Passkey Support Rolls Out To Chrome Stable – Slashdot


An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Following Google’s beta rollout of the feature in October, passkeys are now hitting Chrome stable M108. “Passkey” is built on industry standards and backed by all the big platform vendors — Google, Apple, Microsoft — along with the FIDO Alliance. Google’s latest blog says: “With the latest version of Chrome, we’re enabling passkeys on Windows 11, macOS, and Android.” The Google Password Manager on Android is ready to sync all your passkeys to the cloud, and if you can meet all the hardware requirements and find a supporting service, you can now sign-in to something with a passkey. […]

Now that this is actually up and running on Chrome 108 and a supported OS, you should be able to see the passkey screen under the “autofill” section of the Chrome settings (or try pasting chrome://settings/passkeys into the address bar). Next up we’ll need more websites and services to actually support using a passkey instead of a password to sign in. Google Account support would be a good first step — right now you can use a passkey for two-factor authentication with Google, but you can’t replace your password yet. Everyone’s go-to example of passkeys is the passkeys.io demo site, which we have a walkthrough of here.
