Apple’s Face ID (and Touch ID before it) is nothing short of miraculous magic. High security and high convenience. Something else that promises both is on the way. David Farrington has a few details:
Short of a brain scan, probably not, but the good folks who dream up standards for humankind have a new one. It’s called Web Authentication; already available on Firefox 60, and coming soon to Microsoft Edge and Chrome 67 and maybe one day to Safari. That pretty much covers humanity’s browser users, right?
The advantage of something new that everyone gets behind?
The whole idea behind WebAuthn is simple. Increase security. Increase convenience.
Like Face ID.
