The death of Confirm Password field?



Each time you spend time on social media there are high chances you come across a blog or a website or an app craving for your email to bombard you later with incessant mails. Most of these mailers you end up unsubscribing but some are actually important. Especially the ones that hold your account information. The ones which make you remember that one username you signed up with or the password you entered. It’s only human to forget them with almost hundreds of them around.

A major change in user experience these days while signing up is the extinction of confirm password field. With WordPress removing the confirm password field completely, it is soon becoming a trend in modern web design. The hassle of retyping the entire password is coming to an end with a small icon which allows user to see what password they are storing and also for hiding it for security reasons.

This makes it easier and faster for the users to make a quick sign up. Starting with WordPress now, more web applications are coming up with the same experience for their users. This soon can make the confirm password field a history. However, the debate is still going on with few people opposing it. And that is how design is; to each its own.
