Password management tool 1Password in the last year after joining the FIDO Alliance, today released a public beta version, announced to open the user pass key (Passkey) support.
According to the blog post, the public beta version of 1Password is available for the following browsers:
- Chrome (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
- Firefox (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
- Edge (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
- Brave (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
- Safari (macOS)
The 1Password app for Mac, iOS, Windows, Android, and Linux has also been updated to allow users to view, edit, move, share, and delete Passkeys created with 1Password.
Passkey allows users to log in to apps and websites as if they were unlocking their device: by fingerprint, face scan or screen lock PIN. And, unlike passwords, Passkeys are resistant to online attacks like phishing, which makes them more secure than one-time SMS verification codes.
