LoginID Launches FIDO-certified WordPress Plugin for Passwordless Authentication

Plugin allows websites using WordPress to enable strong authentication in as little as five clicks

San Mateo, CA, May 11, 2021. - LoginID Inc., creators of the FIDO-powered passwordless authentication solution LoginID, announced today the launch of its WordPress plugin. The plugin is free to install, and enables websites powered by WordPress to install strong passwordless authentication in five clicks. The solution also helps WordPress websites align to emerging and existing compliance regulations, such as PSD2 and GDPR.

Developing a plugin that enables passwordless authentication, will bolster the security for potentially over 35 million websites powered by WordPress. With this plugin, WordPress-created websites, in just five clicks, can integrate a customizable, quick, easy and regulatory-compliant way to authenticate their users.

The passwordless, regulatory compliant biometric login plugin is the company’s latest innovation that provides WordPress-created websites the ability to add passwordless, biometric sign on and registration. With this capability, websites can offer their users a secure, compliant way to login, thereby eliminating the risks of account takeovers, phishing, SIM swaps and man-in-the-middle attacks.

“Unlike other popular single-sign on solutions, user information cannot be used for tracking purposes, ensuring a private experience on websites that integrate the LoginID WordPress Plugin,” said Simon Law, CEO of Login ID Inc. “The plugin can be easily installed by any WordPress developer in minutes, making it the fastest way to add FIDO-certified strong authentication into websites.”
