Re-use login credentials


Generally speaking, there are multiple perceived issues with password management in dApps. Another issue is the need to register and use multiple platforms and respective accounts, just to be able to make use of a single dApp. Futhermore users do not have the motivation to register, but at the same time they have a problem with storing and remembering login data for various applications.


Much like classic applications allow users to login with their Facebook account, it makes sense to allow users to reuse the login information they already use for other, related services. Shared accounts and a single login information are also useful for average and technically less savvy users. Re-use of login credentials saves time and enables users to start using the application sooner. Pattern can be used in web or mobile applications.
