Microsoft Windows 11 Update Expands Passkey Support and Ditches Passwords

Microsoft Introduces Passkey Support with Windows 11 Update, Allowing Users to Access Services with Windows Hello

Microsoft is set to introduce an update to Windows 11, expanding its support for passkeys. With this update, users can create passkeys using Windows Hello, enabling them to access supported services using facial recognition, fingerprint scans, or a personal identification number (PIN), completely eliminating the need for passwords.

Passkeys can be easily managed on a Windows PC, and users will also have the option to use passkeys stored on their mobile devices for sign-ins.

Microsoft is also providing options for IT teams, allowing them to remove passwords as an authentication method for employees on Windows 11 devices equipped with Windows Hello for Business.
