A Future Without Passwords: The Bet Of Google, Apple And Microsoft

This new private key will be synced across all devices

Technology companies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft have announced their support for the common password-less login standard, which will facilitate access to digital services securely without having to enter one of these passwords.

The Common Passwordless Login Standard, created by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), is a new approach to login that protects against phishing, a major password threat. Unlike passwords and multi-factor systems, it will allow you to authenticate access to a digital service with a verification of your fingerprint or face or by entering a PIN on the device.

This approach puts the device at the center of the new secure way of signing in; It links a private key with the user's personal account and allows it to be synchronized between devices for use on the web.

This system is also known as "access key" and is already supported by iOS, in the second beta of version 15.5, and by Google , in a version not yet final of Google Play Services (version 22.15. 14).

Now, and officially, Apple, Google and Microsoft have communicated their support for this technology, as reflected in a joint statement, and these new capabilities are expected to be available on the platforms of the three companies in the course of the next year.
