Introducing Multi-device FIDO Credentials
Accelerating the Availability of Simpler, Stronger Passwordless Sign-Ins
Passwords are a problem.
Common legacy authentication solutions don’t address the security problem and/or are not usable enough to change consumer behavior.
FIDO Authentication is the world’s answer to the password problem.
FIDO Authentication provides a simpler user experience with phishing-resistant security.
Improving access and usability for FIDO Authentication
With the introduction of multi-device FIDO credentials (referred to by some as a “passkey”), there’s a new option for users to access their FIDO sign-in credentials on many of their devices, even new ones, without having to re-enroll every device on every account.
Say hello to multi-device FIDO credentials!
A FIDO credential that is backed up (usually to the user’s platform account; e.g., Google Account or AppleID), allowing users to restore the credential to, and use it from, another device. From a user experience standpoint, this will be very similar to how one interacts with a password manager today to help them securely enroll and sign into websites – only it will be far more secure. For service providers, this expands the range of options for deploying modern, phishing-resistant authentication.
