1Password customers are finally gaining partial access to the passwordless future we’ve been promised. Starting from June 6th this year, anyone with a 1Password account will be able to use it to save and manage their passkeys — a biometric-based login technology that allows users to ditch passwords in favor of their device’s own authentication. To access the open beta, you’ll need to download the 1Password beta browser extension for Safari, Firefox, or Chromium-based browsers (which include Chrome, Edge, Arc, and Brave). Support for passkeys on mobile is still in development and unavailable at this time.
