Google adds PassKey on Chrome

Google adds PassKey on Chrome

Google rolled out Passkey support to Chrome Canary – the beta version of Chrome that lets advanced users experiment with new features back in October. Now, the company’s announced that the latest stable version of Chrome (v108) is getting it as well.

Google’s latest blog says: “With the latest version of Chrome, we’re enabling passkeys on Windows 11, macOS, and Android.” Meanwhile, on desktop, you can choose to use a passkey from your nearby mobile device, which can be both iOS and Android.

If the passkey update has reached your device, Chrome will ask if you want to use a passkey to login to a supported site or stick with passwords. The former will require screen lock authentication – fingerprint or facial unlock. Passkeys are next step in evolution of secure logins.
