[Request] Sign in with username

Some people requested the possibility to sign into Gentlent Accounts via username and password, besides the option to use the email address and password.

Positive Impact

  • Logging into your account may be faster, as you’d only have to type in your possibly shorter username.

Negative Impact

  • It might increase the attack surface, as the username is public where the email may not be.

It’s not so hard to find someone’s E-Mail Adress!

I wouldn’t necessarily agree with this, as you can choose whatever email you like. For someone viewing your public profile (especially in the case of companies), your email address would be hidden.

Also, now that we’ve integrations with three authentication providers, sign in is even faster than before.
