The PasswordFree Plugin enables a web portal to register and authenticate users without using passwords or SMS one-time passcodes (OTP).
— John Hertrich, CEO of Identité
Beginning today, WordPress developers can get the PasswordFree™ MFA WordPress plugin on Identité’s website at @identite.us/wordpress.
The plugin utilizes innovative, award-winning, and patented Full Duplex Authentication®. This is a key defense against stolen credentials and account take-over. It neutralizes attacks such as phishing, website impersonation, man-in-middle, browser-in-browser, and rogue proxies. Approximately 80% of all known data breaches are the result of stolen credentials. Passwords are also business inhibitors. A recent survey found that 58% of consumers said they abandoned their shopping carts due to log-in frustrations. PasswordFree™ MFA allows an online user to employ their favorite device and biometric as a personal and secure authenticator.
The key benefits of using the PasswordFree™ MFA WordPress Plugin are:
• No code or programming skills needed – one click install
• Online users of the website have no passwords to create, remember, or recover
• Phishing-resistant protection for your website visitors
• Registration in under 5 seconds with a QR Code scan
• Frictionless PasswordFree™ execution using multiple factors of authentication, including a biometric, in less than a second
• Online users make use of their favorite trusted device turning it into a secure HW token
