I am developing an iPhone/Android game app. Currently users must register USERNAME (3 chars min, letters only) + PASSWORD (8 chars min, ascii only) before allowed into the game.
Testing shows some users fumble with this, especially the password, and we are afraid we will lose users because of this.
I'd like to hear elegant ideas from app developers of creating the simplest possible registration process that even 300 grannies will pass.
The game server data contains little "sensitive" information as such, so there's not much to gain from hacking an account.
The following methods are not applicable:
- Social media login
- Auto-generating passwords
