Today we’ll discuss why is much better to ask the user to login with email/password instead of username/password. I’ll be short and punctual, i don’t like long blabbing articles the essence of which can be written in a line, so:
- The email address can’t be already registered (obviously), and if it is, you registered it and you can request a new password
- As a consequence of the above, the user can’t forget his email. You may be having what, 2-3 email addresses? You can’t forget them
- One less field on the register form. Everybody hates long forms
- You make the users use a real name, instead of s_87757 or pinkygirl1995 or other crap like that
If you think of something else, drop a line and i’ll add reasons.
