Will FIDO Passkey help us to move on from Passwords? – Dario Salice

Passwords are bad at protecting our digital assets and they make it harder for us to access them. Security: An estimated 22% of US consumers self-identify as having been hacked at least once. A hacked account sells for as little as $1. Access: Forgetting your password seems like merely an annoyance. However, it contributes to churn on consumer platforms and can make up 50% of corporate IT Support calls. All is not lost; Passkey is here to save the day. In this session, I’ll walk you through what passkey is, how it works, and how it can impact your churn and security goals.
