What are passkeys?

Passkeys are a more secure and convenient alternative to passwords.

With passkeys, your users can authenticate themselves via biometrics using their face or fingerprint, removing the burden of remembering a password.

Authsignal provides SDKs for Web, React Native, iOS, and Android which make it easy to integrate passkeys into your application.

Use cases

There are two key use cases for passkeys:

  • Passwordless authentication - Passkeys can be used to sign users into your application without the need for a password.
  • Step-up authentication - Passkeys can be used to provide an additional layer of security for sensitive actions.

Try our demo

Authsignal has a demo application built using our SDKs that you can use to see passkeys in action.

The demo application show cases how you can use passkeys to sign a user in and to perform step-up authentication when a user performs a sensitive action like withdrawing money from a bank account.
