There’s nothing more frustrating than suffering the unintended consequences from the occasional “accidental click.” Limit your users frustration by interrupting flows with confirmation modals at crucial points in a users experience. Here are a few examples of when a confirmation modal seems appropriate:

“You’re about to…” is a great way to let your users stop and think about the upcoming repercussions of a certain action, such as launching an email campaign. Yea, it’s kinda a big deal… take a second to think about it.

Imagine accidentally deleting your entire account in one click. Help reduce these tragic mistakes by implementing “safety-net” modals on your landing page. Your users will thank you. 



3. Google AdWords: Ditching The Onboarding Process

If you think your onboarding process is worthwhile, make sure your users know what they’re missing if they choose to opt out. This confirmation modal emphasizes that the user will not longer receive step-by-step tooltips, should they choose, “Yes, exit.”
