Ars Technica: Apple, Google, and Microsoft want to kill the password with “Passkey” standard

Ars Technica: Apple, Google, and Microsoft want to kill the password with “Passkey” standard. “The standard is being called either a ‘multi-device FIDO credential’ or just a ‘passkey.’ Instead of a long string of characters, this new scheme would have the app or website you’re logging in to push a request to your phone for authentication. From there, you’d need to unlock the phone, authenticate with some kind of pin or biometric, and then you’re on your way.”
