UNLOQ provides a free, easy to use and integrate, strong authentication systems that replaces passwords with your phone.

UNLOQ increases the security of your digital properties through a distributed authentication system that doesn’t require your users to remember any passwords. From now on you can forget about them wherever you see the UNLOQ login box. Just click the UNLOQ button and you’ll receive an authentication request on your phone for you to approve or deny.

No connection on your phone? Lost phone? We’ve got you covered. Click the menu button on the bottom right corner to see the other login option the application allows. These might come either as time based one time password (you’ll find the code under the Tokens menu option in the UNLOQ app) or e-mail login.

We believe it’s about your application & your users. Make the authentication system your own: - Personalize the appearance of the notification messages and choose a plugin theme to go with your design, - Set the data you want your users to provide when registering or signing in, - Determine what security measures works best for you. You may want to restrict the login backup methods, to request TOTP for each login, set up request origin paths and timers

Of course they can. As long as your users register on their UNLOQ mobile apps using the same e-mail address as their WordPress accounts, they can start using UNLOQ without any other configurations. You could also use UNLOQ to invite your users by e-mails.

How does UNLOQ accommodate logins for WordPress users who do not have smartphones or don’t have internet access on their phone?

UNLOQ offers three ways to authenticate: UNLOQ push notification, time-based one time password and e-mail login. Users without internet connection or without a smartphone may use one of the other two options. You can choose what authentication methods you want to make available to your users from UNLOQ administrative panel.

How secure is UNLOQ authentication system?

UNLOQ’s security architecture is fully distributed, which means UNLOQ stores no user passwords on its servers. We only store your e-mail, name and profile picture (the last two are not required, but might enhance the user experience), but these cannot be used to login into any service by themselves. Only you, from your phone (or e-mail in case of e-mail login) can authorize the authentication request. All data on your phone are kept encrypted with AES-256-CBC and we use SSL on all communication channels.


For now, UNLOQ is available in English. Please consider helping translate UNLOQ.
