4D for iOS: Sign In With QR Code

Automatically translated from English

As app users, we don’t pay much attention to the sophisticated authentication technologies that secure our applications. But they are essential to help prevent malicious people from usurping our identity. That’s why the authentication process that is included in 4D for iOS is so important to us. But many 4D for iOS users have been asking for more, and specifically, for new modern ways to login.

The new SignInWithQRCode login form template lets users log into their apps by scanning QRCode, and grants access directly to already authenticated users.

How it works

1. Log into your website.
2. Generate a QR Code that contains the login and encrypted password.
3. From the Sign In With QR Code login form, scan the generated QR Code.

As you can see, it’s a great way to authenticate users and switch from your website to your mobile app just by scanning a QR code!

And you, how would you like to log into your apps?

Don’t hesitate to give us feedback on the 4D forum, and check out the dedicated tutorial for more details. See you there!
