Can i turn off password usage and allow exclusively passkeys?

Post by hackermade » Thu Mar 21, 2024 10:44 am

Greetings, I was wondering if it is possible to now use a password with a 2fa and instead use only passkeys as admin. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Hi there, thanks for the reply. I have generated a passkey and I know how to log in and log out with it but I want to remove the password field on the /administrator page so I force everyone to log in with passkeys.

Do the same as viewtopic.php?f=844&t=1007976 but change the code you comment out.

Please note that when you change core files you have to redo that with each upgrade. No fun
