Password Security is a major issue for operators and users of the website and its many applications. Among the complicated problems still efficiently addressed is identity authorization. Normal user uses text passwords for authentication which select while registering accounts on a website. If a user selects a weak password and uses that among different websites causes domino effect. The proposed system is a OTP user authentication protocol which leverages a user’s cell phone and Web service to resist password stealing, password reuse and collision attacks. Through our system users only need to remember a long term password for login on all websites. It uses one time password strategy. SWAP (Secure Web Authentication Protocol) is efficient and affordable compared with the conventional web authentication mechanism. The design principle is to eliminate the negative influence of human factor as much as possible. It only requires each participating website possess a unique phone number and involves a registration and a recovery phase.
