I know this is not a big issue for many users, but every day I delete my cache and passwords from my browsers, so whenever I have to login into the I have to go to my email to get the activation link. It is more time consuming and doesn’t work with any password manager.
I am a person who is bit concerned about personal privacy and hence I don’t have my email app on my mobile. So the workaround to log-in through the mob browser is very tedious as I have to get my link from email(laptop) then use a link shortener to shorten it and us it in my mobile, which make me feel to no more login.
From security concern I do understand the email activation link is better but may be an option to password + email would be better.
