The social networking platform X (formerly Twitter) revealed that it plans to support the Passkeys feature, which allows users to log in without having to enter passwords.
The passkeys are a new standard developed in cooperation between the two most major technology companies, FIDO Alliance and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and the feature uses encryption techniques to create a secure link between the user's device and the website or application, and by using it, users will not need to remember or write traditional passwords, or fear that they will be leaked or stolen.
Some application developers have spotted signs and indications in the latest version of the X platform, indicating that the company's developer team is working on adding the passkeys feature soon.
The new feature is available to users as a more secure additional option, and when available, users will be able to log into their accounts using biometric authentication through fingerprints or facial recognition technology.
The passkey feature has also been detected in many applications currently, such as the online recruitment platform LinkedIn, WhatsApp, and TikTok.
It is expected that large technology companies such as Apple, Google, Microsoft and others will join the adoption of this feature in the future to replace traditional passwords. (QNA)
