Subscribe to release notes, newsletters & product feedback surveys feature would help you to be up to date with the new Chatwoot releases.

Identity Verification for WebWidget

Webwidget supports HMAC verification natively. To disallow impersonation and to keep the conversation with your customers private, we recommend setting up the identity validation in Chatwoot. Identity validation is enabled by generating an HMAC(hash based message authentication code) based on the identifier attribute, using SHA256. Along with the identifier you can pass identifier_hash also as shown below to make sure that the user is correct one.
