It’s been about ten years, maybe more, since Amazon changed their login screen—something that’s become a regular part of our digital lives. But a new version seems to be showing up for users now. We are not sure how long the rollout will take before everyone has it.
You could call the new page streamlined. Or you could call it 33% simpler due the fact that it has one less option to worry about. Or you could even point out that its more vertical, card-based design is more appropriate for mobile screens, like phones and tablets, than the old, wilder version made for the PC era.
Today, “login” and “password” are part of the lexicon, of course. And Amazon has ~200 million customers, so maybe they can get by without asking every single visitor whether or not they have an Amazon.com account. Even still, we’ll miss you, old Amazon login screen, and the sometimes stupid memories we made together.
