.”

Looking forward to hearing back and helping further where we can.

    It is not possible to provide you. What software/system are you using now? What did you mean side username/password? Is this is a specific system / mechanism that requires password?

    What kind of system and or network are we talking about? What type of security is in place? Login information to what, the system, email, specific application ?? A lot more details are need for us to even guess what you are trying to accomplish. A few main reasons a login would fail is 1. it's not correct or has expired 2.network/site is down
