What is “Conditional UI” and how to implement it?


To avoid an extra passkey button (non-passkey logins must still be possible as not everyone will immediately switch to passkeys), a concept called “Conditional UI” is introduced. “Conditional UI” lets your browser display all available passkeys in an “auto-fill” dropdown that opens directly under the username field of a login form. If no passkey is available, the user needs to type in the email address and password (as it is now). If a passkey is available, it can be selected from the dropdown and the passkey authentication flow via Face ID or fingerprint starts. Basically, passkeys can be "hidden" behind the username field.

"Conditional UI" is currently implemented in Chromium (which is the base for other browsers, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Opera). It will be released with Chrome M108 on November 29, 2022 (other browsers will follow soon after).

Check our docs for "Conditional UI" implementation details.

Which passkey-related problems does Corbado solve?

Passkeys and “Conditional UI” are currently being rolled out. Not all devices, platforms and browsers provide full support yet. During this transition period, Corbado helps you in solving the following problems for online services that want to offer passkey login:

Detection and storage of passkey-devices and non-passkey-devices

Detection and storage of passkey-only users, migrated users (passkey and password) and password-only users

Compability of a device and browser with “Conditional UI”

Cross-device access (if QR code scanning and Bluetooth pairing is not a viable option) by providing fallback authentication, e.g. secure email magic links or SMS OTPs

How to start
passkey implementation?

Corbado provides the most recent guides and tutorials for implementing passkeys in any website or app. Subscribe to our passkeys newsletter to stay updated about new features and examples.

Web

Check our working demo of a passkey implementation in JavaScript and PHP.
Moreover, we have a guide (JavaScript + Node.js) that teaches how to:

  • Set up a server that supports passkeys

  • Create a sample website with passkey login

What will be needed for the guide?

  • A passkey-capable web app (we provide a sample application)

  • A passkey-capable server component (we provide the Corbado API for that)

iOS

We will soon release a guide that shows you how to implement passkeys for native iOS apps.

Android

We will soon release a guide that shows you how to implement passkeys for native Android apps.
