Is it possible to perform step up authentication with out user credentials?

I have an app that uses universal login, that means that users do not enter their credentials in the app for login. I wanna perform step up authentication for certain operations, but due to universal login, I don’t have the user credentials in the app, so I am looking for a passwordless approach to challenge the user with step up authentication without the user having to enter again his credential in each step up flow.

Hi @kevin_herrera_vega,

Thanks for reaching out to the Auth0 Community!

Just to confirm, while your application doesn’t have direct access to the user’s credentials it is receiving an access and/or id token after the user successfully authenticates, correct? If so you should certainly be able to add step-up authentication and I’ve added a link below to the docs that cover setting up step-up auth for API’s and web apps:

I hope this helps!
