Passwordless Login

ASP.NET Zero provides passwordless login feature out of the box, but it is disabled by default. It can be enabled in the User Management tab, on the host settings page.

When a user requests to login using passwordless login feature, a 6-digit unique code will be sent to users email address or phone number depending on users selection on passwordless login page.

  • A Passwordless login code can be used only once.
  • When a passwordless login code is verified, it can't be used anymore.
