A Problem with Passwords #wtfUX
What’s hot in UX this week:
Creating passwords can be a stressful experience. Go too famliar (CHILDNAME) and you lose effectiveness, go too obscure (admiralalonzoghostpenis420YOLO) and you’re likely to forget it.
As Edward Snowden recently told John Oliver, “For someone who has a common eight-character password, it can literally take less than a second for the computer to go through the possibilities and pull that password out.”
Snowden recommends concocting memorable non sequitir phrases like: “margaretthatcheris100%sexy.” Whatever your strategy, you want to make sure the password you enter — one generally obscured by black dots — is exactly what you intend it to be. This leads us to a frustrating bit of wtfUX sent our way.
With the launch of the new Apple TV today, it’s always worth taking a look at their documentation on how to design experiences and interfaces for the big screen.
We’ve all experienced the anxiety that comes with waiting not-so-patiently for the phone to ring, or email to arrive, to find out if you got an offer for your dream Design job. So many factors determine whether or not you get an offer to join the team.
If your customer gets an e-mail from your company, you want them to immediately recognize that it’s from your business, without even having to see your company name. By ensuring brand consistency, you ensure that you can be recognized, a thoroughly valid objective.
Trying to measure user experience as a general concept often leads to useless results with too many variables. Standardizing the user experience means looking at it as a more concrete idea.
From Uber to Vine, we’re starting to get a good sense of how mobile app trends are shaping up for this half of the decade.
Notifications are really important to price watching features. If the user doesn’t allow notifications for the app, they can’t receive our message that the price is at its expected low, completely undermining the power of the feature.
Pretty much any time we design something new, we start at the middle. Well, that might end up being a big design problem.
