Forcing realtors and clients to manage yet another password to get reports is clunky. I do understand and support secure and restricted access to my reports for my clients and their agents.
I propose that HomeGauge implement OAUTH and do away with passwords. Users could log in using Facebook, Twitter, Google, Microsoft Accounts, and several others. OAUTH does not require the user give their password, only clicking the login with Facebook (or whatever) to get their reports.
OAUTH is really easy to implement and would also be a great way for inspectors and others to log into the HomeGauge website for all management functions.
OAUTH is more secure because users do not need to enter a password and HG doesn’t need to implement methods to keep passwords secure from hackers because HG doesn’t EVER have a users password.
