1Passwords Launches Beta Support for Passkeys

Posted June 7, 2023 at 1:53pm by iClarified
1Password, the popular password manager, has announced the release of new public betas that support passkeys.

Introduced by the FIDO Alliance, passkeys are a new kind of login credential that entirely replaces passwords. Passkeys don't need to be memorized, there's no such thing as a "weak" passkey, and they can't be stolen in a data breach. These passwordless login credentials also speed up the process of signing in to your online accounts with research by Google showing that signing in with a password takes twice as long as a passkey login.

1Password beta extensions cover the following browsers:
● Chrome (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
● Firefox (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
● Edge (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
● Brave (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
● Safari (macOS)

Additionally, 1Password for Mac, iOS, Windows, Android, and Linux have also been updated so you can view, edit, move, share, and delete any passkey you've created using 1Password.

The company has shared a few reasons why you should start using passkeys:

● Signing in with a passkey is fast and convenient. Unlike traditional passwords, there's nothing to type out or memorize. You simply open the website you want to sign in to, find the sign in page or button, and let 1Password handle the rest.

● Passkeys are secure. Behind the scenes, every passkey has two parts, and only one of them is shared with the website you're signing in to. You need both parts of a passkey to authenticate, which means no-one can access your online accounts unless they have physical access to your devices – and a way to unlock them.

● You can sync your passkeys between devices. Other solutions may lock your passkey to a specific device or only support syncing within a specific ecosystem. 1Password lets you use your passkeys on any device and any major browser.

● Saving passkeys in 1Password will keep your digital life organized. Store your passkeys, passwords and other sensitive information in one secure and convenient place. That way, you know that everything you need is always at your fingertips in 1Password. You can also organize your passkeys with vaults, tags, and more!

● 1Password remembers where you've chosen to use passkeys. Signing in can be overwhelming when you use a variety of passkeys, passwords, SSO, and 'sign in with' services. 1Password will sign you in with the correct credentials every time, regardless of the website and login method.

● You'll know when it's possible to secure your accounts with passkeys. In the latest 1Password beta apps, Watchtower will tell you when a website that you use has added passkey support.

● You can share your passkeys. Need to give a co-worker or family member access to one of your passkey-protected accounts? Just put the passkey in a shared vault, or give them access via item sharing.
