account creation (setup): refine explaining text and wording
The account creation text currenty talks about things like "password to protect your account".
Refining the wording in the introductory texts (and in Ring generally) may improve the user understanding and also allow for better short descriptions, that convey better matching concepts.
- talk about locally created RingIDs, instead of ambiguous "accounts" (registerd at which Company?)
- omit the difference between RingIDs and device keys in the basic description.
This draft has been adapted from the below discussion of this issue:
Setup Wizard Refinement Draft 0) Setting up your Jami device Jami uses a randomly created Jami-ID on your device for secured, distributed (peer-to-peer) messaging, and direct communication with others. Your Jami-ID credentials are *only* created and stored on the local device, to protect your freedom and privacy! You may, however, transfer your Jami-ID to additional devices, and should maintain a backup. * Import existing Jami-ID (transfer-PIN or backup file) * Generate a new, random, Jami-ID (local config file) 1) Create new Jami-ID * Optionally, you may register a (nick) name in the Jami directory. It has to be unique and also allows others to connect with you. A nick name is easier to use and remember than the long string of random characters of the Jami-ID. (Recommended, but nicks can currently not be changed, reused nor deleted!) * Optionally, set a password to protect your Jami-ID credentials on the device, and in backups (they contain your decryption key). * (Also explain where daily backups are saved to disk) (recommended) 2) Edit your profile There should be info about the profile name. That it's independent from the nick name That it can be changed What kinds of characters are allowed Is it shown to other users? Is it specified separately for each device?
Probably applicable in all platform clients.
