Android 14, the next major update of Google’s operating system, will come with passkey support for third-party apps. This means that password manager apps like Dashlane and 1Password will be able to integrate their own passkeys to provide an additional layer of security.
Passkeys are unique, one-time-use codes that can be used in place of a traditional password. They are more secure than passwords because they are generated on the fly and cannot be reused, making them difficult for hackers to guess or steal.
With passkey support in Android 14, users of password manager apps will be able to use their passkeys to unlock other apps on their device, without having to enter their password every time. This will save time and improve security, as users will not have to remember multiple complex passwords for different apps.
The passkey support feature is expected to be a significant boost for password manager apps, as it will make them more convenient and user-friendly. It will also help to increase the adoption of password managers, which are an essential tool for protecting sensitive information and preventing cyber attacks.
While the exact release date for Android 14 is not yet known, it is expected to be rolled out in the coming months, nots NIX Solutions. Users of password manager apps like Dashlane and 1Password can look forward to enjoying the added convenience and security that passkey support will bring.
