Friday 13 November 2020 09:08 CET | News

LINE Corporation has introduced passwordless authentication for the LINE app on iPad, allowing users to log in using the biometric information stored on their smartphones.

The new feature is based on FIDO standards and eliminates the need for passwords. LINE joined the FIDO Alliance as a board member in 2017. In 2019, FIDO2 authentication was implemented into LINE Pay. Now, LINE customers can also use FIDO2 biometric authentication to log into the LINE app for iPad.

To utilise biometric authentication for the LINE app on iPad, biometric information must first be registered on a smartphone and linked with a LINE account. Furthermore, beginning with 2020, users will be able to sign into the desktop version of LINE with passwordless authentication using the biometric information stored on their smartphones. Biometric authentication can be used to migrate LINE accounts and sign into LINE family services beginning of 2021.
