How to Implement Passkeys: Guide for Businesses

Imagine a world where users no longer need to remember countless passwords or worry about phishing scams. That's exactly what passkey promises. Let's dive into how it works, its benefits, and how to implement passkey seamlessly into your software.

Effortless logins with biometric security

Passkey replaces traditional passwords with a more secure and convenient approach. Instead of entering a complex combination of characters, just use your fingerprint or facial recognition (Touch ID, Face ID) to log in across various devices and platforms. Passkey eliminates the risk of forgetting passwords and makes users less susceptible to phishing attacks, as there's nothing to steal.

A win-win for users and businesses

For users, passkey offers:

  • Enhanced security: Passkeys eliminate the risk of password breaches and phishing attacks, as there's no password to steal and they rely on strong cryptography.
  • Unmatched convenience: Users can ditch complex passwords and simply use their fingerprint or facial recognition for effortless logins across different devices.
  • Seamless cross-device compatibility: Accessing accounts from any device becomes a breeze with passkeys.

Meanwhile, businesses benefit from:

  • Fraud prevention: Stronger authentication with passkeys reduces the risk of unauthorized access and fraudulent activities on your platform.
  • Improved user experience: Faster and easier logins lead to a happier user base, potentially increasing recommendations and user satisfaction.
  • Reduced operational costs: Businesses can save resources by eliminating password management and focusing on scaling passkey storage instead.

Implementing passkeys: Choosing the right approach

Businesses have two main options for implementing passkey technology:

Option 1: Third-party integrations

This involves using established providers to integrate passkeys with your existing systems.


  • Faster implementation: Utilizing established third-party providers allows for quicker integration and deployment of passkey technology.
  • Leveraged expertise: Businesses benefit from the expertise and infrastructure of experienced providers, potentially reducing development risks.


  • Limited control: Businesses may have less control over the user experience and overall design compared to a custom solution.
  • Ongoing costs: Third-party integrations often involve recurring costs such as annual fees or per-user charges.

Option 2: Custom passkeys

This approach means building your own solution for integrating passkey functionality into your systems.


  • Complete control: Businesses have full control over the design and user experience of the authentication process, ensuring it aligns perfectly with their specific needs.
  • Potential cost savings: Developing a custom solution can be cost-effective in the long run, with expenses primarily associated with scaling the application.


  • Development effort: Building a custom solution requires significant time and technical expertise, potentially delaying implementation timelines.
  • Maintenance burden: Developers are responsible for ongoing maintenance and updates to ensure the security and functionality of the custom solution.

We support your choice

Regardless of the chosen approach, we are here to help your business implement a secure and user-friendly passkey solution. We offer:

  • Integration of specific frameworks with third-party providers.
  • A simple and compatible solution developed at Anadea that integrates seamlessly with popular frameworks like Python and Django.

Let’s take a look at what exactly we’re talking about.

Third-party showcase

Due to passkey being a high-demand feature, many third-party services were introduced to fit the purpose of handling passkeys. Some of the examples of such services might be:


JavaScript library for implementing WebAuthn API. A core standard for passwordless authentication. Enables developers to add biometric authentication options like fingerprint or facial recognition. Supports cross-platform compatibility for seamless user experience across different devices.

Microsoft Authenticator SDKs

Microsoft offers SDKs for Android, iOS, and other platforms to integrate with their authenticator app. Allows developers to leverage the existing user base and functionalities of Microsoft Authenticator. Simplifies adding secure multi-factor authentication options to applications.

Acquired by Bitwarden, this framework simplifies integrating passwordless options into applications. It offers open-source libraries and tools for WebAuthn and FIDO2 implementation and provides developer-friendly documentation and tutorials for a smooth integration process.

Although these resources are popular solutions for passkey implementation, they often appear platform-specific. Other than that, third-party services often increase spending on the development due to their own cost—it might be the cost for a month of usage for enterprise solutions, cost-per-user, or a single-time fee.

How businesses can further customize passkey

If you’re seeking to leverage the full potential of passkey technology, you have several customization options at your disposal, enabling a more personalized and secure user experience. Here's how:

Authentication systems sync

The integration of passkey with existing authentication mechanisms is crucial for businesses looking to offer a seamless transition from traditional password systems. By syncing passkeys with current login methods, companies ensure that users experience no disruption in service. This integration enhances and maintains the familiarity of the login process, easing users into the new system without confusion or inconvenience.

Designing login flows

Customization extends to the start of the user experience by correcting the login flow. Businesses can design these flows to reflect their brand's identity and user interface guidelines, creating a unique login experience. Whether it's simplifying steps to access services or introducing additional security checks in critical areas, the flexibility in designing user flows allows businesses to cater to their specific audience's needs and preferences, enhancing overall satisfaction.

Passkey lifespans control

Balancing security with convenience is a delicate task, and one of the ways businesses can achieve this is by controlling the lifespans of passkeys. Deciding on a passkey's validity period involves assessing the service's security requirements and the user's convenience. Shorter lifespans may offer higher security by requiring frequent reauthentication, while longer lifespans prioritize user convenience at the potential cost of increased risk. By customizing this aspect, businesses can strike an optimal balance that suits their operational model and user expectations.
