I have a question for Bulb and everyone else who might know. Why is the default sign in option to send an email with a clickable link instead of requesting a password? By habit I type in my email, hit enter, expect to type in my password only to find out an email has already been sent to me to sign in. Obviously not a major problem but aside from the practical aspect you also have to consider the environmental side of it. Emails (like most things) have a carbon footprint, caused by the servers transferring them and storing them for years. Now Bulb’s sign in email is only 43 kB so can’t cause more than a couple of grams of CO2 emissions according to these sources (Two Sides and Independent) but knowing the company’s green aspirations and failing to see the upside of this sign in method I wonder if we could simply keep both options but offer the password way first so we don’t keep creating emails needlessly.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
