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:

  1. Go to arp242.goatcounter.com
  2. Enter my email.
  3. Go to FastMail.
  4. Wait 10 seconds to 5 minutes for the email to arrive.
  5. Click the link, opening a new logged-in goatcounter tab.
  6. Close the old goatcounter tab where I filled in my email and FastMail tab.
