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