1Password Brings Public Passkeys to Your Browser​

1Password, the popular password manager, has announced the public beta of its new passkey feature. Passkeys are a new login standard that promises to be more secure and easier to use than traditional passwords.

What are passkeys?
Passkeys are a new way to sign in to websites and apps. They are based on the Web Authentication (WebAuthn) standard, which is supported by all major browsers and operating systems. Passkeys are stored on your device and are never stored by 1Password or any other website. This makes them much more secure than traditional passwords, which are often stored on websites in plaintext.

How do passkeys work?
When you sign in to a website or app that supports passkeys, you will be prompted to use your fingerprint or face ID to authenticate. This is much faster and easier than typing in a long, complex password.
1Password will automatically generate a passkey for you when you sign in to a website or app for the first time. You can also manually create passkeys for websites and apps that do not support them.

Why should I use passkeys?
There are several reasons why you should use passkeys:
  • They are more secure. Passkeys are stored on your device and are never stored by 1Password or any other website. This makes them much more secure than traditional passwords, which are often stored on websites in plaintext.
  • They are easier to use. When you sign in to a website or app that supports passkeys, you will be prompted to use your fingerprint or face ID to authenticate. This is much faster and easier than typing in a long, complex password.
  • They are supported by all major browsers and operating systems. Passkeys are supported by all major browsers and operating systems, including Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, and Brave. This means that you can use them on any device.
How can I get started with passkeys?

Once you have enabled the passkey beta, you can use passkeys to sign in to websites and apps. When you visit a website or app that supports passkeys, you will be prompted to use your fingerprint or face ID to authenticate. This is much faster and easier than typing in a long, complex password.
