One of the things I dislike most about modern account creation for sites is when they do not use a password and username combination. I’m sitting here waiting for 20 minutes for a code from Synology to setup my new device. Their advice is to, send another code and wait for 15 minutes to see if it comes through. Oh check your spam and add the email to your contacts.

You know what wouldn’t have had me waiting for 20+ minutes to setup an account…a password field. I could have created it and stored it in 1Password and moved on.

Instead, I’ll have to stop setting this up because I’m out of time now. Guess I’ll try an email code later today or tomorrow since the one I was sent now will have expired by the time I get back to this.

Just use username/password please.
