During the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC23), Apple communicated that starting with iOS 17 release in fall, it will allow third-party apps, such as password managers, to save and offer passkeys for apps and websites across the system, without an exception for mobile devices. Google has also revealed that Android 14 will allow users to opt to use third-party credential management apps to store their passkeys on various devices.
“Tech giants are paving the way with new standards in online authentication, and we at NordPass are excited to see their efforts. With third-party integrations allowed on iOS 17 and Android 14, internet users will be able to choose which service provider to trust with passkeys, which in the end, are highly sensitive data items,” says Sorin Manole, a product strategist at NordPass.
Offering new features to business customers
After a gradual rollout that started on June 5 this year, over 9 million organizations will be able to allow their users to sign in to Google Workspace and Google Cloud accounts using passkeys instead of passwords in an open beta testing phase. In response to this move, NordPass has allowed organizations to store and manage the acquired Google passkeys in its platform.
Since March, NordPass business and individual customers can store and manage passkeys on the desktop app, web vault, and the Firefox and Chrome-based browser extensions, with mobile support available in the upcoming months.The company is also planning to introduce passwordless login to NordPass and provide a solution to help online businesses to integrate the support of passkey authentication.
