Comments on: Why the Confirm Password Field Must Die http://uxmovement.com/forms/why-the-confirm-password-field-must-die/ User Experience Movement Mon, 15 Jan 2018 03:40:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.18 By: agmhttp://uxmovement.com/forms/why-the-confirm-password-field-must-die/comment-page-1/#comment-91705 Sun, 24 Sep 2017 04:20:40 +0000 http://uxmovement.com/?p=8467#comment-91705 I just implemented this in a React app and its 1337% better. Thanks. I was actually Googling to find examples of password confirms because I am using email and password icons, and the password confirm was looking like it needed some kind of redundant icon, so I used your technique instead with the eyeball, and it came out deadly. I have lots of experience with UX as a QA engineer, and I totally agree the extra field is pointless if you can just expose the password. I’ve read many studies on how extra form fields increase bounce rates. No one likes a wall of text.

We’re pondering a timed show/hide where it would remain visible if clicked for 5 seconds, but I wonder if an aria-live could be used to inform the user that it is now hidden again. Then i just find myself asking Why, why now? So many fish and only 1 tiny pan. 😀

Many users distinguish between Login and Registration by the number of input boxes. It may be an anti-pattern but one that users have become very familiar with over the past two decades.

I never actually thought about that. I agree that it is really irritating to fill in so many fields at the time of sign up. After reading this article I really realized that there might be other alternative ways to get the same results you want.

It confirm that the majority of the users prefer to unmask the password. I saw also another interesting pattern. About one fourth of the users entered the complete password, and only unmasked it to review the inout before the click on the “Login” Button. Here is a short summary of the experiment:
