Client Device


Client Device is typically a Local device

WebAuthN Client Device#

Client Device in Web Authentication API is the hardware hosting a WebAuthN Client.

Examples of Client Device are Laptops and Mobile Devices.

The distinction between this and the client is that one client device MAY support running multiple clients, i.e., browser implementations, which all have access to the same authenticators available on that Client Device; and that Platform Authenticators are bound to a WebAuthN Client Device rather than a WebAuthN Client. A Client Device and a client together make up a client platform.
