What is Passwordless?
Passwordless refers to passwordless authentication or login which represents a massive shift in how billions of users, both business and consumer, will securely log in to their critical resources and systems. The user can simply authenticate using a passwordless device, such as a FIDO2-based hardware security key to verify their credential with the application or system.
