    Is there such program, script, or automator configuration that will do something of this nature:

    log you in to websites you specify using the credentials you specify every day, week, month, etc. without you having to do much.

    reason:

    i belong to some websites that will deactivate you if inactive for a certain period of time. so my hopes are to acquire a program that will allow me to enter in the website, and my credentials and a frequency preference and it will just do it for me.

    any thoughts?

    It seems like the "Always remember password" feature of every modern browser paired with sparing 30 seconds every 6 months (or whatever time period) to login to thsoe sites with account expiration periods would solve this problem for you quite handily.

    simply put:

    im looking for a application or script or java, whatever it may be to allow user to input a website(s) with credentials and how often you want the application to log you in to such websites.

    this is 1password in a nutshell, no?

    I highly recommend Lastpass as well. I started using it 2 months ago and it's been great so far.

    Lastpass is amazing for being free. You can use it on multiple machines and its easy to edit manually. I tried 1password and I still use Lastpass. I also use the web extension for Chrome and its super helpful.
