Accessing applications on a desktop
In many cases, users will be accessing your applications using a desktop computer. The Nevis Authentication Cloud service can be used to authenticate your users with the secure biometric methods using their mobile phones.
When the users starts the login, they enter their username, which can be a user ID or an email, the backend presents them with a QR code. They scan the code with the Nevis Access app on their phones. The app can authenticate them using their preferred biometric method, and then sends the verification to the backend, which in turn, allows the users access to the application. The sessions are usually identified by unique, time-bound cookies. Using a mobile authenticator for a desktop session is often referred to as out-of-band authentication.
