Pattern #86: Temporary Sign In

Pattern Author: Jakub Linowski - Founder & Editor @ GoodUI.org - Inspired by Amazon.com

Experimental Pattern

Without any backing test results - for now at least.

Temporary Sign In
  1. Temporary Sign In Option Choice

    After providing a registered email or phone number for which a user is trying to sign in, they are shown two options. One of the options is to fully reset their existing password, and the other option is to receive a temporary sign in code.

  2. Temporary Code Field Choice

    After chosing the option to use a temporary code, the user receives the code (over phone or email) and may enter it into a verification field.

For each pattern, we measure three key data points derived from related tests:

REPEATABILITY - this is a measure of how often a given pattern has generated a positive or negative effect. The higher this number, the more likely the pattern will continue to repeat.

SHALLOW MEDIAN - this is a median effect measured with low intent actions such as initiating the first step of a lengthier process

DEEP MEDIAN - this is derived from the highest intent metrics that we have for a given test such as fully completed signups or sales.
