How Email Magic Links work

Email Magic Links authenticate users through a seamless login experience by sending a unique, one-time-use "magic” link to the user's email address. When the user clicks this magic link, they are authenticated and granted access to the application, eliminating the need for remembering complex passwords and enhancing the user experience.
The mechanism behind magic links is straightforward yet secure. When a user enters their email address to log in or sign up, the application generates a magic link containing an embedded token. This magic link is then sent to the user's email inbox, ensuring that only the owner of the email account can gain access by clicking the magic link.
Using magic links as an authentication method significantly increases account security. Since the magic link is a one-time token that expires after use, it protects against password-based attacks and unauthorized access, making it a highly secure authentication method.
Stych offers both a highly customizable API integration and a more low-lift SDK to suit your needs.
