Authentication based on the FIDO2 and WebAuthn standards is a secure and low-friction way for your users to log in. Based on public-key cryptography, WebAuthn replaces shared secrets (like passwords) for stronger factors like possession and biometric authentication.
How FIDO authentication helps your app
Elevate your app’s user experience by logging users in with their facial ID or fingerprints.
FIDO key pairs only work with the intended application, nipping any credential phishing attempts in the bud.
Private by default
With FIDO authentication, users’ biometrics never leave their device and they cannot be tracked across sites.
