Secure Connect is the best way for agencies to connect multiple Reddit accounts to Postpone.

With Secure Connect, your clients add their own Reddit accounts to your Postpone account. This has a number of benefits:

  1. Your other Reddit accounts are protected, since clients will log into Reddit with their IP address and browser, ensuring Reddit can’t link your accounts together.
  2. Your Postpone account security is improved, since clients will not have access to your Postpone account.
  3. Client privacy is improved, since clients don’t need to share their personal Reddit account credentials.

The Secure Connect flow is simple:

  1. Create a Secure Connect link under Settings -> Connected Accounts in Postpone.
  2. Send the link to your client.
  3. Your client clicks the link and logs into their Reddit account.
  4. The Reddit account is added to your Postpone account.

At no step in the process can the client access your Postpone account. 

Detailed Instructions

Secure Connect requires a confirmed email address and password in Postpone to use, so be sure to set those before proceeding.

Generate a Secure Connect link

  1. Navigate to Settings -> Connected Accounts in Postpone.
  2. Click the Connect a Reddit Account button.
  3. Click Create a Secure Connect Link.
  4. Copy the link that Postpone generated.
  5. Send the link to your client.

Client Adds their Account

  1. Your client clicks on the Secure Connect link you provided.
  2. They’re taken to the Secure Connect landing page.
    1. This page provides information about connecting their account. It displays the name and email you’ve configured in Postpone.
  3. The client clicks Connect with Reddit.
  4. They’re taken to Reddit.com to log in with their Reddit account and allow access to Postpone.
  5. They’re redirected back to the Postpone success landing page.

Managing Access

Head back to Settings -> Connect Accounts to confirm the client has successfully added their Reddit account to Postpone. Once there, you can now schedule Reddit posts, send DMs, or reply to comments from the account using Postpone.

By default, the account cannot be used to log into Postpone. This can be changed at any time by toggling Allow Login with u/Account.

Revoking Secure Connect Links

Once Secure Connect links are created they can be used by anyone to add a Reddit account to your Postpone account. These links expire after 30 days.

If you’d like to revoke Secure Connect links you’ve sent to clients then you can do so from Settings -> Connected Accounts.
