The UX is a little confusing if you haven't accepted the terms of the default identity server. #10636
Right now there's bug that means you don't see the option to change your identity server before accepting the default identity server's terms. For the purposes of this issue, I'm assuming that issue is fixed.
I think the experience is confusing if you haven't accepted the terms of the default IS, in a way that is problematically insensitive to exactly the audience most interested in the privacy developments.
If you haven't accepted the terms of the default IS (this will be most users after the privacy changes go live), the verb to choose not to use an identity server will be 'disconnect'. Disconnect unfortunately implies connection. Which makes it very unclear where data has been shared.
I think the UX issues can be solved by a slight change to the button text and perhaps microcopy. We could vary the button text/microcopy on the state of terms acceptance, or alternatively just find button text/microcopy that work noncontroversially in both cases.
To illustrate: on the left is what it will look like without further changes; on the right is a suggestion of possible copy change.
