The Stack: With FIDO2, is a passwordless future on the horizon?

Most breaches involve a stolen password or credential, but ironically enough, passwords are still a popular way to protect your online identity. A study conducted by Google revealed that 52% of people reuse the same password for multiple accounts, making it easy for hackers to guess your passwords. Thankfully, there has been a major shift towards a passwordless future with the development of FIDO2 by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). 

By using FIDO2, your smartphone will serve as your identity authenticator and store a passkey with the help of public and private key cryptography.
