Passkeys — an easier and more secure alternative to passwords — took a big step forward this week as Google made them the default way to log in to a personal Google account. Passkeys let you log in to a service the same way you unlock your phone: with a fingerprint, face scan, or pin on your phone. Users can opt out, but will be encouraged to use passkeys with a new option described as "Skip password when possible" or "Simplify your sign-in". Other services adding support for passkeys include Uber and eBay, and soon, WhatsApp.
