Passkeys are a new type of digital credentials that follow the FIDO and WebAuthn standards. By supporting passkeys on your apps, your users can sign up or log in without having to memorize and enter complex passwords that are vulnerable to different attacks.
Passkeys eliminate any risks associated with passwords, including phishing, credential leaks, etc., by completely replacing passwords. Passkeys alone are much more secure than passwords and multi-factor authentication combined.
During the signup process, users only need to provide an username to create a new account. Afterwards, they can get authenticated with a biometric sensor (such as fingerprint or facial recognition), PIN, or even pattern. This significantly reduces friction in the signup and login processes, helping your business increase app conversion rate.
With passkeys, your users can easily log into websites or apps on different devices without having to re-enroll every device on every account. Moreover, users can also log in across different platforms by scanning the displayed QR code with the registered device.
Let Authgear take care of all the coding and APIs. After integrating your apps with Authgear, all you have to do is click on “Login with Passkeys” to enable passkeys as a primary authenticator for your users.
Our pre-built user setting page allows users to gain more control over their personal data and authentication. Existing users can add passkeys in the setting page to simplify their login process in the future.
