Use your glance or fingerprint using Touch ID or Face ID for easy and secure access.
Improve your authentication security; you do not need a password.
When you enable Passwordless WP on your site, you can log in with a simple action.
The Web Authentication API (also known as WebAuthn) is a specification written by the W3C and FIDO, with the participation of Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, Yubico, and others. The API allows servers to register and authenticate users using public-key cryptography instead of a password.
Safe facial or fingerprint data
The plugin recieves data which is provided by the device, your deivce tells the plugin if your person was recognized or not. It does not store your data, only token will be stored in WordPress without the ability to use it. It’s useless data without your physical access to the device.
Focus on User Experience
We follow the standard WordPress UX login page together with common-used elements to make using comfortable with a minimal footprint. Login and attach your device and passwordless login will available for the next login.
FIDO 2 + WebAuthn
WebAuthn was officially recognized as a W3C web standard in March 2019. Web Authentication is a new standard enabling the creation and use of strong, attested, scoped, public key-based credentials by web applications, for the purpose of strongly authenticating users using hardware authenticators.
The web standard was created from the outset with a “privacy by design” approach and are a strong fit for GDPR compliance. Crucially, the plugin delivers authentication with no third-party involvement or tracking between accounts. And when it comes to biometrics, FIDO and WebAuthn standards prevent this information from being stored and matched in servers – it never leaves the user’s device do not allow for any biometric data to be captured.
