Continuous innovation to keep you safe online

For years, we’ve been at the forefront of improvements to authentication technology, and earlier this year we shared the progress we’ve made on our Google Password Manager in Android and Chrome, and how we’re accelerating industry-wide progress toward a passwordless future. Today, we’re announcing the next stage in this journey with the release of passkey support for developers on Android and Chrome. General availability for everyone using Android 9 and higher will follow later in November. This is a critical step in the wide adoption of passkeys, which will work with your Google Password Manager to further simplify sign-ins across devices, websites and applications — no matter the platform. The best part? Instead of typing a password, you can sign in with whatever method you usually use to unlock your phone (passcode, fingerprint, facial recognition, etc.).
