X And LinkedIn Are Working On Adding Passkey Access For A More Secure Login Approach

Popular social media platforms X and LinkedIn seem to be on the lookout to transform the way by which users of the apps log in.

Both companies might be following in the footsteps of popular social media platform TikTok which managed to achieve success with a similar approach by making use of passkeys for the best and most secure way to enter the platform.

The news comes to us thanks to Steve Moser who says the latest updates arose in the form of back-end codes that are suggesting how Passkey is the way to go. However, there is yet to be any kind of official update mentioned by either tech giant.

For those readers that might not be aware, the use of Passkey support technology makes use of data transfer that relies upon cryptographic information which can ensure safe log-in attempts across the board. Some common examples of this kind of revolutionary technology include face IDs and touch IDs.

A new report generated by the FIDO allegiance firm says passkeys are the modern means by which passwords can get replaced. Furthermore, they’re fast in speed, convenient, simple, and definitely more reliable when a user wishes to sign in on a webpage as well as a platform through their device.

Similarly, this technology is more secure as it isn’t prone to acts like phishing and continues to display strong characteristics as well as greater transparency for users that no background activity is actually taking place. So what you see is what you get.

On the other hand, they negate malicious attempts such as phishing and continue to serve as strong, reliable, and convenient means of entering the platform. Moreover, those trying to create a new account for platforms as well as websites will surely benefit as it's just super easy and can function across a long list of devices, and some more devices that lie in close proximity, the FIDO adds.

Therefore, it more more sense now than ever for apps like X and LinkedIn to move in this direction as the risks are always high of security getting compromised with login attempts. Moreover, we might be seeing more apps join the bandwagon soon as their mode of accessing the platform in the future as well.

So far, it’s the likes of Google, iPhone maker Apple, and even software giant Microsoft that have vowed to take on the technology and make it an integral part of their systems.
