Identity is an extremely complex space to be in, both in terms of technicality and design. The limitations and biases in public understanding of identity really throws a spanner in the works, and means the work also includes an element of learning for a user. There's a fine line between making a product intuitive, and easy, and making it seem mysterious and ‘unsecure’. I paid close attention to the feedback from UX Researchers, as well as attending many interview and feedback sessions personally. Understanding how users interpreted these kinds of products and specific interactions really assisted us towards a solution that was simple, trustworthy and gently educational.
