How does the no-password login system work?


#1

The Open Collective platform works with a no-password system, we find that our users appreciate that they don’t have to remember another password.


It works like this:

When you try to log in, you type in your email, and we send you an email with a unique link that logs you into your OC account.

Once you click on the link, we store a JSON Web token in local storage that keeps you logged in for 30 days in that browser.

It works on all devices where you have email access.
