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.
Following authentication methods can be used to enable passwordless authentication in an application.
Talk to our support to learn more about the authentication options and how to enable true passwordless authentication for your application.
Organizations can improve their security and user experience by adopting passwordless, which removes passwords from the login process.
The benefits of using passwordless authentication are:
Passwordless authentication is applicable to a wide range of businesses and use cases. CyLock APIs can be consumed to enable Passwordless authentication for any web application, desktop login, or for Single Sign-On (SSO).
Traditional passwords are easy to steal, but passwordless authentication throws a wrench in hackers' plans.
Here's why it's more secure:
Passwordless authentication offers both security and convenience. Experience the difference and enjoy a safer digital life!
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:
