200% faster logins
Logins are expedited with passkeys, as they use quick biometric authentication, significantly cutting down access time.

Data breach protection
With passkeys, the risk of data breaches is greatly reduced, as they securely store authentication details on the user's device, away from vulnerable servers.

100% Phishing protection
Passkeys offer absolute protection against phishing attacks. Since there’s no actual password to be stolen, users are safeguarded against common tactics used by hackers, such as fake login pages.

Passkeys, you can play around with them on passkeys.io but hopefully you will see them everywhere soon. The web is bugged in that we didn't have a sane auth layer. This is the solution. The web will be 10x better with effortless secure auhtentication.
