We’ve been a little quiet on development of STORM with lots of changes happening in the background ready for a raft of new changes happening soon. We’ll be updating up on these changes in the coming weeks. However, this week, we’ve launched a two page login. A few industry leaders have recently changed over to two page logins including Google and Offic365 and we’ve decided to follow suit for a number of reasons.
Firstly, we can improve the login process by checking the email address exists in our database before proceeding to the password stage. This allows STORM to confirm if the user is registered and completed the signup process before proceeding to the next step. If the user hasn’t registered the appropriate actions will be offered to the user to proceed with the login or signup. This will mean any users who login with the wrong email address will quickly identity the problem before moving onto the password stage which will speed up the login process.
Secondly, it allows us to offer a demo version of STORM with a more simplified sign up process. The demo version of STORM will be launching very shortly.
Finally, now that we’ve implemented the two step login, we’ll be implementing some additional functionality to improve the login process over the coming few weeks. We’ll keep you informed when this launches.
We realise that a two step login can be quite a change especially if you’re using a password manager. Therefore please do let us know your feedback or software conflicts this might create. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
