With IP Login from Regular Labs (ex-NoNumber!) you can log into you Joomla frontend and/administrator side automatically by IP address.

You can simply set up your IP address and a secret URL key in your user profile in the administrator.

After installing IP Login, you will have below settings in every user profile. So to set up IP Login for your user, go to the User Manager and click on your user account.

enter image description here

With above example, you will be able to automatically log in on IP address 123.456.789.123 with URL key mxx8hrv4.

The URL key needs to be put in the url as a 'query' variable, like: http://www.yourdomain.com?mxx8hrv4

If the URL already contains a ?, you can prepend the key with an &, like:
http://www.yourdomain.com/administrator/index.php?option=com_content&mxx8hrv4

Security warning

Be aware that there is a small security risk. The risk is low, as the hacker will have to find out your IP address (and spoof it), know that you have set it up as auto-log-in IP address and somehow find out your secret URL key.

Initially it's not possible, because Joomla, com_users especially, checking security token.

You can create your custom plugins I believe, but there is no possibility by default.
