The patent filed by Bank of America Corp. describes an authentication system that automatically authenticates a user at a second website after being authenticated at a first website. The system involves a validation engine on the first website to validate user login credentials, a web beacon triggered by the second website to scan accessed websites for login pages, and a password generation application that authenticates the user to the second website if the URL is included in a permission ledger. The method includes steps for inputting usernames and passwords, deactivating the web beacon upon user logout, and utilizing OCR and image recognition applications to identify login pages.

The system also includes a cloud-based server supporting the first website, options for user interaction to trigger the web beacon, and storage of usernames and passwords for authentication.
