iThemes Security Sneak Peek: Biometric Logins and Passkeys for WordPress
The easiest and most secure way to log in to your WordPress site is coming to iThemes Security Pro! In the next major release, iThemes Security will add biometric logins (like Face ID, Touch ID, and Windows Hello) and passkey technology supported by all major browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Now website admins and end users can have secure logins without the inconvenience of additional two-factor apps, password managers, or complex password requirements.
Powered by the WebAuthn protocol, these login methods provide an innovative passwordless login experience that is the future for securing sensitive information online, including logging in to any WordPress site. As the future of logins for all sites and apps, iThemes Security is the first to bring it to WordPress as the primary login method.
