I would like to allow my co-workers to share my account for a temporary amount of time (3 weeks).

I would like to do this so that they have access to and visibility into my Stack Overflow Careers recruiting activity.

If I could isolate that login to Stack Overflow Careers only, that would be ideal, but it is not necessary.

I see that I can go to logins > add login, but I don't see a way to add an arbitrary username and password.

What is the best way to temporarily share account access with others? (And, is this allowed for SO Careers purposes?)

    Creating a new OpenID and associating it with your account would be the way to go, but only if you trust your co-workers... – Cody Gray Apr 24 '12 at 18:19

Adding a login will work for adding an openID. If you'd like to add another email/password login to your account, create a separate account with those credentials and email a merge request to careers at stackoverflow dot com. This will give anyone logging in with those credential access to your full account, including your Careers profile (should you have one).

  • I did this (new OpenID from an independent provider) without the merge request, I didn't see the value in that (unless I can request an unmerge later). Anyway, it's worked out fine. Thanks! – SimplGy May 8 '12 at 14:36
