Google urges users to abandon passwords
In May of this year, Google introduced a new authorization method into its services – “access keys” that are supposed to replace the usual passwords. In October, the company was the first to offer users to create an access key for authorization by default.
Access keys allow you to log in to your accounts using your fingerprint, face recognition, or the chosen method of unlocking the device screen, such as a PIN. Many leading websites and applications already support access keys.
