Earlier this year, Apple joined the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) alliance to support passwordless authentication. Now, here’s the first big announcement related to this development: the upcoming Safari 14 will support passwordless authentication. Apple made this announcement at a session during its developer conference WWDC.
Now you’ll be able to sign in to websites on Safari using your iPhone‘s Face ID or Touch ID. Additionally, you can use hardware security keys that support FIDO standards for authentication as well. One example is Yubikey, which offers a dual-connector authenticator with lightning and USB-C support.
