Safari going to support password-less logins via Face ID and Touch ID

Apple, iOS, iPhone

Safari 14, the version of Apple’s browser that will ship with iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur. Will let you use Face ID or Touch ID to log in to websites built to support the feature. It should make a login into a website as easier as opening an app.

Unlike passwords, which are easier sometimes for guessing and phishing attacks. It’s a standard that individual websites need to add support for, but is supported by the stock browser in iOS has the potential to be a major boost for adoption.

This isn’t the first time that Apple supported parts of the FIDO2 standard. Last year’s iOS added support for physical FIDO2. These security features provide more security for your details. Because hackers need your physical access to gain your details.

Safari 14’s functionality should be a lot more seamless. Relying on the biometric security that’s built into your Apple device. Rather than needing a separate piece of hardware in the form of a security key.
