6 Easy Steps to Login to my iOS App
This morning I downloaded the iOS app of a service I regularly use. Let’s recap the steps it took me to actually use it.
Login to my password manager because I have no idea what this app’s password is. Immediately am prompted for 2-factor authentication on the password manager.
Password manager uses its own dedicated authentication app. Open 2-factor authentication app to confirm code.
Go back to password manager and enter 2-factor auth code. Immediately prompted to confirm my identity using iOS fingerprint.
Why am I here again?
…oh that’s right, I need actually copy the password for my new iOS app.
Open the app I actually want to use. Paste the password. Login.
Immediately prompted for 2-factor auth, sent via email.
Check email, get 2-factor auth code.
Go back to the app I actually want to use. Paste password. Login.
