A number of our most active users requested that we make it easier to return to the service without having to sign in each time. This turned out to be more difficult than we expected, but we've done it.
Now when you click SIGN IN at the upper right corner of our home page
instead of launching a pop-up window you'll see a new "sign in bar" with fields for your email address and password, and a new ENTER button.
To complete the process, you can either click the ENTER >> button, or just hit "Enter" or "Return" on your keyboard.
Now here's the cool part:
From now on, users who don't SIGN OUT will be signed in automatically when they return to HOS.com on the same computer.
Users on shared or public computers should Sign Out to protect their accounts. When you Sign Out, you'll have to Sign In when you return. If you are on the same computer, your email address will be entered into the proper field, and you will only have to enter your password.
If your session "times out" (you stream for more than 12 hours), you will have to sign in again, but we make it easier: both fields will be filled in, and you can Sign In with one keystroke on the Enter or Return key, or one click on the ENTER>> button.
To minimize Sign Ins, don't Sign Out.To protect your account on shared computers,
When you come back you'll be signed in automatically.
Sign Out —then Sign in each time.
UPDATE: Duh...seems we forgot the "I forgot my password" feature. How ironic is that?
We've fixed this with a new link that opens our old pop up log in with a "forgot password" field.
