Users who sign up for your site are giving you their personal information. If you misuse their personal information, you could abuse their trust. Most users today are more wary than ever about who handles their personal information. In a cyber world full of hackers and spammers, who can blame them? 1. Gerry Gaffney: Repeating email addresses. A few days ago James Hunter and I were talking about why forms often require the user to repeat their email address.
I've always found it irritating, although I'll happily concede that for people who don't spend an inordinate amount of time filling in online forms, it's at most a petty annoyance. There are two reasons for requesting the repetition: The email address is a key piece of information, without which it may not be possible to complete the transaction (such as a registration process)The email address may be a relatively complex string, and a high degree of precision is required for it to be used successfully.
However, these apply equally to a credit card number or card holder name (for example), even though I can't recall a form asking me to repeat those fields. In fact I have mistyped my credit card number on occasion, but the resulting error, or non-confirmation of the transaction, has alerted me to the fact. Email Entry in Web Forms. Many online transactions (such as registration or checkout) rely on email communication to verify user identity and intent or to establish ongoing customer dialog.
So it's no wonder companies and organizations care a lot about valid email addresses in Web forms. Get the wrong email address and potential customers can't be confirmed or contacted. The most common cause of unintentional email input errors is misspelling. Death to email address re-entry. I hate it when forms like this Oxfam donation form ask me to re-enter or confirm my email address: Oxfam donation form - email address re-entry fields I suspected I wasn’t alone so I tweeted to find out what others do when presented with this situation and I have to say I was overwhelmed with the number of responses I received.
It seems most people (well I should say most of my online web savvy friends) hate it as well and that they usually copy and paste the email address from the first field into the second. Ctrl A, Ctrl C, Tab, Ctrl V is less keyboard presses than typing an email address and therefore tends to be the preferred approach. To me the whole idea of re-entering your email address feels like a heavy handed, ill thought out trend that creates more work for the user, doesn’t solve the problem it attempts to, goes against the websites business goals and causes untold pain and wasted time for many *slight exaggeration there perhaps*.
Why the Confirm Password Field Must Die. By anthony on 08/25/15 at 9:32 am Sign up forms are one of the trickiest web pages to design.
Including and excluding certain form elements affects the conversion rate. The designer’s job is to figure out which elements they should include or exclude. Confirm Password Fields Lower Conversion Rate Many think the confirm password field is necessary to include when creating a password. While the confirm password field seems sensible, including it can lower your conversion rate. Five UX Antipatterns To Avoid When Designing Log-in & Registration Areas. Registration and log-in areas have been a common feature on the web since – well – since forever really. With this in mind, it’s amazing how many top name sites deliver frustrating registration and log-in experiences that not only annoy their users, but also impact their conversion rates and chip away at their profitability.
More and more sites use people’s e-mail address as their “username” too when requiring authentication. This makes a lot of sense: e-mails are unique, you often need it anyways, people have an easier time remembering their e-mail than an arbitrary username, etc. However, on most of those sign-up forms, I’ve noticed a very peculiar tendency – to the point where it is almost a standard – people are asked to confirm their password but not their e-mail address. To this day this still baffles me – surely getting the e-mail correct is more important than getting the password correct.
After all, people can always use the “Forgot password?” 14 Steps to Building Sign-up Forms That Convert. Growing your mailing list and generating leads should be one of your focus points of your marketing efforts. If Groupon didn’t have over 115 million or Appsumo 500 000 email subscribers, they wouldn’t have a business.
