Rewritten with Joomla 4 Core MVC and Bootstrap 5 styling. This is a native Joomla 4 extension, written using the core Joomla 4 MVC API and using Bootstrap 5 styling. The database schema management is also core Joomla as are the extension updates and providing the Download Key (Download ID) in the update site. We are no longer using our FOF and FEF frameworks. The package is smaller, the extension is a bit snappier and it all looks and feels very much like the rest of the Joomla backend.
Option to disable password logins when WebAuthn is enabled for a user account. We contributed a new feature to Joomla 4 which allows you to use with your username and a secure hardware token (on your device's TPM / Secure Enclave) using Web Authentication, typically written as WebAuthn. This is a far superior authentication method than regular username and password authentication. The WebAuthn login is based on strong cryptography managed by secure hardware. Unlike passwords, it's virtually unphishable. It even removed the necessity for multifactor authentication. However, when you enable this feature for your user account you can still log into the site with a username and a password which can be a security concern of its own right. This feature makes sure that once you set up WebAuthn for your user account you will no longer be able to login with a username and a password.!--
