Google has taken a major step toward a "passwordless future" by rolling out passkeys for the first time.

Passkeys are a more secure and easier way to sign in to apps and websites, using a fingerprint, face scan, or screen lock PIN instead of relying on passwords.

The new sign-in option is resistant to phishing and other online attacks and is available to Google Account users who want to try a passwordless experience.

Services like Kayak, PayPal, and Yahoo! Japan have already deployed passkeys to streamline sign-in for their users, and administrators of Google Workspace accounts will soon have the option to enable passkeys for their end-users during sign-in.

While passwords and 2-Step Verification will still work for Google Accounts, passkeys represent a significant step toward a future where passwords are no longer necessary.
