Exploring the Future of Digital Identity
As FIDO explains passkeys are a replacement for passwords that provide faster, easier, and more secure sign-ins to websites and apps across a user’s devices. Unlike passwords, passkeys are always strong and phishing-resistant.
A passkey can meet multifactor authentication requirements in a single step, replacing both a password and OTP.
Streamlined User Experience
A passkey contains the user's username and display name, so the browser or OS can display a selector for the user to pick an account to sign-in with, then unlock the screen to verify.
Developers can integrate their applications and web sites with Passkeys to deliver a better user experience while also improving security.
