Passwordless Login – WordPress plugin |


Passwordless Login is a modern way of loggin into your WordPress site without the use of a password.

Join the discussion here:

This is how it works:

Instead of asking users for a password when they try to log in to your website, we simply ask them for their username or email

The plugin creates a temporary authorization token and saves it in a WordPress transient that expires after 10 minutes

Then we send the user an email with a link and the token

The user clicks the link and sends the authorization code to your server

The plugin then checks if the code is valid and creates the log in WordPress cookie, successfully authenticating the user.
