After failing for over 4000 years, it is time for passwords to die. The WebAuthn standard, approved by the World Wide Web Committee in March 2019, enables every authentication provider to utilise mechanisms such as tokens and biometric authentication instead of passwords. Users can re-use the same token for different services, allowing a much-improved user experience. We are convinced this new standard is going to improve digital security significantly. No more password breaches, no more phishing and no more frustration with password policies.
