Be cute and helpful, but don’t be sneaky in your design.

Sneaky makes me wonder what you are doing with my information!
Screen displayed after allowing access to my Google account in a signup. Side note, I think the aspect ratio is off a bit.

This is an example of trying to be cute and helpful but actually causes me wonder if I made a poor choice to trust the application. Acquiring my photo is helpful and most sites do this after registration, but it isn’t sneaky.

Thank you for reading this short post. 🙂
