Experiences with email-based login
It is interesting to see that I am not the only one who has a problem with email logins. I find email logins make everything much more complicated than simple password-based authentication. I use a password manager both on the computer in the browser and on my smartphone and can easily have complex passwords filled in automatically.
I found it annoying to use myself:
- Go to arp242.goatcounter.com
- Enter my email.
- Go to FastMail.
- Wait 10 seconds to 5 minutes for the email to arrive.
- Click the link, opening a new logged-in goatcounter tab.
- Close the old goatcounter tab where I filled in my email and FastMail tab.
