“You’re giving me the ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘it’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them not me; if it’s anybody, it’s me.”

Can We Finally Forget Our Passwords?

Most people have heard of passkeys by now, they are about to take over traditional passwords. Passkeys will make logging into online accounts more secure. This is a big step in the right direction for online security and is quickly becoming very popular among the big names in tech.

This new tech has long been supported by the FIDO alliance – an organization of big tech companies including Apple, Google, and Microsoft – with the goal of eliminating the need for passwords altogether. These big tech giants are already rolling out passkey on some of their applications. As big players in online security password management software are also getting in on the action and this will likely speed things up even quicker.

Passkeys create and store credentials on your phone that only YOU can access. These are called private keys and they're authenticated by the biometrics you use to log in to that device, your fingerprint, or your phone’s facial recognition system. When you log into an account, the website generates a public key which will then request a private key for authentication. Your matching passkey gives you access to your account, just like a password. Making it a much safer and more secure way to log in!

We’ve spent years implementing solid passwords. But will we miss them when they’re gone? Probably not… any move towards stronger security is always welcome and we don’t think it will be too long before most online accounts are using passkeys.

Get in touch if you’d like any help to keep your business secure in 2023.

Until next time, keep fit and have fun!

(TYYV) The Yada Yada Version:

Passkeys are about to become the new thing and yada yada yada so long passwords!
