we have registration process and we really need for user to confirm their email, we are thinking about:

  1. asking the email and password to create their password
  2. Next screen, we show the user must confirm their email address to login, with verification code.

enter image description here

but i am concern, if user typo about their email should i just add wording" change email" like this? enter image description here

You could duplicate the field for email on the registration form (so that the user has to confirm the email), just like with passwords.



Last Name


Mail (confirm)


Password (confirm)


If that doesn't convince you, I could sugest adding the link to change the email next to the one that says resend...

You will receive an email with a confirmation code at:
[email protected]

Haven't reveived it yet? [resend] [change email]

Hope it helps ;D

    i read in here joshwayne.com/do-you-need-a-confirm-email-field that user tend to copy their email if form asked to confirm email address. I also think the second choice approach better communication to user : D

  • @vsn I used to nearly always copy-paste between the email and verification fields... until I did (mis)confirm an address with a typo. In that case, I just repeated the registration screen (and now try to manually re-enter the address unless I've copied it from a "known good" source).
