Which passwordless options are right for me?

While we’ve written a guide on how to choose the right passwordless solutions for your business, the TL;DR comes down to three factors:
  • What kind of data does your product handle?
    The more sensitive data your product handles, the more strongly we recommend robust MFA passwordless solutions that verify the user’s identity and/or device ownership in a few different ways.
  • What kind of device do your users prefer?
    Conversion rates vary across desktop and mobile. For example, SMS one-time passcodes work well for mobile users, but add friction for desktop users. Whatever your users do, you want to pick the solutions that reduce friction from the UX.
  • What's your current reset password flow, if any?
    The majority of reset password flows are in fact passwordless: they just require a user to demonstrate ownership of an email address or phone number. This makes them good barometers for what security and UX experience your IT team and customers already find palettable.

Does Stytch have the latest and greatest - Passkeys?

Yes! While we definitely think passkeys live up to the hype, there are still some bumps to iron out before we feel they’re ready for prime time. For those eager about this kind of technology, we recommend WebAuthn as a good starting point.

I keep hearing people talk about “zero trust” solutions. Is that the same as passwordless?

They’re not the same, but they are related.
Generally, “zero trust” is used to refer to a shift in how we think about and enforce cybersecurity. Instead of trusting anyone within a certain network (often referred to as a “castle and moat” approach), zero trust never trusts anyone, and verifies everyone, even if they are already on a given network. Different actions, users, and devices are all verified regularly and repeatedly in order to make sure users are who they say there.
Passwordless solutions support a zero trust solution because they offer more secure factors for verifying someone’s identity, independent of whether or not someone has somehow gained access to certain resources already.
