    Biometric WebAuthn Module for Magento 2

    Updated 25 October 2023

    The Biometric WebAuthn Module for Magento 2 (Adobe Commerce) allows the admin to enable Biometric web authentication for the customer’s login process. Now by using this module the customers just need to use the fingerprint scanner or face recognition of their smartphone mobile to log in to the website.

    The customer first needs to register on WebAuthn by using Login Options under My Accounts. After that whenever the customer wants to login then they can simply click on the “Use WebAuthn” button to use the fingerprint scanner to log in to the website.

    The Biometric WebAuthn module helps customers login without entering a user id or a password. By clicking on the Use Webauthn the system tries to identify the user authenticity and helps proceed to log in.

    The customers can use various methods such as fingerprint scan or face scan. This is a very innovative module that excludes the customers from entering a password every time they wish to log in.
