Imagine the registration process where you send an activation email to the user. In many activation email I receive, I will get an activation hyperlink and an activation code by itself as well.
My question is whether or not there are any benefits to having a separate activation page where the user can go to enter the activation code manually instead of using a hyperlink in the email?
My preferred method would sending an activation link, and once it's opened in the browser getting redirected to the login page to complete the activation by logging in. Is there a reason to make this process more complicated, with a separate activation page?
