    Yes they do this every time.

    I have had it and started reporting the login emails as spam. Hopefully with enough reports these practices will stop.

    It doesn't even give you an option to login with your credentials, just emails you a password regardless, so setting anything up is just a joke, none of it matters. Entering your username sends you an email.

    You can just spam anyone you like, just guess their address from their forum username and just help yourself to the top notch security of people who don't understand what a password is for.

    Now I only have one auth factor, my email, instead of 2, email+password. 

    The reason that passwords exist, Withings, is so that in case someone plays with my phone while I am away or my work PC doesn't get access to sensitive personal medical data.

    It's not even hidden, it just forces a password in plain text. 

    And yes, aside from the bad security practice, it's f**** annoying. Combined with the periodic logout this is really getting annoying. And double combined with the fact that password managers don't work because it doesn't show user+pass fields.

     

    Why have you EXPLICITLY denied users from using what is the best security option they have - a well defended password manager?
