What is FIDO?
FIDO Authentication is the answer to the password problem.
FIDO Authentication is the answer to the global password problem
Passwords, and other forms of legacy authentication such as SMS OTPs, are knowledge-based, a hassle to remember, and are easy to phish, harvest and replay.
Passwords are the root cause of over 80% of data breaches.
Users have more than 90 online accounts.
Average help desk labor cost for a single password reset is $70
Up to 51% of passwords are reused.
FIDO Authentication, developed by the FIDO Alliance, is a global authentication standard based on public key cryptography.
FIDO Authentication provides a simpler user experience with phishing-resistant security
With FIDO Authentication, users sign in with phishing resistant credentials, called passkeys. Passkeys can be synced across devices or bound to a platform or security key and enable password-only logins to be replaced with secure and fast login experiences across websites and apps.
Passkeys are more secure than passwords and SMS OTPs, simpler for consumers to use, and easier for service providers to deploy and manage.
FIDO allows users to simply sign in with passkeys across their devices with a biometric or a security key
