TO WHOM IT MAY INTEREST
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I noticed that when apple.com music app is launched it prompts for APPLE ID to login before customer gets access to it and waits for a input response as shown below on screen shot.
For clarity purpose it should clearly ask for email address which is more generic or login user id. This is just a consumer level user login credentials (some times referred to as login ID but not a staff ID absolutely not).
Otherwise (if not clarified) it may be taken as like staff ID which is very misleading, app users / internet users are customers but not staff.
Normally company email ID would show (most likely) company name as domain name, such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or perhaps firstname.lastname@example.org etc. Or any other company name.
same suggestion as above to IBM.
A (customer) loyalty points program in Canada PC Optimum uses the term PC id but they correctly prompt for email address. In my opinion it is inappropriate and very misleading NOT to use correct terminology for web logins.
My email address is not owned by IBM business neither by APPLE business or any other person or entity or organization because it is based on my own domain name.
My email address based on my own domain email@example.com is my personal asset, which I use to enroll on these websites to gain certain access and generate login ID with password. To consider my login ID as apple ID or IBMid is absolutely wrong and may have legal implications due to wrong wordings. I use my same email address of my own domain to login on several websites so my email address is not an ID from apple or PC Optimum or IBM or microsoft (absolutely not) etc., my email address is an ID from my own domain which is m0168.org
I find misleading prompts on this screenshot to create an IBMid.
