Introduction: What is a WebAuthen
WebAuthn is the official web standard for passwordless authentication allowing web browsers to perform verification by using public-key cryptography with support from a broad set of application browsers (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Mobile).
WebAuthn is a browser-based API that allows web applications to use built-in authentication methods (laptop password or pin, mobile, Windows Hello, Biometrics (FaceID/fingerprint), and Hardware Tokens) to simplify and secure user authentication.
In this document you will see how you can activate fingerprint and FaceID validation on your wordpress website’s login.
