UI design is a little haphazard, long email overhanging boundaries, hamburger menus in the middle of the top nav. These small details build trust especially important for authentication.

Pros:

Nice implementation of email based authentication

Cons:

Lots of opportunity for polish improvements. Details matter for trust.

Maker
Good feedback, scaling product improvement as quickly as user growth!

long email overhanging boundaries - FIXED, was annoying the crap out of me too :) Hamburger menu is actually meant to be there, does left-align on mobile.
I like the idea and the execution, but would love more info on the security and tech behind it. an aside: is it built on Laravel?
Maker
@danmatthews what we are doing is scaling authentication, it doesn't make sense that we continually re-login everywhere and duplicate authentication over & over. So Fast authenticates a user, using existing and accepted industry security, then provides access to that authenticated token to multiple services/websites. Built with PHP (Not Laravel) / GoLang / Node
@domm Thanks for the reply, i really like it, gonna add it to a few apps i use - one of which is used daily by university students who just can't seem to ever remember their password. Are you planning to charge for it in the future? I'll probably stick it on https://endear.app when we launch too, i like the idea.
Maker
@danmatthews Fantastic, looking forward to having you onboard - let me know as you launch them domm@fast.co. This product is our free product, we have a v2 paid product already in beta which is the next gen 'easier' version of this!
@fast @domm fantastic, i will, thanks.
@domm Hello domm, Nice product! I love your product. I want to join the v2 product is already in beta. It would be appreciate let me know how to join. Thanks!
This is a very big idea that can remove a real pain point for both consumers and brands. I don’t want to give all my data to Google and Facebook. Seems like a slick experience, hope lots of sites adopt this.
Maker
@p_a_chan Absolutely, profile information is not necessary to scale authentication. We don't need to own, and don't want to own your users identity!

A cool idea and I'll be experimenting to integrate it with one of my projects.

Pros:

Makes login much easier

Cons:

Docs, and no apparent way to customize the button (language etc)

Maker
Yes, we tighly control the button so users get a consisten experience. The button actually automatically loads in 18 languages already (based on viewers browser language) with plans to support a lot more in the future.
Is it not possible to change the look of it through CSS?
Awesome! Any plans for a WooCommerce Add-on? Also I suggest maybe allowing to customize the button look and feel to match the website.
Maker
@amjad_ali4 absolutely planning on support for easy install on WooCommerce. Button customisation a deeper discussion as it’s more important to have common branding for users to understand they can easily login at a glance!
