Unfortunately, there is not. The SQRL login process is a conversation between the site and the SQRL client and requires the site to respond correctly.

I set it up for my wordpress site but I have found no other place to use it I know SQRL is great but its not as handy as I thought it would be since it never really caught on

Is there any other places to use it
 
@helix23011,

Dave is correct. SQRL requires a two way conversation between a SQRL client running on your PC and a SQRL server implementation running on a websites server. Websites like Amazon, et al, will not touch SQRL without an RFC specification for SQRL, which does not exist.

Steve has his SQRL server implementation running on both this SQRL website and the GRC Forums website, both of which Steve controls. These two websites demonstrate the value of SQRL.

110% agree with you I use it on all my Wordpress sites I wish there was a way to login to windows or Mac using sqrl and your phone
 
Very interested in this after watching one of the videos where Steve presented this. With many people these days succumbing to dementia, I have a hard time with my parents continually using the same passwords for everything they do. Cannot expect them to use a different password for each site or bank account they login to.

Is there work going towards getting an RFC Specification?

In the meantime it might be useful to have a SQRL webpage that lists say the top 20 organisations that use SQRL with the hope that Microsoft and Apple and hopefully some of the bigger banks join the list at some point in the future.

PS. Loved the way SQRL Went from "Secure QRcode Login" to "Secure Quick Reliable Login" and that worked out. As a sailor one of the anchors is known as a CQR Anchor which I always think of as "Secure Anchor"... in a similar vane I can see SQRL resound as "Secure Login" or just Squirrel.
