iPhone: Apple can replace passwords with facial and touch recognition when subscribing to online services
Tech giant Apple plans to introduce a new security feature for the iPhone Y Mac. They called skeleton keys in ICloud Keychain, the feature will eliminate the need to remember passwords for a user by replacing password functionality with Face ID or touch ID when it comes to subscribing to new online services. Apple announced this feature in one of the developer sessions called ‘Move Beyond Passwords.’ The feature would come to iOS15 and macOS Monterey but it will need a third party service to work.
So the general idea, and how users will experience it, is that when they try to sign up for a new online service, it would only require their Face ID or Touch ID, with no need for any password on their side, which eliminates gaming passwords. completely. Apple says that in the login process, two cryptographic keys will be created: one public and one private. The private key is never sent to the server, so it should make you invisible if a hacker tries to take control of your credentials.
The feature, for now, would only work on Apple devices, but at least it seems like a good starting point. If Apple could also implement the feature on other devices in the future, it would be a better case with the security of your personal data, or rather, a better shield against potential data hacking attempts.
