Similar to your PC’s browser, your mobile browser bookmarks allow you to return to halloo.mobi without having to enter in the full URL.

For example, if your PIN is “2233”, you will be able to enter “aadd” in the sign-in form. This convenience makes it easier for you to sign-in, since many mobile devices require cumbersome methods to switch from alpha mode to numeric mode.
