Unified login across CodePair and HackerRank for Work

As a HackerRank for Work user, if you start a CodePair interview while already logged in to your HackerRank for Work account, it is reasonable for you to expect that you don’t have to┬álog in a second time. Unfortunately that is not how it was. With a change that we are releasing today your HackerRank for Work and CodePair sessions share information so that you have to only log in once.

Here is what you would see if you visited a CodePair link while being logged in to your HackerRank for Work account from another browser tab.

CodePair sharing cookies

 

This login sharing works in the opposite direction too. If you start a CodePair session, and then visit you HackerRank for Work account you will not be prompted for a password.

Finally, it is important to remember that if you log out of your HRW session while a CodePair is going on, you will be logged out from both places. Don’t worry that does not mean your data will be lost, it only means you will have to log in again to access your pad.
