So, if someone cancels out of handing over their contact details and signing up to your site/app, you want them to then hand over their contact details in the form of feedback instead? Yeah, I don't think that's going to go down too well with users. And in any case, if you do collect feedback how can you be sure it's accurate? If everyone ticks the ...

I agree: Stop making people confirm passwords, especially from Mobile. Second, yes, display in Plaintext. Some good reading on password security and masking: http://www.nngroup.com/articles/stop-password-masking/ It's time to show most passwords in clear text as users type them. Providing feedback and visualizing the system's status have always ...

The most user friendly and secure option is this: Whenever someone logs in or signs up to the company network their email is cross-checked against a whitelist of actual employees with legitimate access to the network. If you allow sign up via email, there needs to be such a list already against which to cross-check. The same needs to happen on login, not ...

Yes you should give user control over the app, always! It is one of the points you check for in heuristic evaluation. I use ISO 9241-110 Ergomics standard for interactive dialog and controlability is one dedicated chapter of it. What happens, if one enters a wrong, but valid working email? How can I correct it, if I recognise the error? A Sidenote: Why did ...

If it's just work emails you could always remove the need for users to enter the domain, a bit like the sign in for Slack. Further to your question I don't think there's any harm in allowing users to go back and edit the email field.

As you already know what SAML is, I'm not going to go into specifics of that and simply consider it a system for federated sign-ups / log-ins. What you've shows seems to be a simple option as to whether the application should use a federated sign-on or not. Some organisations prefer to have all the login and security information for a user stored locally, ...

The risk of removing the sign up is potential user hesitation/confusion. If users only see "Sign in" -- they might think, "But I never created an account! Where do I sign up?!" That said, I think it would be really interesting to do think-aloud usability testing and see how many people actually have an issue with only seeing a "sign in". My gut feeling is ...

When you sign up with facebook, you're essentially just creating a profile on the local site (Airbnb in this case) using data from your facebook profile. So something like name, avatar, and location. When you sign in with facebook you're authenticating yourself using facebook. Although the two are related, they are essentially different actions, and so in ...
