Portier is an email-based, passwordless
authentication service that you can host yourself.

Demo Design Using Portier Self-Hosting Specifications

Note: Portier is in early beta. If you plan to use Portier, please subscribe to the mailing list and track the portier-broker GitHub repo so you're aware of any breaking changes or security updates.


Portier (pronounced "Por-tee-ay") is a self-hostable login service that you can use instead of passwords. Portier sits between your website and third-party services like Google Sign-In to provide your users the fastest and easiest login experience, without ever needing a new password.

Best of all, Portier works for everyone, because it can fall back to traditional "click the link" methods of email confirmation.

Portier is inspired by many projects and considers itself a spiritual successor to Mozilla Persona.
