“What are passkeys? A passkey is a digital credential, tied to a user account and a website or application. Passkeys allow users to authenticate without having to enter a username, password, or provide any additional authentication factor. This technology aims to replace legacy authentication mechanisms such as passwords.”
Using passkeys instead of passwords is a great way for websites to make their user accounts safer, simpler, easier to use and passwordless. With a passkey, a user can sign in to a website or an app just by using their fingerprint, face or device PIN.
