With hacking, data security, and privacy as huge issues in the press, we discuss how we approach identity management on both products and across our teams.

Show Notes

  • We've started a new podcast! Check out This Old App and subscribe!
  • This Old App is more of a grab-bag of in-depth technical discussion, more details, more guests, less structure. (more fun?)
  • Firebase has an authentication feature built-in for folks using the service
  • The auth piece of an MVP product is something that should not be done half-assed
  • Professional authentication/authorization is something every startup should take seriously, especially at the beginning
  • Often auth systems are stuck in a bad place because nobody wants to make major changes to the user auth workflow
  • When you're an admin on so many services, you have a higher level of responsibility to be secure-minded with all of your credentials
