Apple is set to make things simple for its users, and now a new feature announced during the developer session allows you to log in to websites only with a face ID or touch ID without passwords, reported by TNW News.
A new feature was introduced in a developer session called “Move Beyond Passwords”
The Developer Session is part of the WWDC 2021 program and introduces new technology to make the user experience more intuitive while ensuring security. The new technology is called Passkeys and allows you to register for services and websites without a password. Of course, the website needs to support this new technology, and when you enter the username you choose during the sign-up process, you can use Face ID or Touch ID to authenticate yourself.
The iPhone, iPad, and Mac will have this technology in a preview later this year and will be disabled by default.
Passwords are part of the iCloud keychain, which provides a secure method for authentication while protecting against phishing attacks. However, if you’re using non-Apple devices, you may still need to use passwords.
