Platform detection and management

  • Detection of platform and operating system

  • Knowledge about platform’s passkey-readiness

User guidance at new device login

  • Recommend preferred login on a certain platform

  • Guide to alternatives if passkeys are not available or user does not want to use them on current platform

Platform-specific alternatives

  • Provide support and alternatives on all platforms

  • Provide alternative to passkey sharing via Bluetooth / QR codes

  • Cover edge cases (e.g. old OS versions)

Corbado ensures

Backwards compatibility

Compatibility detection

  • Detect passkey-readiness, platform authenticators and Conditional-UI-readiness

  • Suggest other user devices that are compatible with passkeys

Familiar login flows

  • Promote passkey login on suitable devices while offering other login options on older devices

  • Focus on providing known authentication flows on all devices while promoting passkeys

Corbado saves you

Integration time

No passkey know-how required

  • No need to read through lengthy technical standards and docs

  • No need to work through tutorials and reference implementations (otherwise very time consuming as there is no central starting point)

Product intelligence out-of-the-box

  • Intelligent cross-device and cross-platform flows

  • Pre-built UI components (e.g. with Conditional UI) and user communication

No maintenance for infrastructure & code

  • Corbado sets up and maintains the FIDO server

  • Corbado automatically updates infrastructure and code

  • Reliable, blazing fast email and SMS delivery with spam folder prevention and phone number / email address validation

Corbado improves

UX handling

Device & user preference management

  • User-specific device detection and management

  • Detection and storing of preferred authentication method for a device

  • Notification about new devices and login attempts

User communication

  • Pre-defined and tested messages to educate users about what is going to happen

  • Continuously updated user messages to new standard phrasing

  • Avoidance of confusing hardware security key prompts by disabling roaming authenticators

Customizable design

  • Application of corporate identity, e.g. to email templates

  • Flexible adaption of pre-built UI components

  • Integration of Corbado's APIs into existing frontend design

Corbado helps with

User migration

Passkeys promotion

  • Offer to delete passwords from database for existing users

Corbado provides

Recovery services

Self-service password resets

  • Re-use of existing password reset flows

  • Provisioning of passwordless login (e.g. passkeys, email magic link, SMS OTP) instead of coming up with a new password

(Passwordless) fallback options

  • Login fallbacks with existing password flow or other passwordless alternatives in case of errors

  • Authentication guranteed in case users have never set a password
