Bolt now offers device-based automatic login during checkout, which recognizes active sessions on verified devices to skip the authentication step. This feature is designed to reduce friction while keeping shoppers' data secure.
- Verified device: After a shopper successfully authenticates via one-time verification code, this device is now verified and eligible for automatic login during checkout via device token.
- Unverified device: When a shopper creates a Bolt account during checkout, they do not have to complete authentication via one-time verification code, so this device is considered unverified. Logging in during checkout on another device forces logout on this unverified device to protect shoppers' personal data.
This feature is not currently available to merchants who use SSO.
