The registration process can also be streamlined through mechanisms such as progressive profiling. You learn more about your user step by step by requesting further information on a specific occasion.

Biometric features, uniquely generated codes or social login: cidaas out-of-the-box allows you to offer your users simple, fast and secure password alternatives. Surprise your users with more convenience through password-free authentication and in the real world with Digital Access Management.

At home, users may be reluctant to perform the Forgot Password process, but on the mobile device, users may be more prone to resentment. Attract loyal customers through a convenient login and personalized addresses.
The number of passwords and password changing process takes time, even for employees using in-house applications. The password forgetting process is also time-consuming and expensive. With cidaas you can make your processes efficient, especially with cidaas Single-Sign-On – one identity across all channels.
PASSWORDS ARE INSECURE
For a long time, the BSI (German Federal Office for Safety) has issued guidelines regarding the point at which a password is classified as secure and the interval at which a new password should be issued. The fact is that the security of a password depends on the user. In addition, it is easier for criminals to crack passwords if it is known what requirements apply to the password. Finally, a password can also be passed on.
Passwords have some disadvantages. Therefore, the slogan should be: "Bye password! Hello modern login!"
For access to particularly sensitive accounts, security can be further increased through two-factor authentication.

Passwordless authentication means a login without username and password. The traditional login has become outdated. Login now takes place more through modern, alternative authentication methods such as biometric methods, One-Time-Passwords or Social Login. Methods such as TouchID, face recognition or push message are already commonplace for users.
Among the most popular passwordless authentication methods are TouchID, face recognition and pattern recognition. They have been standard on mobile devices for several years. Smartphone manufacturers recognized early on that access to the smartphone must be protected and ideally should be input-free. In addition, there are several other methods which can be grouped together under the keyword One-Time-Password (one-time password). Their attraction is that they are convenient and secure, as they are valid for a limited time.
