Smart Usability: Remember password, not username

Remember Passwords, Not Usernames

Remember Passwords, Not Usernames

“Remember Me” options typically remember both username and passwords. Some sites remember your username and ask you to enter the password every time you login.

I saw that Plesk control panel remembers your password and asks you to enter the username.

That’s a really smart trick. It’s much easier for me to remember my username than my password. Someone who gets access to the computer will have to know my username to get in. It’s a good enough protection I think!

Anyone else on this? What do you think? Should we remember passwords or usernames?

  1. Hmm, I think people are getting much smarter and its very easy to guess a username than guessing a password. This is definitely a different way of thinking, but don’t know how will people adapt to this?
