TikTok Joins the FIDO Alliance & Introduces Passkeys for iOS Devices   

TikTok has announced that they are introducing Pass keys authentication feature for all iOS users of the app. Passkeys are actually a biometric authentication system that is encrypted cryptographically and it is something that is being promoted by an alliance called FIDO alliance, which has some big names like Apple, Google and Microsoft. And all these big companies are trying to solve the problem that comes with passwords, both in terms of security, attacks. And also convenience, because the more online facilities that you use, more services that you use, more passwords you have to remember. So it’s also from a user experience perspective, but also from a security perspective. They’re trying to get rid of the whole password system totally, trying to authenticate everything using biometric authentication.
