Check your session cookies validity and informations

Table of Contents

Get a user's basic information from its session cookie

Phantombuster has made the choice to use session cookies in order to allow you to automate your workflows. These allow Phantombuster to take action on your behalf while not having to ask for your account's email or password.

But these can be difficult to manage at scale manually for agencies with tens of clients.

This automation will try logging into a social network with the session cookies you specified. If it's validit will return basic data about the current user: Name, profile URL, avatar URL, etc.
