Apple has given a name to its password-free account security solution: Passkeys. With Passkeys, users can log in to web sites and apps without remembering or entering a password. Users log in with biometric authentication such as FaceID or TouchID. A user's Passkeys are automatically synced across Apple devices using Keychain. Passkeys can also be used on non-Apple devices thanks to Apple's use of open industry standards and cooperation with the FIDO Alliance. Google and Microsoft are also working to make this technology standard across the industry.
