WebAuthn for Consumers and Businesses

biometrics

The technology industry is always changing, and that means businesses need to be prepared to adapt to new technologies as they come about. One such technology that businesses should be aware of is WebAuthn. Here's what you need to know about WebAuthn and how it will impact consumers and businesses.


What is WebAuthn?

WebAuthn is a new authentication standard that is being adopted by major browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox. This standard will ultimately replace traditional passwords with more secure alternatives like biometrics and public key cryptography.

What does this mean for consumers?
This change will have a major impact on how consumers log in to their favorite websites. For example, instead of using a traditional password, consumers will be able to use their fingerprint or a security key. This will make it much more difficult for hackers to gain access to sensitive information like financial account login information.

What does this mean for businesses?
Businesses will need to update their systems to support WebAuthn if they want their customers to be able to use this new authentication standard. Additionally, businesses may need to educate their customers on how to use WebAuthn-compatible devices if they want them to take advantage of this new technology.

The adoption of WebAuthn will have a major impact on both consumers and businesses. Consumers will benefit from increased security, while businesses will need to update their systems and educate their customers on how to use this new technology.
