  • Apple has begun testing passkeys, a new authentication technology it says are as easy to use as passwords but vastly more secure.
  • To set up an account on a website or app using a passkey, you first choose a username for the new account, then use FaceID or Touch ID to confirm that it’s really you who’s using the device.
  • Passkeys are the latest example of growing interest in passwordless logon technology that’s designed to be more secure than the list of passwords you’ve taped to the side of your monitor.
