Traditionally, passwords have served as the primary means of securing digital identities, yet their limitations are becoming increasingly evident. To pave the way for a passwordless future, accessibility is paramount. Any alternative authentication method must be inclusive, catering to users across diverse technological environments. Whether it’s the latest smartphone or a dated desktop, the authentication process should seamlessly adapt. For example, solutions like the FIDO Alliance’s Web Authentication (WebAuthn) standard aim to bridge this accessibility gap, enabling passwordless logins across a spectrum of devices and platforms.
