Apps like KAYAK and CardPointers have already updated their iOS apps to support the new passwordless sign-in technique.
How does it work?
Passkey is one of the most popular iOS 16 offerings. It is a new authentication method that comes to replace traditional passwords. It was established in partnership with Apple, Google, and Microsoft, according to the FIDO Standard.
Rather than creating a traditional password that can be easily guessed or leaked, a Passkey is a unique credential locally on your device that requires biometric authentication to be obtained. It is more difficult for attackers to gain access to these keys.
In iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura, passwords are synchronized between the devices of the same user via iCloud. If you need to log into that app or website via another platform, you may also generate a QR Code of the unique key on your device to authorize a new one.
Apps and websites that already work with Passkeys
KAYAK, a popular travel app, is one of the first iOS apps to support Passkeys. With the most recent version of the app, users can easily sign up using just Face ID or Touch ID without the need for a traditional password. You just enter your email and the system does everything else.
The iOS app available for free on the App Store. Along with KAYAK, Best Buy, eBay, CardPointers, and WordPress.com have already teamed up with the new Passkey feature. Do you know any other applications that already use Passkeys? Let us know in the comments below.
