There are these services which I use once a week or less. Sometimes I use a variation of a ‘regular password’, but more often, I just plain forget my password. Well, apparently, I’m not the only one — there’s always the “reset my password”/”e-mail me my password” link, and so I can always just do that, read my mail (which I do remember the password for), and enjoy the service.
That sounds awkward, doesn’t it?
I wish services would support “e-mail me a token”, where they mail me a link with a token, which causes a cookie to be set on my computer and logs me in to the service automatically. The token would only be valid for a few minutes. Every time I came in, I would ask for a token, and then click that. For little used services, this would be wonderful.
