Passkeys: This security feature is also coming in WhatsApp, know its benefits

Many businesses around the world use passkeys, and they also give them to their customers. Users are also encouraged to do this by Google and Meta. There has been news recently in this series that WhatsApp will soon support passkeys. Even though Meta only released Passkeys for Android users last year, it is now available for iPhone users as well.

Only the app will receive the new update. According to one of WABetaInfo's reports, WhatsApp is developing a new security feature called passkey. The report also includes a screenshot of iOS beta version

The login procedure is more secure thanks to the passkey security feature. Typically, to access the account on an unfamiliar device, a 6-digit code must be entered. Face ID, Touch ID, and the device passcode will be needed after this code.

Once the Passkey feature is implemented, a six-digit code will no longer be needed to log in each time. Google, Apple, and Microsoft collaborated with the FIDO Alliance to develop Passkeys.

Once you have used Passkeys, you won't need to enter a passcode or password each time to log in; instead, you can use the phone's fingerprint or Face ID sensor. Users will be able to choose whether or not to use passkeys, though.
