Google Chrome introduces passwordless secure login through passkeys

The American tech giant Google has now made password keys available to Chrome users. After a testing period that started in October, the company added the standard passwordless secure login to Chrome Stable M108 this week.

According to The Verge, an American technology news website, passkeys work with Chrome on both desktop and mobile with Windows 11, macOS and Android.

In addition, Google allows users to sync their password keys from Android to other devices using the company’s own password manager or a compatible third-party password manager such as 1Password or Dashlane.

A passkey is a unique identity stored on your computer, phone, or other devices, such as a USB security key.

According to The Verge, websites or applications that have implemented the passkey API can let users log in through a simple and quick confirmation combined with your device’s biometrics or other secure authentication.

Passkeys are great for security because there is no password involved that can be leaked. Since all major tech companies like Apple, Google, and Microsoft are collaborating in adopting the technology, the experience should become device-agnostic, according to the outlet.
