Import the PassageError class from @passageidentity/passage-js package.

import { Passage, PassageError } from '@passageidentity/passage-js'

Then you can catch errors in your frontend application like this.

try {
  // try to activate a magic link
  const res = await this.passage.magicLinkActivate(magicLinkValue)
} catch (err: PassageError) {
  // this method may throw an error of "Not Found" if the magic link
  // is invalid or expired
