Apple in July this year by updating the form of browser extensions, allowing the Mac version of Chrome to access the iCloud Keychain passwords; and in the upcoming Chrome 118 version, allowing access to the Passkey stored in the iCloud Keychain.
Chrome for Mac currently only allows access to third-party account Passkeys stored in Google Password Manager, but in Beta Chrome 118, users can log in to websites using any Passkey stored and synchronized to iCloud Keychain.
In Beta Chrome 118, users visiting the chrome://password-manager/settings page will be presented with the option to “Use passkeys across your Apple devices”
- When this option is enabled, passkeys created in iCloud Keychain can be accessed and used on the user’s current Apple device.
- When this option is disabled, Passkeys created under the Chrome account on the current device are accessible.
When the user logs into the page using the Passkey created in iCloud Keychain, a prompt will pop up indicating that a Touch ID is required to confirm to continue to the next step.
Passkey needs to be on macOS 13.5 and higher to be able to use. chrome 118 stable version is expected to be officially released in early October this year.
A passkey is a digital credential used as a method of authentication for websites or applications. Key standards are a form of passwordless authentication, promoted by the World Wide Web Consortium and the FIDO Alliance. They are typically stored by an operating system or web browser and synchronized between devices from the same ecosystem using the cloud, but they can also be limited to a single device, such as a physical security key. Cryptographic keys are designed to be more convenient and phishing-resistant than traditional authentication methods.
