My role


Background 1.5 can already support passwordless
sign in.

However, the users still need to go to their emails or SMSs messengers to check and input the one-time code. Also we want to push the boundaries for even safer and user friendly authentication methods.

  • What if the users can sign in to the account with their preferred method biometrics?
  • What if there's a sign in manager that works similarly to authenticator apps?

Competitor Research

Key patterns

  • Sign in and create account are separated in two sections - Why?
  • Overwhelming social media list - ?
  • Emails and mobile requires password and often users forget about their passwords

Design opportunities

  • Design for recovery. The backup and restore features are not fully developed or supported in most of the competitors' app. How might we design a better recovery path for the users?
  • Passwordless experience. Explore the possibilities to sign in to an account passwordlessly with the authenticator app.

Information architecture

Aim to keep the structure very simple

We mapped the must have features, then sorted those features under different groups 01 Start, 02 Restore, 03 Add account, 04 Accounts, 05 Sign in and 06 Settings.
