Our jargon for the day is 'magic links', though as Doug Belshaw reports, they are not ready for prime time. This post is an introduction. "Just type in your email address, get a link emailed to you, click on it, and voilà: you're in. It's a frictionless, almost magical login process." Ah, but what if you read your email on a separate devive from your browser, as I do? Won't work. What if your email redirects the message to oblivion (increasingly common these days)? Won't work. More on magic links: from Okta, Beyond Identity, WorkOS, Ping, Hacker News, LoginRadius.
