Samsung revealed that it brought Galaxy PassKey to the Samsung Pass app with One UI 6.0 update. This feature allows Galaxy users to safely store passkeys created in apps or websites. It offers secure passkey authentication with just one fingerprint authentication.
Over the past few months, various authenticator platforms as well as Google promoted the advantages of PassKey. Accordingly, Samsung is here to give users the convenience of using Galaxy PassKey, available on Galaxy devices running One UI 6.0.
The South Korean tech giant also announced that the security of the passkey has been further developed by supporting the safe synchronization of the saved passkey between the user’s multiple devices through “Samsung Knox Matrix.”
PassKey is a digital credential that replaces the account and password required for authentication of websites and apps with biometric authentication, so passwords are no longer required. It can replace existing passwords more safely through a new concept of logging in to various websites and apps.
How the passkey works
Easy and fast login: Users no longer need to enter their ID and password. PassKey allows you to log in using biometric authentication instead of a password, so you can log in to websites and apps as quickly and easily as unlocking your phone with your fingerprint.
Easy registration and setup: Once you register the passkey, you can use it as if you were using it on the original device even when you change the device. Even if you change devices, your passkey will move to the new device with you, so you don’t have to reset all your passwords.
Safe user protection: Imagine a lock that can only be opened with a key that can never be copied or stolen by others. PassKey only works on websites and apps that users have registered for, and it keeps users safe from phishing attacks that try to steal passwords.
