QR CODE IDENTIFICATION

ABOUT QR CODE IDENTIFICATION

QR code identification is a solution where users scan a QR code with their phone instead of typing in their email, social security number. It is becoming more and more popular due to its ease of use and the heightened security it brings in combatting identity fraud.

HOW IT WORKS WITH FREJA eID

QR code identification is fully supported in Freja eID, both on mobile and desktop.

In both scenarios the procedure is very simple and intuitive.

On desktop:

  1. A user comes to your website via a desktop browser
  2. A QR code is generated on the screen
  3. They scan the QR code with their phone and approve with Freja eID

On mobile:

  1. A user comes to your website and chooses to identify themselves with Freja eID
  2. The QR code is verified in the background and they are taken straight to Freja eID
  3. Same as above, they approve the action with Freja eID to gain access to your service

On mobile phones, the procedure is even simpler since no QR code is shown to the user. We still consider it QR code identification since the same process is happening in the background.

WHY YOU SHOULD IMPLEMENT QR CODE LOGIN

Implementing QR code login with Freja eID benefits you by: increasing security, reducing costs, and improving user experience.

QR code login is significantly safer than regular login because:

  1. There is no typing required, so sensitive personal data is not at risk
  2. A new QR code is generated for each login attempt, making them even harder to fake
  3. A QR requires the physical presence of the person who is logging in

By opting for QR code login you will also be cutting down on costs, as implementing QR code login doesn’t require much developer time and resources.

Finally, you will be providing your customers/users an experience that is not only safer, but more user-friendly as well. As mentioned above, QR code login doesn’t require the user to enter any information themselves, and, if they are on their phone, the login experience is even better.
