Google Begins Rolling Out Support for Passkeys

Posted May 3, 2023 at 3:37pm by iClarified
Google has begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc.

Passkeys are a new way to sign in to apps and websites. They're both easier to use and more secure than passwords, so users no longer need to rely on the names of pets, birthdays or the infamous "password123." Instead, passkeys let users sign in to apps and sites the same way they unlock their devices: with a fingerprint, a face scan or a screen lock PIN. And, unlike passwords, passkeys are resistant to online attacks like phishing, making them more secure than things like SMS one-time codes.

Passkeys for Google Accounts are available starting today. You can try them out here. For Google Workspace accounts, administrators will soon have the option to enable passkeys for their end-users during sign-in.
