Allow users to authenticate themselves to your websites and apps without relying on a centralized corporation such as Google, Twitter or Facebook. Instead, users can use an Ethereum account that they control. view project page.
Those users will need to use a plugin such as Metamask or a browser such as Mist in order to authenticate themselves in this way. However, there are many advantages including:
- No need to locally store user passwords, only sessions
- No need to include ‘reset password’ functions
- No need to store API keys for Oauth services
- No reliance on an external corporation whose API could go down at any time, grinding your app to a halt
