What is Google Passkey?
Google Passkey is a unique, device-specific key that uses on-device authentication like fingerprint, face, or PIN to sign in to your Google account. You don't need to remember or enter a password when using Google Passkey, just confirm your identity on the device and you're done.
Google Passkey It differs from traditional passwords and two-factor verification in that it does not rely on a string of characters or a verification code sent via SMS or email. Instead, it uses an encryption key that is securely stored on your device and sent to Google when you sign in. This helps prevent passwords or verification codes from being stolen or lost.
Google Passkey Currently supported on a variety of devices and browsers, including iPhone, Mac, Android, Windows 10, Chrome, Safari, and Edge. You can use Google Passkey to log in to Google services such as Gmail, YouTube, Drive, Photos,…
How Google Passkey works
To use Google Passkey, you need to create and register an access key on your device. You can create multiple access keys for many different devices. Each access key only works with a single device and cannot be copied or transferred to another device.
When you want to sign in to your Google account on another device or browser, simply enter your email and select Google Passkey as the sign in method. You'll then receive a notification on your device with your access key, asking you to confirm your identity using on-device authentication such as fingerprint, face, or PIN.
Once you confirm successfully, your access key will be sent to Google to check its validity and allow you to sign in.
Authentication mechanism on your device Google Passkey helps ensure higher security than passwords or two-factor verification codes. Because, if someone knows your email, they still can't log into your account without a device with an access key. Conversely, if someone gets a device with your access key, they still can't log in to your account without authentication on the device.
Steps to create Google Passkey
You can use any supported device to generate Passkey. In this tutorial, I will use iPhone on Safari browser, the process will be the same on other devices.
Note: You must be the owner of the device that generated the Passkey, as the code is available on the device even after you sign out of your Google account. So if someone else has access to the device, i.e. they can unlock it, they can sign in to your Google account using the Passkey you created.
