Google has recently announced its new passkey feature for personal Google accounts, which offers an additional convenient method to sign-in. This feature is currently available for users who manually enable it in their account settings. However, enterprise users of Google, such as Google Workspace and Google Cloud, will have this feature enabled later this year.
This new feature is a part of Google’s larger initiative to improve user authentication and provide users with a more secure and user-friendly experience. By using a physical security key or FEITIAN biometric key with this new feature, users can have a more seamless and secure sign-in experience.
FEITIAN’s FIDO security key and card products are a perfect complement for Google’s new passkey feature, as device-bound passkeys provide a highly secure and convenient method for users to authenticate. With FEITIAN products, users can authenticate themselves using their biometric fingerprint to easily access their Google accounts without the need for passwords.
FEITIAN’s biometric keys also offer an additional layer of security that complements Google’s new passkey feature. Since the keys use biometric authentication this adds an extra layer of identity protection, so that they are even less susceptible to phishing attacks and other types of cyber attacks that rely on stealing passwords.
By combining the power of FEITIAN products with Google’s new passkey feature, users can enjoy a more secure and streamlined authentication process. As Google continues to roll out this feature to more users, we can expect to see an increase in the adoption of passwordless authentication methods, such as biometric keys.
While Google’s new Passkey feature is being rolled out to more users, it is currently not for regulated industries, governments or for privileged access scenarios. As a higher level of authentication assurance is needed for these cases, hardware security keys such as FEITIAN’s FIDO solution are required. And more, if you sign in on a device shared with others, it’s better to use a hardware FIDO security key instead of synced passkeys.

Setting up FEITIAN products with Google Passkey is a simple process, as demonstrated below.
At FEITIAN, we are committed to providing our users with the most secure and user-friendly authentication solutions. We believe that Google’s new passkey feature is an important step towards a more secure digital future, and we are excited to see how it will evolve in the coming years.
