security: Passkeys, Cross-Account Protection by Google

Google shares update on passkeys and new ways to protect accounts

In less than a year, passkeys have been used to authenticate people more than 1 billion times across over 400 million Google Accounts. Passkeys are easy to use and phishing resistant, only relying on a fingerprint, face scan or a pin making them 50% faster than passwords.

Mere days before Google proudly announced that over 400 million accounts have used passkeys, William Brown (developer behind webauthn-rs) penned Passkeys: A Shattered Dream, in which he describes how corporate greed from Apple and Google destroyed our passkey future. Juxtaposition! 🙃
