WWT is providing users an option to login without having to use a password. Users are authenticated by receiving a convenient code to their inbox.

Passwordless Authentication

Passwordless Authentication

Why migrate to passwordless authentication?

Passwordless authentication provides the following:

  • Seamless login across the different WWT platforms (ATC Connect, wwt.com) and across different browsers/devices
  • No long password requirements
  • Access to the ATC Gateway and WWT Labs without a password requirement

 

What is changing?

All registration and login processes have been updated to support passwordless authentication. 

  • Existing accounts that have logged in with a password previously, will be defaulted to logging in with a password. 
  • New accounts created after 11/13 will be defaulted to logging in with passwordless authentication.

To update the default authentication settings, follow the instructions below.
