Create simple yet secure web experiences
Use WebAuthn to allow desktop and mobile browsers to verify users with built-in device biometrics, as well as hardware keys like YubiKey.
Cut friction for your users
By integrating WebAuthn into your app, you can create a seamless experience to authenticate your users with a registered device or hardware key.
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:
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.
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.
MFA & 2FA made easy
WebAuthn creates a secure and flexible interface for implementing passwordless multi-factor authentication across web-based services. By streamlining the integration process, Stytch’s WebAuthn makes two factor authentication simple and compatible with all FIDO2 certified authenticators.
