Approaching passwordless login, is there trust?

Regardless of if you know how a system like this works, would you trust a limited access passwordless login for a trusted device?

I'm not sure if I get what you mean. For example: my phone is the trusted device, such that I can login to a certain website without entering my password? How do I register my phone as trusted? And Isn't that kinda the same as using cookies to keep users logged in?

The other passwordless login option that I know is you get sent an email where you can verify it's you and login that way.

I am currently working on a mobile app in React Native and i went with social media logins thru FB, Google, and Apple and that way the user doesn't need to create an account for us specifically. We don't even give the option to sign up via email, it also saves us money and effort in protecting users info in our db.

I'm doing the same but also offering local login where a subset of features are allowed, it's basically registration but you feel as if you are in your profile a lot quicker. To actually. Do anything really useful like update address and card details you need to oauth login.
