Why bother asking what-if questions to yourself when you can...
Whether providing tech support, testing a login, or testing a feature - at times, it becomes necessary to log in as a particular user. Do you know their password? Should you know it? Should you reset it?
With Authentication - As User - you don't need to know any password but your own.
Why bother asking what-if questions to yourself when you can just use the Authentication - As User plugin to log into any account using your own password. Yes, it's that simple.
Plugin configuration provides the capability to define which groups have the rights to log in as any user.
The plugin restricts members of the chosen groups from logging in as each other - effectively protecting them from the function of this plugin.
Define protected groups, where this plugin will refuse to operate for members of protected groups.
Super-Users are always protected
An annual support and update subscription is only: 12
A question for you. How easy would it be to also have the option within Joomla back end (when logged in as Superuser for example) to be able to click a link/button next to a user to then open a new front end window and log in as that user. This saves the issue of asking a user their email or username if they call in on the phone which is quite common, we can search their name in users and click 'log in'.
Would give this excellent plugin another useful feature.

I have this situation:
- all users register are in the backend
- some user received their credentials informations, but some no
- some users changed their passwords, but some no
I need to send an email (acymailing) wich contain username and password to all users
I will advise all users to change their passwords.
I think that if i create a usergroup under registered with some permissions of registered usergroup and use your plugin to allow this new usergroup.
I create just one user in this new usergroup with pass 123456
So my email will contain username (acymailing) and passs 123456
Some information llike this
You need to change your passaword. Use this passowrd 123456 if you did not changed your password.If changed use the actual password.
Ps. i will reset all last visited data in DB to grant that all is new user and need to change their password.
