Biometric Update: Passwordless Authentication Rising with FIDO and Biometrics Tackling Security Risks

Passwordless authentication technologies, and particularly physical tokens, some of which are secured with biometrics, are on the rise, according to a new report by passwordless technology company HYPR and Cybersecurity Insiders. Among MFA authentication adopters, 36 percent of those surveyed said they were using smartphones as FIDO tokens, 17 percent hardware security keys like Yubico’s Yubikey, some of which include biometrics, and 17 percent built-in authenticators such as Windows Hello, which also support biometrics.
