Login pages will always be an integral component of the modern web. The way we interact with them may well change in the future as new technologies like Touch ID or facial recognition make their way to the web. But for now, designers are tasked with making the process as simple as possible with input fields. They also have to ensure the design is in-keeping with the rest of the site design language, and incorporates key elements of the brand in order to reassure the user when inputting sensitive data.
In this article, we are going to select ten of the most beautiful and easy-to-use login pages on the web today.
