Eliminating passwords

#2 Product of the DayOctober 17, 2018

Byepass is a multi-factor replacement for passwords.

Byepass sends users a magic link via email for authentication, then creates a cross-site session so they can login instantly to other websites/app that use Byepass.

Byepass is a drop-in replacement for passwords that can be simply and quickly integrated with any website/app using an API.

  • Pros: 

    very low friction for the user, very intuitive for the developer

    Cons: 

    Its confusing in that the challenge result window/screen is redundent and you have to go back to the original window/screen esp on mobile

    When I requested a log in to developer area (which I assume is how any Byepass login would work) on my mobile, I thought it had not worked and having tried it on my desktop I now realize what had happened.

    I did not realize that the original screen I had logged into had changed to show the contents because the mobile window/ screen telling me that the challenge had worked was blocking it (even though it was still there).

    I presume that your use-case is that a user would request login on a desktop and then authorize the email challenge on their mobile. In this case it would work perfectly as the the original descktop login request would be showing logged in content.

    Benny Groover has used this product for one day.

The site has almost no information... can you go into detail about how this is multi-factor?

@lagvin we offer email authorisation, one time tokens and SMS verification at present, all in one challenge/request.

If your website or app asks people for an email and password to login, you NEED to use Byepass now!

@domm I think if you'll create a tutorial about integration with React / create-react-app - it'll get some additional views

So this is what Medium does with passwords (there are non, they send you a link per email every time you wanna log in) but you can integrate it in any site, right? I only see the Wordpress integration advertised on your website though, can we use it on others?

@anna_0x absolutely, there is an API for integration with any site/platform. WordPress plugin just uses the API and offers quick code less setup for webmaster hosts.

@domm cool! Hope to check it out soon! Not relevant to what I'm currently doing but perhaps will be in the near future. Love seeing products like these because I hate passwords 😆

If someone has access to your email, would you ever know if they were logging into your accounts via Byepass?

@timwinfree why would you do this to me. i was on a roll and then Patreon decided to get crazy and this comment makes me wonder if google would allow that. also, what if someone does get into your wordpress and makes a Byepass for it. they could pester you for life.

dommMaker@domm · Aussie tech & startup guy
@timwinfree we send email alerts (to that email) any time someone logs in using it. Obviously if someone has control of your email they could attempt to hide the emails before you notice, but much the same scenario as if they had control now and do forgot password.

@domm Oh yeah, for sure. Just wondering if something like (optional) text msg confirmations would make sense here
domm
dommMaker@domm · Aussie tech & startup guy
@timwinfree yes building extra authentication through byepass after email confirmation through either app verification (Touch ID/Face ID) or SMS authentication

@timwinfree which doesn’t effect the flow or api usage from our webmasters/app owners at all, we do all the heavy lifting.

Where were you when I painstakingly built this myself? 😤 Also, how did you implement the cross-site session? 👀 cuz that got me stumped.

@tabansi just pure magic 😉
