    I am thinking of using Xenforo forum user credentials as a form of authentication for an Android application. Are there any sort of login hooks? I do have access to database, but I do not know how the passwords are encrypted.

    Can you associate your forum account with your customer account and then I can move this thread to the relevant forum.

    I am an admin to my friend's forum. He bought the license but he doesn't do the backend stuff. If you want I could try to ask him to let me login through his account.

    Your friend can add up to 4 forum accounts to his customer account.
    This is specifically for instances such as this so site staff can access the customer forums :)

    Ah great. Thank you. I will let him know but i'll probably have to do it myself since he is quite noobish at these things, :p

    I've been looking through the authenticate class. I still don't understand how the "remember key" column in the database is generated from the password.
