Apple, Google, and Microsoft have expanded their support for a passwordless login standard created by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium.
New features will allow websites and apps to offer password-free login alternatives securely and easily across all devices and platforms.
These features are based on standards developed for websites and applications, with an end-to-end password-free login option.
