Wouldn’t it be great if you could log in to your WordPress site just like you do on your mobile? That’s exactly what’s coming soon with iThemes Security Pro! Meet passkeys with biometric logins finally available in version 7.2.
Biometric Logins & Passkeys
In the next major release, the WordPress security plugin will support secure biometric logins such as Face ID, Touch ID and Windows Hello as well as passkey technology. Powered by the WebAuthn protocol, it is supported by all major browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, for example.
Inconvenient two-factor authentication (2FA), password managers, and complex password requirements are finally a thing of the past. Website admins and users alike will love it!
As far as we know, iThemes is the first company to introduce this passwordless login experience as the primary login method in WordPress. Check out the benefits:
- No more stolen or leaked passwords
- Protection against phishing attempts
- Easy to use
- Mobile logins the easy way
- The most secure login method for WordPress
Biometric Logins and Passkeys will launch later this month. All customers of iThemes Security Pro, the Essentials Bundle, the Plugin Suite, and the WordPress Web Designer’s Toolkit will automatically get access to it. Stay tuned!
By the way, iThemes Security Pro already supports passwordless logins with magic links since 2019.
