As reported by PC Mag, Apple previewed a new passwordless login scheme called Passkey at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). Darin Adler, VP of Internet Technologies at Apple, pitched Passkey as “more secure, easier to use, and aims to replace passwords for good.”

Adler described Passkeys this way: “A unique digital key is created that only works for the site it was created for.” Instead of passwords, Apple users would verify their identity using biometric authentication, which is already built into most of the company’s product line with Face ID, for facial recognition, and Touch ID, for fingerprint scanning.
