1Password reveals that customers will soon be able to use passkeys to unlock the software to access all of their passwords.

Passwords will disappear permanently

On June 7 of this year, the company announced support for passkeys in a beta version of the popular software for third-party services and applications:

“The company is the FIDO Alliance, an organization that cares about open sign-in standards. You may have noticed that Google has rolled out passkeys for Google accounts and services that use Google Sign-in. That way, you can only approve sign-ins to services with your finger or face if the device is approved as an authentication device.”

Now 1Password takes it even further, and will make it easy to unlock the program, with just a passkey – mao.: You’ll be able to unlock all passwords stored in the app with your finger, eye scan, or with a PIN instead of hard-to-remember passwords.

You’ll be able to open with your passport key this fall

1Password users will be able to use passkeys to unlock the program later this year, after the launch of iOS 17, i.e. sometime in September or October.

9To5Mac tested the feature, which they described as “extremely smooth”. According to Apple’s blog, it was explained that users will be required to use a passkey, after which one just needs to verify with FaceID, TouchID, or other biometrics depending on the device being used.

“Then, the app will assign a password key to the vault. Then when you need to sign in to a new device, you don’t have to worry about remembering your password. Simply use Face ID or Touch ID to authenticate with the password. If you try to sign in on another device where your password isn’t saved, it’s possible to scan a QR code on your iPhone or iPad to authenticate,” they write.
