The new Google Passkey feature has been rolled out that allows users to login to any website on Android or Chrome without a password.
The new Google Passkey feature for Android and Chrome has been rolled out to make password verification simple and secure. It has been rolled out to developers for now. Most users will probably get it by the end of the year. Passkeys are a more secure alternative to passwords and other forms of authentication. “They are non-reusable, do not leak in server breaches, and protect users from phishing attacks,” Google said in one of its blog posts. Passkeys are built in different operating systems and browsers. It can be used for websites as well as apps, and is therefore compatible with Windows, macOS and iOS and ChromeOS.
As shared by Google, creating password on Android or Google Chrome requires confirmation and authentication by using the same via Face ID, Fingerprint or other modes. When you sign up, you can use one of these ways to verify your identity. You can manage these passkeys through Google Password Manager. The best thing about these passkeys is that they are automatically backed up to the cloud and can be easily recovered if you lose your phone or get logged out. Know how to log in to Google Android or Google Chrome using these passkeys.

Step 2: Now verify it with fingerprint, face ID or screen lock when prompted instead of a password.
Step 3: For developers or end users, confirm the passkey account information and complete authentication using fingerprint, face, or screen lock when prompted.
Sign in to a site using a browser on a computer with a passkey or on an Android device
Google’s blog post states that an Android user can log in to a website with a password via Safari on a Mac, or a Chrome user can log in to Windows with a password stored on their iOS device or Google Chrome cloud.
However, the feature is currently only available to developers. The tech giant also plans to roll out features for regular users later this year.
