How to display better text message if someone's enter wrong E-mail id?



  • How can we display a better text message when a user enter wrong mail id on any mobile application he/she is using ?

    Would - "Ugh, You entered an incorrect mail, please check again and fill the text box" that be okay or is there any better way we can formulate the content?



  • "Urgh, you entered the wrong email" entirely depends on the audience and your brands tone of voice. Personally, it feels a bit of blame game and pointing the finger at the user, so not particularly encouraging. Don't feel you have to go for something humourous, error messages are designed to be informative and provide a resolution for the user.

    I'm assuming this is for a username and password, so how do you know the password is not incorrect therefore not authorising the user? Make sure your error message is suitable for all errors that are returned.
