Re: [ia-55] Enter & Re-enter Password when sign up

Hi Yingying,

My company does request a password/confirm password upon signup as part of the Drupal module we use. Though our developers have said we can automate the second password field on the back end (only requiring the user to type a password once), but as you mentioned, I believe doing it twice avoids user typos that could cause later logins to be frustrating.

Hi Guys,

I noticed a website called Readability asks users to enter password only once (try here: Most of websites we are using now ask us to type twice. How do you think about this? Is it easier for users?

I am curious about why people initially designed website with enter & re-enter password. Is it because of security, or just avoiding typos by users? I am sure a lot of people would type wrong password for the first time, I did this a few times.

What do you think?
