Passkey Authentication 101: What Developers Should Know About Passkeys

Google and Apple have recently implemented passkey authentication technology, in an industry collected effort to make life easier and more secure for users. -Let me repeat… Apple and Google are agreeing on something. The whole world needs to celebrate and restart their pacemakers.

With these recent well-known adopters, it is safe to say that app developers need to have both iOS and Android passkeys implemented quickly, before their users turn up the heat and demand support. Websites and servers that support both iOS and Android clients have more motivation to adopt passkeys, since the credentials will have the same requirements for servers.
