With this plugin, your customers can log in using a passkey.
What exactly is behind the term "passkeys"?
In a way, they are the magic key that gives you access to your personal data and purchases from online stores and other websites. For example, you can access and complete your order when shopping at an online store. While you normally enter a password and a username, here a unique code is used that identifies you as a user. When you enable passkeys, you don't have to remember your password every time you want to log in to the site. Instead, you can enter the passkey to log in quickly and securely. Some websites also offer the option to use passkeys to speed up the checkout process. For example, if you have your credit card details stored in your profile, you can enter the passkey to complete the purchase faster. However, it is important to note that you should keep Passkeys safe so that no one else can access your personal information. You should also make sure that you use a unique and secure passkey that is hard to guess.
Another example, in relation to a Google account.
Imagine how convenient it would be to log into your Google account without entering a password. All you have to do is enable the passkey feature in your account. The next time you log in, you'll receive a notification on your smartphone that you just need to confirm - for example, by scanning your fingerprint or entering a code. Once you have confirmed your identity, you are automatically logged into your Google account. A simple but effective protection mechanism that saves you time and nerves! As a merchant, you can now serve your customers even easier and faster by using Passkey technology. Your customers can easily use their Passkey on their cell phone to store in your store without having to register or buy anything. However, as a merchant, you need to sign up with a passkey provider so that your store can connect to customers and verify passkeys. We recommend the provider HANKO.IO, where you can register and install our plugin. With the registered API key you can start immediately and inspire your customers.
Passkey works only for customer login in frontend, not for backend login for admins.
