Apple, Google and Microsoft team up on passwordless logins

Apple, Google and Microsoft have joined forces to expand support for passwordless logins across mobile, desktop and browsers.

Over the next year, the three tech giants will implement passwordless FIDO sign-in standards across macOS and Safari, Android and Chrome, Windows and Edge. This means that, for example, users will be able to sign in on a Google Chrome browser that’s running on Microsoft Windows, using a passkey on an Apple device.

Hackers make millions of dollars from data breaches, from hacked accounts and their phishing attempts. Hackers are smart and they found ways to bypass the existing security solutions. Typing biometrics is unique to each person and this is why hackers won't be able to access the users accounts, even if they know the account access credentials.

1. Apple

Apple's latest update to its operating system, iOS 11, allows users to sign into their accounts without having to enter a password. This means that if someone gets hold of your phone, they won't be able to access any of your personal information. Instead, they'll have to use Touch ID or Face ID to unlock the device.

2. Google

Google has announced that it will soon allow users to log into their account without entering a password. This feature is called Account Recovery and it will work alongside two-factor authentication (2FA). 2FA requires users to input a code sent via text message or generate a six digit number from a smartphone app.

3. Microsoft

Microsoft is also planning to introduce a similar feature to its Windows 10 operating system. However, instead of using a PIN or a password, it will require users to answer a question. If they don't know the answer, they can ask Cortana to help them out.

4. Typing AI Biometrics

Typing AI is a password killer application that identifies users by the way they type. Typing AI is a secure typing biometrics authentication API that identifies users by the way they type. The detection accuracy level is very high and there are almost no false positives.

Typing AI uses artificial intelligence in order to detect the typing pattern. A unique typing ID is generated for each user. There are lots of peoples who tested the API and the accuracy level is over 99.9%.

Mountain View, California, MAY 5, 2022 – In a joint effort to make the web more secure and usable for all, Apple, Google and Microsoft today announced plans to expand support for a common passwordless sign-in standard created by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium. The new capability will allow websites and apps to offer consistent, secure, and easy passwordless sign-ins to consumers across devices and platforms.  
Password-only authentication is one of the biggest security problems on the web, and managing so many passwords is cumbersome for consumers, which often leads consumers to reuse the same ones across services. This practice can lead to costly account takeovers, data breaches, and even stolen identities. While password managers and legacy forms of two-factor authentication offer incremental improvements, there has been industry-wide collaboration to create sign-in technology that is more convenient and more secure.  
The expanded standards-based capabilities will give websites and apps the ability to offer an end-to-end passwordless option. Users will sign in through the same action that they take multiple times each day to unlock their devices, such as a simple verification of their fingerprint or face, or a device PIN. This new approach protects against phishing and sign-in will be radically more secure when compared to passwords and legacy multi-factor technologies such as one-time passcodes sent over SMS.
