With OwnID, users can authenticate with phone biometrics, instead of a password, using a minimalistic button that blends seamlessly into existing forms.
The authentication flow is web-based and doesn't require an app installation. Our complete end-to-end platform works cross-OS, cross-device, and cross-domain.
Setup takes minutes.
User identification is based on phone stored cryptographic keys protected with biometrics (no phone number required).
When browsing on any device that isn't a phone, such as a desktop or smart TV, clicking the passwordless button will automatically prompt Apple users to authenticate with their phone’s FaceID/TouchID. Non-Apple users will be presented a QR code that they will scan with their phone and then authenticate via biometrics.
If the user’s phone is unavailable or doesn’t support biometrics, OwnID offers alternative authentication methods, such as a magic link.
