First ever signup to a website/app that uses Cotter
The user will then enter the verification code or press the magic link
✨At this point, we tie the user's browser or device with their email / phone number. When the user then sign up to another website that uses Cotter, the user don't need to re-verify their email or phone number. Instead, our website or SDK will check if we recognize the device with the credentials, and will automatically go to step 3 above.
After the first signup, anytime the user need to sign-up or login to any website or app that uses Cotter, the user just needs to enter the email or phone number they want to use, and they'll be instantly verified.
On subsequent logins, the user don't need to enter verification code
Currently our sessions lasts for 30 days. After 30 days, the user have to re-enter a verification code.
In the near future, we will allow you to check the last login timestamp and decide whether you'd like to send another verification code or not.
