1Password will launch passkey support in early 2023

1Password has announced that passkey support will be available to its customers “early 2023”, allowing users to securely log in to apps and websites without a password.

FIDO Alliance member 1Password said that “it may take some time” to implement password key support

Passkeys are a passwordless login technology developed by the FIDO Alliance, of which most Big Tech companies are members. The technology enables users to replace traditional passwords with their device’s own authentication – such as an iPhone with Face ID – providing greater security and protection, as there is no password to steal or accidentally hand over via a phishing attack.

1Password claims its own variant, called Universal Sign On, will be superior to others multi-platform support and cross-platform synchronization when it launches next year. Passkey support through companies like Apple, on the other hand, is only built to seamlessly sync access across devices within the same ecosystem.
