Microsoft tells me that it is the first company to support password-less authentication using the FIDO2 WebAuthn and CTAP2 specifications, which are supported by the YubiKey 5 Series hardware security kes.
Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), we've been working with others to develop open standards for the next generation of authentication. Of course, you can also use the Microsoft Authenticator app to sign in, but that functionality already existed within Windows. Their objective was to give users a way to log into websites without needing any passwords-just a hardware token, such as a USB security key.
"This combination of ease of use, security and broad industry support is going to be transformational", stated Microsoft in an announcement.
If you're sick of creating, remembering, and entering passwords, you're not alone: Microsoft is now on your side. Then, navigate to Security "more security options".
Identify what type of security key you have (USB or NFC) and select Next. If you don't want to buy a separate security key, you can also use Windows Hello to perform a biometric login with your face or your fingerprint. This generates a unique public-private key pair between your key and your Microsoft account, and only the key stores the private key.
You will then be prompted to set a unique PIN to protect your key.
Take the follow-up action by touching either the button or gold disk if your key has one (or read the instruction manual to figure out what else it might be).
Once you've have completed these steps, you will now see "Sign in with Windows Hello or a security key" when you attempt to login to Microsoft services.
Name your security key so that you can distinguish it from other keys.
