The following method is by most of the websites on the Internet where you sign up without using a username. (The e-mail is used to log-in)
Basically, when you want to register on a website (which identifies you with your e-mail) usually you have to input 2 or 3 information.
3. Confirm Password
And in most cases in this order too.
Now the problem here is which password should I enter?
Most people usually just write their e-mail’s password, because they believe this is needed, and this is confirmed by most of my non-techy friends too.
In my opinion this is a huge usability problem. Just the other day one of my friend didn’t wanted to sign-up on a website, because he doesn’t wanted to gave out his email’s password. (My friend doesn’t know anything about encryption and general password security)
Knowing this, I propose:
1. change the order of the fields
2. don’t use the e-mail as an identification. Use a username field instead. (like what we have on Drawar)
3. simply mention that not the e-mail’s password is required.
