FIDO UAF, or Universal Authentication Framework, is a FIDO-compliant authentication framework that allows users to authenticate using various biometric methods or other secure authentication mechanisms across different platforms and services.

Biometric & Passwordless Authentication

Biometric authentication and passwordless authentication are the two pillars of the FIDO UAF.

UAF supports a wide range of biometric authentication methods, such as fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, and voice recognition.

It also enables passwordless authentication, reducing reliance on traditional passwords.

Benefits of FIDO UAF

UAF is designed to work across different devices and operating systems, providing a consistent and interoperable authentication experience. These frameworks prioritize user data privacy by ensuring that sensitive biometric data is securely stored and processed.

Furthermore, the use of biometrics and strong authentication methods enhances security and reduces the risk of unauthorized access.


FIDO UAF implementations are commonly integrated into mobile devices, applications, and web services. This allows users to enjoy passwordless and secure authentication experiences while benefiting from the convenience of biometric recognition.
