Passkeys are a new technology that promises to eliminate passwords using a two-fold approach. First, the user is authenticated using a fingerprint, Face ID, or device PIN. Second, instead of validating a password, the exchange between the server and the device uses very strong public and private key cryptography, making it impervious to hacking.
Currently, there are only a few websites and apps that support passkeys but hopefully, it will become the norm before very long. The combination of an easier user experience and a vastly more secure login should provide a lot of incentive.
Setting up passkeys takes a little work and is not really for the faint of heart, but if you're intrigued enough to try, these links will help you get started.
