Although most of the places on the internet allow users to login with their existing Google or Facebook account, there are still many places where this is not an option. In such cases, remembering passwords for multiple accounts is a difficult task. Personally, I never use a password storing application and believe many people don't use them as well. So in such cases often when logging in, when the user forgets the password, there are no hints displayed which could help them remember what that could be.
When I say hints, I dont mean personlised hints indirectly helping individuals, but I mean generalised hints to everyone.
- The password has at least 1 special character.
- The password is of minimum 8 characters
Wouldn't this be a good UX practice, avoiding users needing to reset their passwords to a certain extent?
