Thank you. Unfortunately, someone has to do it. I'm certainly not recommending every software developer to go out there and implement their own authentication system.

And at the very least, software developers should know how to do it properly / understand how it works and should be, even if they don't implement it themselves.

While people keep suggesting to go use an existing service to solve their authentication problems, what if the developers maintaining the existing services don't implement things correctly?

And using existing services is not always ideal.

Everyone makes mistakes, even the experts.
