The W3C standards group has certified WebAuthn as an official web standard. WebAuthn enables web site logins that are both easier and more secure than passwords. Multiple authentication methods are supported, including biometric options on mobile devices, such as fingerprint readers. It's already supported in Android, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and the preview version of Apple Safari. The standard enables biometric web site login on both desktop and mobile browsers, and also enables using your phone as an authentication tool to log into web sites on a desktop/laptop.
