I recommend adding a slide on how you are doing this for educating those of us who do not know. From a high level, I assume the logins are detected via cookies.

Edit: interesting! Its by checking if favicon images would be loaded.

Turns out I dont have any social accounts. Interestingly, http://webkay.robinlinus.com/ detects that Im logged into Flickr although I dont even have an account there.

Very nice, it got everything right in Chrome. But a little confused in Brave (said I had Reddit account). But very cool app.

Nice, it detected spotify and dropbox for me. Didn't recognize twitter or gmail.

    Yeah unfortunately I can’t detect twitter anymore.. I have to come up with something new to detect logged in users for it
