Why is there no password sign-in?
There are multiple reasons why we decided against a dedicated password-based authentication flow:
- Mitigate risk for access to 3rd-party sites (user passwords not stored or managed by us)
- Reduce password fatigue from different username and password combinations
- Pre-validated email address reduces spam / fake accounts
- All providers support advanced security features like multi-factor authentication
Since the protection of our user's data is our highest priority we believe that the points above outweigh the traditional email / password login flow.
