arrow_back A Simple Passwordless Login link Generator for Laravel

Laravel Passwordless Login is an excellent package that provides a temporary signed route that logs in a user. It does not offer a way of sending the link to the route to the user. This is because It doesn’t want to make any assumptions about how you communicate with your users.


You can install this package via composer by running this command.

composer require grosv/laravel-passwordless-login

Simple Usage

This is a very simple usage example.

use App\User;
use Grosv\LaravelPasswordlessLogin\LoginUrl;

function sendLoginLink()
    $user = User::find(1);

    $generator = new LoginUrl($user);
    $generator->setRedirectUrl('/somewhere/else'); // Override the default url to redirect to after login
    $url = $generator->generate();

    //OR Use a Facade
    $url = PasswordlessLogin::forUser($user)->generate();

    // Send $url in an email or text message to your user

Using A Trait

Because some sites have more than one user-type model (users, admins, etc.), you can use a trait to set up the default configurations for each user type. The methods below are provided by the trait, so you only need to include the ones for which you want to use a different value.

use Grosv\LaravelPasswordlessLogin\Traits\PasswordlessLogin;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use PasswordlessLogin;

    public function getGuardNameAttribute(): string 
        return config('laravel-passwordless-login.user_guard');
    public function getShouldRememberLoginAttribute(): bool
        return config('laravel-passwordless-login.remember_login');

    public function getLoginRouteExpiresInAttribute(): int
        return config('laravel-passwordless-login.login_route_expires');

    public function getRedirectUrlAttribute(): string
        return config('laravel-passwordless-login.redirect_on_success');

If you are using the PasswordlessLogin Trait, you can generate a link using the defaults defined in the trait by simply calling createPasswordlessLoginLink() on the user you want to log in.

The biggest mistake I could see someone making with this package is creating a login link for one user and sending it to another. Please be careful and test your code. I don’t want anyone getting mad at me for someone else’s


You can publish the config file or just set the values you want to use in your .env file:
