In the next few days the Internet Identity team will propose a new release of the Internet Identity dapp. The most notable change will be a new device registration flow. This feature will get rid of the device registration link and replace it with a convenient 6 digit verification code.
Here is a short recording of the new flow in action:
Left is the new device, right is the existing device.
The new device registration flow has two main advantages:
- It is more convenient, especially if your existing device does not have the ability to read QR codes. We have also improved the instructions on how to add devices in the interface, regardless of which device you choose to start the flow on.
- It is more secure. By verifying the new device using a 6 digit code you can easily just enter it from memory on the existing device instead of having to send a link over a potentially insecure channel.
We will update this thread once the new version is deployed. Please feel free to ask questions or provide feedback.
