After using PayPal for years, this thought has only just came into my head. Why does PayPal display a screen, when logging in, that says:
Logging you in securely.
Please wait 5 seconds, and if the page does not redirect, please click here.
I understand that decryption and validation of the password can be slow, which it is suppose to be a slow process. For all of the logins which I use they are instantly redirects you as soon as you press the login button.
Is there a specific reason of showing this page to the customers? I believe it will cause slight confusion myself.
