Set Up a Passkey for Your MaxMind Account

Passkeys are a passwordless method of authentication that are more resistant to phishing, credential stuffing, and other remote attacks.

Passkeys are stored on an authenticator, which is either a physical device or a software application such as iCloud Keychain, a Chrome profile, or a password manager (LastPass, 1Password, etc.). You can learn more about passkeys from open-source authentication solution Hanko (at this link) or dev documentation put together by W3C WebAuthn Community Adoption Group and members of the FIDO Alliance (at this link).

To manage your passkeys, click on ‘Sign-in Security’ in the Account menu of your account portal [direct link, login required].
