I suggest you ...

Log in should default to username and password

I shouldn't have to click through 4+ things just to get logged in to Lifecake. The default should be username and password, ideally on the main page already. Non standard methods of logging in should require further clicking, not the other way around.

        This is the worst log in site I have ever used. I am SO frustrated with this.I have emailed my complaint and although I did get a reply ( thank you) I still after 5 months struggle with getting the photo up through log in. I have missed out seeing so many updates I just give up. My daughter in law set it up and I gets dozens and dozens of emails from Lifecake but cannot login through my Outlook, nor phone, nor this page I am on actually. I am logged in but where do i go to see the photos from here ? Your Link with the tap this space does NOT work for most people. Please simplify this website.

        My 88 year old parents try to follow their great grandchildren's pictures and are also frustrated
        by the cumbersome log in.

        While I am happy that my father at his age became computer savvy, this way of logging in is all backwards, causing him to ask for help.
        I have also been frustrated and use the mobile app instead of a desktop log in.

        100% agree - I have never seen a site that requires you to login through an email every time I want to login on my computer. If this app will truly be successful I shouldn't have to hesitate to login to show people pictures while at work knowing it will be too long of a process. We will be finding an alternative if this does not improve.

        I agree!!! I was invited some time ago by my nephew and his wife to follow the progress of my gt nephew via Lifecake, since they live on other side of the world. I don't have much time to log in and look at pics every time I get an alert, so tend to have a blitz from time to time and just look back through time-line at the really good pics, as there are sooooo many!! But is getting more and more difficult to sign in. MOST RECENTLY APP JUST DOESN'T SEEM TO BE WORKING CORRECTLY AS I ALWAYS, AUTOMATICALLY GET DIVERTED TO ADD A CHILD??? WITH NO CHANCE OF LOG IN AT BEGINNING AND NO APPARENT WAY OF GETTING BACK TO REGULAR LOG IN. AM CONTEMPLATING GIVING UP ON LIFECAKE AND ASKING MY NEPHEW JUST TO SEND ME THE ODD REALLY GOOD PIC VIA EMAIL.
