Project-GC uses the Geocaching Live API[1] for user authentication. With this you can use your account to login to this site.

You are not sending your login information to Project-GC but instead you allow Project-GC to fetch some of the information bound to your account from This data will be used in accordance with the API License Agreement. You can at any time you want, revoke Project-GC its rights to fetch your data by visiting Authorizations.

The authentication used by the Geocaching Live API is based on a standard called OAuth2. This is the same technology that is used by Facebook and Twitter to allow other sites/applications to access accounts. Read more about OAuth2 here, or check out the Wikipedia page for easier reading.
