The most prominent advantage of passwordless authentication is that it reduces costs for IT training and other resources. This solution reduces enablement and helpdesk calls, which ultimately results in a lower total cost of ownership. Moreover, it is easy to deploy on both iOS and Android devices. Furthermore, it is available for both iOS and Android. Lastly, it has the first identity proofing service, which utilizes the Driver License Data Verification Service (DLDSVS) to verify a user’s actual identity.
Passwordless authentication uses strong authentication methods that never share secrets. These solutions use pairs of cryptographic keys to authenticate users. A pair of these keys is generated when a user registers a new account. The private key belongs to the user and can’t be shared with anyone. Meanwhile, the public key is publicly accessible and can be held by anyone. The public key is always the same. This means that a user can use the same key pair when logging into a specific account.
