Is HTTP Basic Auth a dark pattern?
@v0tti Why it should be?
@clerie Password Managers have a hard time, HTTPS has to be manually verified
@v0tti You can build your own login form for basic auth /o\
@clerie But most people don't
@v0tti But you can still try to build a workaround for this. Basic Auth don't cares from where the login comes. Grab some static HTML page, write some JS and point the URL in your password manager to your own page.
@clerie That's not the question. If I have to build my own tools around it to make it usable/secure, I would consider it a dark pattern if implemented in the "traditional" way.
