What are Passkeys?

1 min. readlast update: 04.25.2024

Passkeys are a modern alternative to traditional passwords. Instead of creating and remembering complex passwords for each account, you can use a passkey to securely sign in with just a fingerprint, face recognition, or a device PIN.

Passkeys are more secure because they are unique for each account and website, and they never leave your device. This means that even if a website gets hacked, your accounts stay safe.

To use passkeys, you need a compatible device (such as a smartphone, tablet, or computer) and an account with a service that supports passkeys. When you sign in, you'll be asked to authenticate with your device's built-in security features, like Touch ID or Face ID.

Passkeys make signing in faster, easier, and more secure. Plus, you don't have to worry about remembering or managing multiple complex passwords anymore
