Tips on sign-in form

Users are not usually fond of filling forms. When they have bad experience with the login system of a website, they tend to avoid the latter afterwards. To keep users coming to your site again, some good practices to keep in mind:

  • Use federated login when possible
  • Avoid having confirm email for example
  • Recommend using password management when possible or at least hint chosing passwords without meaning and warn about password being pwned
  • Multi factor authentication
  • Avoid having user change password regularly. Studies show that it is not more robust
  • Gather data analytics to improve user experience (for example how many times the forgot password link has been clicked)
