WooCommerce Biometric Login module allows customers to configure their biometric identifications and then use them to login fast & securely on your store without entering any login details. This plugin uses WebAuthn which is a next-generation network authentication technology designed to make network authentication more efficient and secure by replacing the password with USB authenticators, fingerprint recognition, Windows Hello compatible cameras and more.
As a user, you don’t have to care about the technical details behind WebAuthn. Just install and enable this plugin and you can experience the latest web authentication technology on your WooCommerce store.
In the past, U2F devices such as USB authenticators were often used as “second-factor authenticators,” which means they were just a second barrier after passwords. Now, with WebAuthn, we can use a larger range of authenticators, including U2F devices, to replace passwords and make the authentication process more efficient without compromising security.
To use WebAuthn, you need to determine if your device supports it. The latest version of browsers and operating systems generally support WebAuthn, so consider updating your browser and operating system if you find that you cannot use WebAuthn properly.
