Google has announced the implementation of support for the system of private keys or ‘passkeys’ in the stable version of Chrome 108, which will allow you to sign in without having to resort to passwords in supported services and applications.

Private keys are presented as a more secure alternative to passwords, since they are based on biometric recognition (of the face or fingerprint), which is linked to the user’s personal account and allows your synchronization between devices. To log in, you just have to authenticate yourself in the same way that the mobile device is unlocked.

Support for the ‘passkey’ system is available in the latest version of Chrome (v108), and allows the use of these private keys on Windows 11, macOS and Androidas Google reports on the Chromium blog.

In the Android mobile, the private keys will be stored securely in Google Password Manager or a similar service that also admits them. When the user logs into a compatible website or application, the request to enter either a password or the ‘passkey’ will be displayed.

on a computer, the ‘smartphone’ will work as secondary equipment to confirm the login, in this case with a passkey, and will also admit an Android or iOS mobile.
