This module replaces the regular Drupal login form with a modification of the password-request form, to give the possibility to log in without using a password.
Every time a user needs to log in, only the e-mail address is required. The login link will be sent to the user’s e-mail address, and will expire in 24 hours if not used.
Passwordless disables the password-reset form, and changes the relevant settings at admin/config/people/accounts. Uninstalling the module will restore everything to the way it was before (including the settings). It’s also compatible with other login-enhancing modules, like LoginToboggan.
Passwordless disables the password fields in user-registration and user-profile forms, which means that:
- the system takes care of creating a password for new users
- there’s no longer a requirement for users to reenter their current password when they enter a new e-mail address in their profile.
Due to point number 2, Passwordless depends on Email Change Confirmation, at least until is resolved. Make sure you save settings at admin/config/people/email_confirm, including the “From” address, for the module to work properly.
Passwordless settings can be found at admin/config/system/passwordless.
Email Registration is recommended, to allow users to register just with their e-mail address, without providing a user name.
Enabling HTML5 Tools is encouraged for HTML5 sites, since it allows Passwordless to produce an HTML5-compliant
type="email" field in login forms. Without HTML5 Tools, a regular text field will be produced.
Passwordless follows the idea behind NoPassword, but is all based on Drupal’s native functionality and code.
Important note on 8.x version
This module is currently being ported to Drupal 8, and it’s very likely that it won’t
work, and will break your site. Unless you’re a module developer willing to help with its
conversion, please don’t use it until the 8.x–1.x-dev version is available.
