How do I use authenticated feeds that require a username and password?

Feed Notifier versions 2.2 and up will automatically detect when a feed requires a username and password. You will be prompted to enter your login credentials when adding the feed.

If you need to change your password, you will have to delete and re-create the feed.  The username and password cannot be changed once the feed is added.

What new features are planned?

Here are some features that we hope to add to Feed Notifier in upcoming releases. Have an idea that’s not listed? Let us know.

  • OPML support – import/export feed information.
  • Quiet mode – instead of popping up new items, change the system tray icon to something that will let the user know new items are available.
  • Folder structure – to keep feeds better organized and to be able to enable/disable whole groups of feeds with one click.
  • Theme configuration – user configurable popup colors and fonts.
