TikTok Announces Passkey Support for iOS Devices

Posted July 18, 2023 at 4:33am by iClarified
TikTok has announced that it will soon add Passkey support for iOS devices, joining the FIDO Alliance alongside Apple, Google, Microsoft, and other major tech companies.

Passkeys offer a faster, easier, and more secure way for users to sign into their accounts using Face ID or Touch ID.

Passkeys are password replacements that can confirm your identity based on encrypted biometric authentication methods already available on your device. When you use passkeys, all biometric authentication data remains on your device and cannot be accessed or processed by third party apps, like TikTok. If you are an iOS user, you may already use passkeys on other applications. For your TikTok account, you will now have the option to use passkeys instead of a password to sign into your TikTok account directly from your iCloud account across devices.

"Passwords are a hindrance to security and user experience that are long past their expiration date – which is why the FIDO Alliance has created open standards for passwordless authentication that are being utilized by leading service providers to allow consumers to have easier access to leading online services such as TikTok." - Andrew Shikiar, FIDO Alliance Executive Director.

"We are thrilled to join the FIDO Alliance as we begin to introduce passkeys for login, working with industry leaders to amplify secure passwordless technologies." - @Kim Albarella, TikTok Head of Global Security
