    Hello
    I have an imacros script which run with firefox browser
    I dont run that imacros script into vps due to fear of hacking or stealing of script at VPS.
    Is there a way to lock down or require authentication (username\password) to run the script.?
    Such that if incase it get stolen it would not run without verifing username\password.
    Is it possible. or any way?

    There is no way you can protect an imacros code. Its like handing over source code of a program and trying to protect the source code itself by adding code into itself. Thats not possible mate.

    If someone access your vps, your macros is their's too. So better secure the VPS. If you have a trust worthy provider, you wont really get hacked or so.

    Nope. It's a script that runs purely in the browser so if they have the source code they can do whatever they want with it. I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. Even if someone did break into ur VPS it's unlikely they would even know what an iMacros script is let alone make sense enough to understand what the hell it does without running it, if they even knew how to.

    Buy from a reputed provider, use a strong password and do not download any useless shits and you will safe because i can't think of a solution. Obfuscating the macro by creating a js macro may help but this will be tricky and the macro will still be visible when getting played. There may be a chance if you use EVAL and obfuscate all lines
