The First Step to Passwordless with Temporary Access Pass


 Passwordless authentication options, like FIDO2 and passwordless phone sign-in via the Microsoft Authenticator app, provide users with a secure way to log in without using a traditional password. Users have two primary avenues to initiate these Passwordless methods:

  • Leveraging existing Microsoft Entra multifactor authentication methods.
  • Employing a Temporary Access Pass (TAP)
A Temporary Access Pass is a time-bound passcode that allows users to sign in with this temporary code to onboard to passwordless authentication methods, such as phone sign-in with an authentication app or FIDO2 with Windows Hello for Business.
