In October 2022, Google began adding Passkey support to its Android OS and its Chrome web browser in beta form or, in the case of Chrome, on its Canary channel. Today, a day before World Password Day, Google announced that it is now rolling out support for PassKey to sign in to your Google Account.
In a blog postGoogle said:
Passkeys are a new way to sign in to apps and websites. Both are easier to use and more secure than passwords, so users no longer have to rely on pet names, birthdays or the infamous “password123”. Instead, Passkeys let users sign in to apps and sites the same way they unlock their devices: with a fingerprint, face scan or screen lock pin. And, unlike passwords, passkeys are resistant to online attacks like phishing, making them more secure than things like SMS one-time codes.
Password support is an option for Google accounts in addition to regular passwords and 2-step verification. You can set up your pass on your account. By visiting this page. Administrators who set up Google Accounts for employees will also soon be able to set up passkeys for those workers.
