Both the web browser and the application for mobile devices will have support for this tool. Googlewhich seeks to simplify logins on any platform.

“’Passkeys’ are a significantly more secure replacement for passwords and other phishing authentication factors. They cannot be reused, do not leak on server breaches, and protect users from phishing attacks.

The support of the password for developers on Android and Chrome will enable key capabilities for cross-platform passwordless logins, including:

– Allow users to create and use access keys (passkeys) on Android devices (securely synced via Google Password Manager)

– Let developers add support access keys (passkeys) on your websites with Chrome using the WebAuthn API, on Android and other platforms.

The passkeys make backup copies and synchronize with the cloud to prevent lockouts if the device on which they were generated is lost, and can be used to sign in to websites on an Android device or to sign in to websites on another device.
