Leading password manager, 1Password, has unveiled its highly anticipated public beta for passkeys, an advanced login technology that aims to replace traditional passwords with device-based authentication systems.

Starting today, 1Password users can create, store, and share passkeys for supported websites by installing the 1Password beta browser extension for popular browsers like Chrome, Edge, Safari, Firefox, and Brave.

The introduction of passkey marks a significant change in the way users access their online accounts. Instead of relying on complex passwords, users can now use authentication systems built into their devices, providing easier and more secure logins.

Passkeys can be created for websites and services that have implemented passkey support, and 1Password maintains a list of platforms where passkeys can be used. Furthermore, users can vote for their desired sites and services to receive passkey support, potentially influencing companies to adopt this innovative login method.

Although today's release focuses on passkey integration with web browsers, the full range of passkey features is yet to come. Mobile passkey support is currently under development for 1Password's iOS and Android apps and is expected to launch in the near future.

Additionally, the ability to replace the 1Password master password with a passkey is scheduled to be released next month.
