The user has to prove to the system that the identity he provides is actually theirs

This can be done by providing a username or email, together with a password or PIN code.


How does it work?

The user may provide a username and a password. The username represents their identity. The password proves that the identity is theirs.

When should you use it?

  • When you need the user to prove their identity because the resources provided should be accessible only to them.
