UX Guidelines

Passkeys Creation and Sign-ins UX Guidelines

The FIDO Alliance UX Working Group created these set of guidelines for passkeys based on UX research we conducted along with a third-party UX research firm. The research included 26 participants across the U.S. who interacted with a Figma prototype and a live demo website which represented a non-regulated industry. All participants used an iPhone or Android mobile device and two participants used a screen reader. Through this research, we identified the three most successful places to prompt users to create a passkey. So, let’s get started!

Webinar Series: Passkeys and UX

The FIDO Alliance’s new UX Guidelines for Passkey Creation and Sign-ins aim to accelerate planning for passkeys integration and execution to achieve a better, more consistent user experience when signing in. The FIDO Alliance is hosting a three-part webinar series to learn the findings and best practices developed through intensive UX research, and get actionable tools to accelerate and optimize your deployment of passkeys for consumer sign-ins.

FIDO Security Key UX Guidelines

The FIDO Security Key UX Guidelines are a set of best practices to help online service providers design a better, more consistent user experience for the consumer security key audience and ultimately maximize adoption. The document provides UX guidelines for all major steps of a consumer’s journey with FIDO security keys: awareness; consideration; enrollment; management; and authentication.

Desktop Authenticator UX Guidelines

The FIDO Desktop Authenticator UX Guidelines are a set of best practices to help service providers encourage their customers to log in with FIDO-based platform authenticators in desktop environments. These guidelines aim to accelerate decision-making during FIDO implementation and specify what information and controls should be given to users through their journey, from FIDO awareness to registration and subsequent logins.
