Apology

February 23rd, 2020

Dear valued users,

Recently, and especially in the week ending February 22nd, we are experiencing an issues with the server performance. We would like to formally apologize for the inconvenience and stress caused.

The issues are originated from our web hosting provider. We are working with this provider for more than 10 years, and while the service provided by this host was ‘great’ to ‘sufficient’ for the most part, in the last year they took on a major upgrade which result in too many problems that was handled too slow.

We, at Sharetimetable.com, are concern to our service and to our users looking for ways to better handle these issues. Eventually we may be require to move to a new hosting provider. Moving to new a new host will require founds that we do not have now. Temporary solution is to use a different server on the same host, Please bookmark this URL: http://sharetimetable.bookika.com. Next time the main URL is not working try accessing our system using this URL.

We value your input: If you have anything to say, suggest, concern, please write us as a comment to this page or in our Contact Us form.

Kind regards,
Raz Peleg
Share Timetable.

Password-less login

July 2nd, 2017

In an effort to create a more secure environment and user friendly site we are introducing Password-less login.
At it base, ShareTimetable.com is not a secure site, the information in our site is not personal and the site is not protected by SSL encryption. This does introduce one risk: if user is using his commonly-use email and password pair. If the same pair is used in other personal sites, a ‘listener” can get the pair simply by listening to the user internet communication.

To avoid this risk a password-less login was developed. This is a simple two stage authentication:

  • (1) User will post his Username.
  • Site will response with a login code: 6 digit number.
  • (2) User will enter the number and login.

To avoid repeating the login with the same code or trying multiple codes there are some limitations:

  • Code has time limit of 30 minutes.
  • Only one code per user can exist at one time, if user ask for code twice, only the last is valid.
  • Other limitation that design to prevent unwanted logins.
