All Things Auth

Protecting access to an account is a two player game. On one hand, service providers need to use the right tools and techniques. On the other hand, end-users need to have a certain level of awareness about those tools, proper security hygiene, and red flags to look out for. This project aims to help both sides to improve security overall.
Goal:Improve security through education, thoughtful UX, and proper technical implementation.

Effective security can be found at the intersection of UX and technical best practices.

The aim of this blog series is to help both service providers and end-users to provide better security features through some thoughtful UX, knowledge and best practices.
