Google Chrome Adds Support For Passcodes To Galaxy Smartphones, Tablets, And Laptops

After announcing the feature in October, Google is now rolling out passkey support for Chrome’s latest stable release (version 108). Passkey functionality is coming to Android, macOS, and Windows 11. This allows users of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone and Galaxy Book to sign into websites using the same method they use to unlock their devices.

Passkeys will be synchronized with Google Password Manager and other Android-based credential managers. Once a website’s credentials have been saved, they will appear in the autofill fields on the sign-in page. Passkeys are based on industry standards and are compatible with a variety of platforms and ecosystems. Additionally, passkey can be used on websites and apps.

You can “choose to use a passkey from your nearby mobile device” to use a passkey on your desktop device. That is, either an Android or iOS device can be used. Google explains the increased security level of the passkey by stating that “only a securely generated code is exchanged with the website, so unlike a password, nothing can be leaked.”

You will be able to manage your passkeys on the Windows and macOS versions of Google Chrome. Developers must implement WebAuthn API passkey support on their websites for passkeys to function. Google stated in its official blog that the team is also developing passkey support for iOS and Chromebooks and that widespread adoption of the technology will take time.
