Passkey Support Added


I have now added the use of passkeys for members to use in order to verify their account login, keeping your account safer from hackers or phishing.

Under your account password and security tab, you can add a passkey. Passkeys are things like, Microsoft Hello face id login, face id or finger print login on phones, laptops, etc.

You can now see your own accessed IP's and sessions under the same area. You can see your own, other users can't. Staff excluded as they already have access to certain things to mitigate spammers.
To use passkeys, click on change in your security settings.

Enable passkeys, and then you access them via the settings cog.

When you then click on add a new passkey, your device will give you a list of options it can perform, otherwise just hit start. Choose one, give it a name and confirm.

On mine, I have added both Apple Face ID (setup on my iphone) and Windows Hello Face ID (setup on my PC) to it, for example. It is device specific, however, if you use Windows Hello across multiple PC's, you only need to set it up once, unless using different ID's on those PC's. Example, if you have a desktop and laptop both using your Microsoft account, then once will make it available on both devices. Just like Apple products, any Apple product you register for your Face ID will unlock here when using said Apple product. Same goes for fingerprint devices, Android devices, etc.
