Security is a big concern for any web developer, or at least one who realises that security is primarily up to them. If you want to learn a bit more about this topic take a look at the article "How to secure WordPress".
When managing a website you need to be sure that your data is protected 24/7. The first defense against an attack is a good quality password, but coming up with one that is secure and easy to remember can be a difficult task. Unfortunately, this is often the reason why simple passwords are set, which, even if you may think it is impossible, are not a difficult task at all. This is where the new LoginID plug-in comes to the rescue, allowing you to "register and authenticate using highly secure public key cryptography with a FIDO certificate instead of a password“.
According to the press release:
"With this capability, websites can offer their users a secure, legally compliant way to log in, eliminating the risk of account takeover, phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks."
The plugin eliminates the need for users to enter a password when using your website, blog or online shop. It replaces static username and password with public/private key credentials and is GDPR and PSD2 compliant.
After installing the plugin, you will be able to choose whether to replace all users' login details or only selected ones.
"Unlike other popular single-sign on solutions, user information cannot be used for tracking purposes, ensuring privacy on websites that use the LoginID WordPress plugin," said Simon Law, CEO of Login ID Inc. "The plugin can be easily implemented by a WordPress site owner in minutes, making it the fastest way to add strong FIDO-certified authentication to websites."
The plugin is completely free and you can find it in the WordPress repository by clicking on the button below:

Test this plugin and the login method itself. I suspect you will be positively surprised by the comfort you will experience.
