Many users of network services have encountered problems due to passwords. And because of the advancement of the times, the security of passwords is becoming unreliable. In recent years, the online world has been constantly seeking a new and non-password-based user authentication method, and now it seems that there is finally a formal answer.
The W3C, which is responsible for the Internet standard, recently announced that they have determined all the standards for Web Authentication (WebAuthn) and officially incorporated WebAuthn into the web standard. Under this new standard, users can use their fingerprints or their mobile phones to log in to a supported website without entering any password.
Because W3C has started to recommend browsers and websites to support WebAuthn in the past year, some websites have already add login methods using WebAuthn. Now WebAuthn has officially become the network authentication standard. I believe that more websites will support WebAuthn’s login method in the future.
