As Dashlane puts it, “Passkeys are phishing-resistant credentials based on FIDO standards and are the future of online authentication, designed as a more secure and user-friendly replacement for passwords.” FIDO is the alliance that sets the standards for passwordless technologies, and passkeys need to comply with its WebAuthn specifications. It has the backing of all the big tech players – Apple, Google, Microsoft, Meta, Amazon and so on.
