Google showed Passkeys technology in action. She will change passwords

Google introduced a new passwordless authorization technology, and also showed how it will work on Android and Chrome. The company has been developing it over the past decade.

A similar standard is already supported by Apple on iOS, macOS and Safari, as well as Microsoft on Windows and Edge. This technology makes it easy to sign in across devices, sites, and apps, regardless of platform, without the need for a password.

How it will work in Chrome and on Android

The Android device will store a special key to decrypt the account in the Chrome browser. Thus, instead of the usual login and password entry for authorization, it will be enough just to unlock your smartphone. Access codes are synchronized via the Google cloud and are updated in case of device change or loss.

According to Google, such a passkey is much more secure. On a PC, the first login will require a smartphone to be nearby for authentication.

The Passkeys technology will reportedly work with all devices running Android 9 and later. It is also worth noting that for the new feature to work, at least once you will have to enter your username and password from your Google account. Also, two-factor authentication must be connected to the account.

Full integration of Passkeys with operating systems and services is expected during 2022 and 2023. According to Google, third-party developers need time to implement a new feature on their side.
