Chek uses passkeys for secure account and card access. Passkeys are known for their high level of security and resistance to phishing attacks.
Passkeys are linked to a user's device as a credential, eliminating the reliance on easily compromised passwords.
What is a Passkey?
A passkey is a secure digital key used as an alternative to passwords. It's stored on your device and linked to your Chek account. With biometric authentication like fingerprints (TouchID) or facial recognition (FaceID), you can easily access your account without complex passwords.
