Google is making plans to eliminate the need for passwords for logging into online services in the coming years. The company’s vision is to make the online world safer for its users, and after successfully testing the passwordless technique for logging into Android devices, is now planning to introduce it to other platforms, including the web and iOS. This means users can log in with just their fingerprint, face recognition, or a single tap on their phone. The technology behind this is called FIDO2, which uses hardware keys to authenticate identity, making it difficult for anyone to hack into users’ accounts. This move highlights a growing trend in the industry towards passwordless systems for improved cybersecurity.
