Email/SMS Authentication

One-Time Passcodes and Magic Links can be sent via email or phone. Passage highly recommends using One-Time Passcodes over Magic Links, they are easier to implement, more secure, and they provide a better user experience.

Login Codes

A one-time passcode(OTP) is a code that is sent to a user via email or SMS. While authenticating, a user will input the passcode to complete login or registration.

Send registration passcode to user

To create a new passcode for registration and send to users, call passage.newRegisterOneTimePasscode() with a user's email address or phone number. A successful call will return a OTP id. The id will be used when you activate the OTP.
String otpId = await passage.newRegisterOneTimePasscode(identifier);

Send login passcode to user

To create a new passcode for login and send to users, call passage.newLoginOneTimePasscode() with a user's email address or phone number. A successful call will return a OTP id. The id will be used when you activate the OTP.
String otpId = await passage.newLoginOneTimePasscode(identifier);

Activate passcode

When the user inputs their OTP into your app, you will send their OTP input string and OTP id through passage.oneTimePasscodeActivate , which will return an AuthResult containing your user's tokens (which are automatically stored securely on device).
AuthResult authResult = await passage.oneTimePasscodeActivate(otp, otpId);
​
Magic Links are hyperlinks that are sent to a user via email or SMS. Clicking the link authenticates your users and redirects them to your app.
To create a new magic link for registration and send to users, call Passage.newRegisterMagicLink() with a user's email address or phone number. A successful call will return a Magic Link id. The id will be used when you Activate the link and Check the Link Status.
String magicLinkId = await passage.newRegisterMagicLink(identifier);
To create a new magic link for login and send to users, call passage.newLoginMagicLink() with a user's email address or phone number. A successful call will return a Magic Link id. The id will be used when you Activate the link and Check the Link Status.
String magicLinkId = await passage.newLoginMagicLink(identifier);
iOS Prerequisite: Setup Universal Linking​
Android Prerequisite: Setup App Links​
Web Prerequisite: Setup URL Strategy​
When the user taps/clicks on the Magic Link url follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    Parse out the Magic Link:
Uri uri = Uri.parse(passageMagicLinkUri);
String magicLink = uri.queryParameters['psg_magic_link'];
  1. 2.
    Pass that Magic Link string to passage.magicLinkActivate()to validate. On success, this method will return an AuthResult containing your user's tokens (which are automatically stored securely on device).
AuthResult authResult = await passage.magicLinkActivate(magicLink);
​
If the user opens the magic link on a different device or browser than where they initially requested the magic link, you can continually check the status of the link in your app. Once the Magic Link has been activated, passage.getMagicLinkStatus will return an AuthResult and save the user's tokens securely on device.
try {
AuthResult authResult = await passage.getMagicLinkStatus(magicLinkId);
} catch (error) {
// Magic link not activated yet, do nothing.
}
