Passwordless authentication works in a way where, instead of passwords, users can use other
authentication factors that are intrinsically safer. It uses more secure alternatives like a
password on mobile or on What's App, push notifications, or biometric authentication. Passwordless authentication provides a variety of functional and business benefits. It prevents
password spraying, credential stuffing, spear phishing, brute force attacks, offline cracking, and
others. It provides greater security and improves the user experience.
