I read a blog post recently which, while specific to cybersecurity startups, really got me thinking about my own experiences.
So I’ve had 2 experiences that differ greatly!
- The company I worked with was SUPER focused on security. This is great if you’re dealing with very sensitive information, security is consideration number 1 on almost every feature. The result: a super secure product with a terrible UX.
- A different company I worked with had a UX designer. This was great from a UX perspective but this person really didn’t care about security. We had many debates about adding security features that they believed were not good for UX. I was always overruled.
So my question, in your experience is there the possibility to have good UX AND good security at the same time in an application?
