The use of passwords to secure company accounts and devices has a long tradition and decision-makers and private users have not questioned this practice too much for a number of years.

At the same time, the interest of many citizens in the subject of data protection is increasing. The development towards passwordless authentication is the next step towards maximum data security and data protection while at the same time being as easy to use and implement as possible.

The standard promises to replace the practice of password use. It also has the potential to fundamentally change the way that individual users and companies operate on the Internet.
I'm looking forward to a password free future!
