Password-based authentication is vulnerable to various types of attacks that target users of any system. Hackers use multiple ways to trick users into giving away their passwords or use traditional methods to crack the passwords.

We believe a simple and secure way to authenticate users is key to protecting a digital identity.

An identity verification method without a password is known as passwordless authentication. Instead of using the traditional password, the user authenticates using a mobile device or a security token (something they have) or through biometrics (something they are) instead of using the traditional password.

Passwordless authentication methods should be equally effective and secure. That’s why CyLock employs strong public key cryptography methods to provide secure Passwordless authentication using the end user’s mobile phone.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does passwordless authentication work?
Ditch the passwords! Passwordless authentication uses things you have (like your phone) or are (fingerprint) to verify your identity. No more remembering complex codes. CyLock offers advanced security solutions, including passwordless options, for a seamless and secure experience.
Why do we need passwordless authentication?
Passwords are a hassle and a security risk! Passwordless logins ditch passwords altogether, using methods like fingerprint, QR or phone verification for stronger security and a smoother experience.
How is passwordless authentication more secure?

Traditional passwords are easy to steal, but passwordless authentication throws a wrench in hackers' plans.

Here's why it's more secure:

  • No passwords to steal: Forget complex combinations! Use your fingerprint, face scan, or security key, things unique to you.
  • Stronger protection: These methods are much harder to replicate or guess, making unauthorized access significantly more difficult.

Passwordless authentication offers both security and convenience. Experience the difference and enjoy a safer digital life!

What is the difference between passwordless and OTP?

Forget remembering passwords! Use your fingerprint, face scan, or security key for secure logins. Think "keyless entry" for your accounts.

OTP (One-Time Password):

This adds a temporary code (via text or email) to your existing password, making it harder for hackers even if they steal your password.

Both offer strong security, but:
  • Passwordless is more convenient (no passwords to remember)
  • OTP adds an extra layer to your existing password.
