    Hello there,
    Giving that the password inserted in the configuration is used in the URL via which the command is sent (i.e. from Chrome to the the phone), how secure should AutoRemote be considered?
    I'm mostly worrying about people sniffing the wireless traffic and intercepting commands.
    Thanks!

    The Chrome extension doesn't send the password in the URL. It sends it in the POST content.
    Since the connection to the server is done through https network sniffers should be able to intercept it. :)

    So the only insecure method would be the bookmark way, right?
