I can see two places where such a message would be useful/important: On the install screen where you have the overview of your application: Your data is encrypted and sent directly to the other users you have selected. At no point is any of your data stored on our servers. On the "Help > About" dialog (should such a dialog exist in your application). ...

One option you may try is to add an "All Features" checkbox. When the checkbox is selected the sub-features are hidden. When the user deselects the checkbox, the sub-features are displayed, and the checkboxes on the feature level are hidden.

You could use an accordion control to allow expanding the category. However, I see a couple of problems here: If some options can be hidden, you need to handle partial selection. Otherwise, the rolled-up view would be misleading if only some of the categories were selected. Partial selection will likely be difficult to implement clearly (and it might be ...

EDIT: oops, I misunderstood the question. You don't want to 'disable' Caps Lock because how exactly would you communicate to users that this mode is unachievable? Some users may not know how to use Shift to temporarily enforce uppercase, and may not be able to type their password anymore. Besides, it seems unintuitive that a functionality of your keyboard ...

The core reason that you don't want to do this is because, as a general rule, any time you override the standard behavior of a users device, you open yourself up to a bad user experience . . . particularly if you do it without any kind of notification.

It's a good practice because any good UI should tell you of its current state; It's not so much of a warning, more of a notification. Accepting multiple variants of the password is really bad; you're essentially reducing the complexity of the password. By disabling caps lock you're taking control away from the user and the only reason seems to be just to ...

It depends on where you live. If you live in a hyper connected first world country where each customer has a quick access to his/her account information through mobile or web, then they don't need to risk knowing the balance through ATM screen (unless asked for). But if you live in a country where people don't have mobile phones connected with their bank ...

For what it's worth, ATMs in Australia do exactly this—my bank's ATMs give you three options at the end of your transaction: Print transaction record (receipt) Show balance on screen No balance required

I don't think so... Most of the people don't want their balance to be displayed on screen after the transaction as it create threat or embarassing situation for user if someone is looking from back on the screen. You can do by this way if you like There should be an option "Print Reciept" or "Show Balance on Screen". In case machine is running out of paper ...

I would like to see an quick account summary right after I enter my pin. "Welcome! You have X $s in your account. Would you like to a) withdraw b) deposit..." Plus real time calculations as I'm doing my transactions. And finally an option if I would like to have the full summary displayed, printed, emailed or sent via sms (the bank already has my email ...

Only if that's what they've asked for. From a usability perspective - There will be people who don't want the balance to be shown on screen. They could be stood their with their wife / girlfriend, and don't want them knowing just how much money they do / don't have. Also, there may be technical constraints too. To display the balance requires the ATM ...

Isn't this a security risk? Wouldn't you at least feel uncomfortable having your balance displayed on screen where people can look over your shoulder and see how "rich" you are? ATMs are already heavily targeted by scammers, this would just make things easier for them.

Tell me exactly how you prevent email address harvesting on your registration page? Now, please, tell your users if they've entered the wrong email address... Just with my university account I have 4 email address to handle (why? no clue). It can be a nightmare to reset a password under those conditions.
