Passwords may be a thing of the past as tech giants are moving to new passkey technology — a passwordless login that is more secure and convenient.

Apple, Google and Microsoft are working with the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to ensure passkeys are implemented in ways that work across multiple platforms.
