Members-only sites get master code

Internet Profiles Corporation today kicked off a service that should make it easier for users to get on Web sites that require them to fill out membership or registration forms.

Internet Profiles Corporation (I/Pro) today kicked off a service that should make it easier for users to get on Web sites that require them to fill out membership or registration forms.

The company's I/Code universal registration system lets users register all their demographic information once and once only at I/Pro's own Web site. Users are then issued a special code that will give them automatic access to any membership-based Web site that is participating in the I/Code service. This means that I/Code users are freed from the hassle of filling out multiple registration forms and having to remember multiple passwords, I/Pro officials said.

I/Pro said that as of today more than 20 Web sites are participating in the service, including Duracell, Pathfinder, Quote.Com, Sony, and Visa.

To promote the new service, I/Pro is holding a sweepstakes that gives users the chance to win prizes such as a $10,000 vacation anywhere in the world. Users can register for I/Code at its Web site or at any of the Web sites participating in the service.
