Starting this summer, 1Password, the popular password management platform, is taking a bold step towards a passwordless future by fully embracing passkeys. This announcement follows in the footsteps of tech giants like Google and Apple, who have already integrated passkey support into their products.

Passkeys offer a significant improvement over traditional passwords by offering a unique digital key that is stored locally on your device. This eliminates the risk of passwords being stolen in the case of data breaches or phishing attempts and can even integrate with your device’s biometric security features like fingerprints or facial recognition.


1Password’s passkey support is “built on the same strong security foundation as our secret keys,” which act as a backup sign-in option, the company said in a blog post. “All you’ll ever need to sign in to 1Password, unlock your vaults, and securely access your data is your one passkey.”

In contrast to user-created passwords, passkeys are generated and stored on your device, ensuring that they are never shared with any cloud service. They offer strong protection against phishing attempts and have a full 256 bits of entropy to prevent cracking, making them even more secure than secret keys. Passkeys are safeguarded by biometric security and hardware-level protection, making them a safe and convenient option for users.


1Password is confident that passkeys will become the preferred method of authentication for many users and is working to make them portable across all devices and platforms. The company is also committed to making the transition to passkeys as seamless as possible for its users, whether they are early adopters or prefer to stick with passwords for a while longer.

1Password’s move to embrace passkeys is a big step forward in the ongoing efforts to make the internet a safer place. With this announcement, 1Password is sending a clear message that passwordless logins are the future, and it’s leading the way in making this future a reality for all its users.
