Embracing the Passwordless Revolution: Google's Passkeys and the Future of Authentication

Last week, Google made a groundbreaking announcement: the release of passkeys for all Google account holders. This means that over 1 billion users can now sign into their accounts with just a single tap on their device, no password or two-factor authentication required. Read Google's announcement here.

So why is this development such a significant stride towards a passwordless future?

Adoption: As users become accustomed to the seamless and secure experience of signing in with passkeys, they will expect this level of convenience and security from every digital brand they interact with.

When considering how to best deploy or implement passkeys, it's essential to remember that Google isn't the only major tech player in this field. Both Apple and Microsoft have shown support for creating an easier and more secure alternative to passwords for their devices. This raises a critical question: how can organizations deploy passkeys in a way that accommodates all devices and platforms across every aspect of the customer's digital journey?
