We have a password entry for our login and registration pages. As the user types his password on the registration page, he will see something similar to the following:
Note: Our password entry does not have the force text.
My question is, does having the same password entry on the login and registration pages have a negative impact on the user experience? I suppose there is a good reason why other websites do not, but I will list the pros and cons as I see it.
- Immediate validation prior to the request
- Knowing the requirements can help the user remember his password.
- Additional clutter on the login screen
- Password requirements may change after registration
