Auth on the web: better experiences

Phil Nash Developer Evangelist Twilio

It's a common practice to verify a phone number or implement two factor authentication by sending a one time password over SMS. We can all agree that it's a pretty terrible user experience though.

This process may increase security, but the friction can decrease conversion and the user experience in general. Android and iOS have APIs to combat this, so why not the web? In this talk we'll take a look at autocomplete and the WebOTP API to see how the web platform can help us build secure flows and a better experience all round.

Phil Nash

Phil is a developer evangelist for Twilio living in Melbourne, Australia. He loves working with Ruby or JavaScript to build web applications and tools to help developers. He once helped build a website that captured everyone's favourite sandwich fillings. He has too many GitHub repositories.

Away from the keyboard, Phil listens to ska punk, hangs out with his miniature dachshund (also called Ruby), and is on a mission to discover the world's best beers.
