Ticket #1628 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Identity fails without message when cookies are disabled

When cookies are disabled in your browser, then Identity lets you log in, but you immediately loose your credentials again. That's confusing for users.
I suggest the following patch that does not let you log in unless cookies are enabled and gives the user a message about this problem in the login dialog.
Alternatively, one could issue flash() message when cookies are disabled. However, this can easily be overwritten by other flash() messages. For instance, the default project sets its own "The application is now running" flash() message so you would never see this error.
