Their is no confidential information since it is a public site. Don't like it don't use it. No need to let the world know you don't agree. Hell you can log into your own database and read PM's so I don't know why you are even using VBulletin....

The only confidential information are passwords, which are unobtainable.

Oh and my forum has over 200 active users through out the day so my forum didn't die within minutes.

Same here. I am the only one with access to log in to other user accounts, and my members know this as well. I assured them, that it would only be done if and when they had issues with their account, or we were testing out new features.

And like you said, if you don't like the product or think it is breaking some code of ethics, then no one is twisting anyone's arm to install it.

There are ways to read private data even without this product, if someone really want to do so.

This was not made for that but to test permissions, fix user account problems etc...

Thanks
My members know I can read their PM's and no one is worried about it. I also have it in the rules when you register so they know. It's not like we just ++++ around and read them for fun. If something were to ever happen we maintain our right to investigate as far as we need to. This is an excellent mod for trouble shooting, especially permission issues between usergroups.

I am using vB in a corporate environment where different permissions are set up for each user to create chinese walls across various projects and departments.

This tool allows the admin to quickly check the permissions are set up correctly.

THE TOOL IS A BLXXDY BRILLIANT. Thanks!

And I like the green bar "you are logged in as..." and "exit back out to admin". Well thought out tool.

In Set Admins Options in the first option add administrator account number ID but not option in the Account User (Administrator).
Why....?

On my vb 3.8 forum I had this addon installed as well, it's a great product. However, back then I could login to their account from their posts, by clicking on their name and in the dropdown menu select 'login to account'. Is there any way I could do this with this version as well?
