    Mac OSX Testing Feedback

    The first thing to to make sure you got the file. If you enter ls in the Terminal window from the Downloads directory, do you see a file called SQRLPlatformAwareInstaller_osx.dms in the listing? If not, you'll need to go back to https://github.com/sqrldev/SQRLDotNetClient/releases, click...

    Mac OSX Testing Feedback

    Managed to download and install app by following the GitHub directions. LittleSnitch didn't complain too badly, and I never saw the security warnings mentioned (possibly because I'm using Mojave, possibly because the installation log said I had a prior version of SQRL in /Applications). Anyhow...

    Managed to get SQRL Client into a Confused State

    Ah, I didn't know what "stale nuts" was. :LOL: Admittedly, the QA Engineer in me was trying to induce an error by deliberately generating a series of problems (to perturb the initial clean state) and then attempt a successful attempt (to ensure that prior failures didn't impact a successful...

    Deleting identities is too easy

    And if you're traveling over seas, accidentally delete it without confirmation, and your recovery information is sitting in a safe location back home...? I think a simple "You are about to delete this identify. Are you sure?" is a reasonable bar to have to jump through. Ideally, I'd like to...

    Masking FaceID and the Advanced Toggle

    My point in mentioning the above was that I hit a case where the SQRL client gave me confirmation that I was logged in (presumably, it had just gotten confirmation from the server) -- but the forum didn't log me in. Does this happen often? I'd rather the SQRL Client tell me something went...

    FaceID is cool... but....

    Wanted to point folks to the resource "Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Phone Numbers," and while this discussion thread isn't about phone numbers, and the resource is far more comprehensive than just phones themselves. True, while I think Apple and Google would like to treat a phone as a...

    FaceID is cool... but....

    My vote would be not to remove it, but allow them in some advanced mode. The normal use case is that an end user is going to have one identity, and that's that. However, there are cases where you do want multiple identities. The first is when you're developing a system with SQRL in mind, you...

    Managed to get SQRL Client into a Confused State

    So, with FaceID active, but my hand covering up the front camera so FaceID fails, I tried scanning the QR Code. And letting it fail. And then I pressed the fingerprint symbol (which caused another face id attempt), and another failure resulted. I did this 3-4 times in a row, not changing the...

    Masking FaceID and the Advanced Toggle

    So, this time when using Jeff's SQRL client to login, I covered up the front facing camera. This caused the SQRL client it fail recognition, let me cancel the face id, and get to the advance button (which I toggled on). Then I went to enter in the password ...the moment I selected the password...

    FaceID is cool... but....

    Ok, just played around logging out and in a few times. Wow, it's getting to be like magic. This time Jeff's client asked me if I wanted to use Face ID. I said yes, and -poof- I was just on. This is exactly the kind of experience I think that will make SQRL catch on. There may be a GUI issue...

    Thoughts, Experiments, and Glitches

    So, in many ways I feel I went about some of this backwards, so I may have some edge cases here. I'm a Mac user, with an iPhone -- but while I was waiting for the TestFlight invitation, I became impatient. I signed up for an account on this forum and looked around. Then I installed Steve's...
