The unphishable authentication factor

Based on public-key cryptography, WebAuthn’s use of hardware security modules or biometrics for passwordless authentication provides unparalleled security.

How it works

Meet WebAuthn, aka Web Authentication

WebAuthn allows web applications on supported browsers to authenticate users on mobile and desktop apps via two low-friction options:

Method 01

Built-in device biometrics: Touch & FaceID

Use our API to verify possession of your user’s original device and biometric proof in their facial ID or fingerprint. It’s secure, and super easy.

Method 02

Cross-platform hardware keys

Use our API to verify your users with specialized hardware keys (such as YubiKey) and let users move from one device to another — while retaining your auth method.
