"FN Connect" 1-Click Login API w/ TFA -- "verified accounts of <username>" section

SeiRruf 4 years ago updated by Digby (Community Manager) 3 years ago 2

Inspiration:
The more FurryNetwork (FN) develops, the more potential I see in it as a center outlet for furries, globally. Being able to interface everything, and create our own "Google" of things. Remembering passwords for each begins to be more of a hassle than not, unless you're using a password safe. But what other furry communities allowed you to log-in the same way you would log-in to other networks, at the click of a button?


Suggestion Details:

* FN could eventually have a "Login with FurryNetwork" (or link a FN account) API which other furry communities can implement into their existing websites. This would be secured to a level of protection making it safe to use, even if someone's FN login credentials were compromised by making use of Two Factor Authentication (TFA) either by phone number, or email, if set up by the user. EDIT: (found TFA already suggested here, but my suggestion goes a bit more into detail with verification and 1-click logins)


* FurryNetwork could provide the option for users to link/import details from their already owned furry/social accounts, and services owned and ran by Varka (e6, f-list, etc). Which would show up on their profile as "Verified accounts of <username>" (of course having the user log-in to these accounts through FN to verify them). This would further help eliminate impersonators, as the account holders could have all their official accounts verified and listed on what could soon be the worlds most popular Furry Network.


Summary:

I see FN as being a one-stop place for everything Furry. Offering ways of other networks to interact with FN could have a large positive impact on the network overall. I found another suggestion Here. "Verified Accounts" while searching this that may also aid in the whole "verified accounts of <username>" section. A selling point for FN where users can feel they can escape from those trying to impersonate them.


Importance:

This is a low-priority suggestion, which definitely can be implemented after launch. I feel the more FN reaches out to other networks, the more universal and accepted it will begin to feel.

This doesn't seem like it could be a possibility at the moment. This would need a large amount of reworking to the current site to implement, and it could take multiple years to negotiate this with other furry sites; in addition, they'd need to change coding on their end, and there's no guarantee other sites would want that. We also don't see a huge demand for something like this. If we do get to the point where this would be greatly beneficial to others, we could revisit this idea.

If this gets implemented, then implement 2-Step Verification
