I would like to know if you use or understand what passwordless is or if you consider it essential on any web service or mobile app that you use?

I love passwordless authentication. Its a secure way to authenticate my user and I don't have to remember my passwords anymore. Also now almost all devices have some passwordless authentication possibilities.

I do understand passwordless, and it is good to have for applications that I use. If applications use password login, I end up resetting password 90% of times except my Google account - reset % for this is close to 30-50%. Mostly, it's always logged in my device. But yes, I would prefer passwordless everytime over passwords

@felipe_millan - You have raised a great question. I think businesses now should start thinking about the new technology which is better in terms of UX and security both. There is big complexity with passwords. On any website I use today on the internet, we have account creation and passwords. so you should be either able to smart enough to remember all the passwords or you may repeat passwords. But that is Risky. Even using a password keeper is a workaround for problems where businesses are not able to provide quick authentication with security. Passwordless authentication is gaining in popularity due to its convenience, security, and user experience. It has the potential to reduce the amount of time it takes to log into an account and reduce the risk of someone else accessing a user’s account without their permission.

Use true passwordless that doesn't require a password to setup or register. Passkeys made facial recognition, fingerprint, and pin based verification possible on all devices and supported by Apple, Google and Microsoft. Do not use magic links or MFA as they are susceptible to hacking.

I appreciate you for asking this question. Passwords have become a complex issue as users struggle to remember them and reusing passwords puts them at risk. Password managers are not foolproof. Passwordless authentication offers a more secure and user-friendly alternative. This approach reduces access time and the risk of unauthorized access, making it essential for businesses to adopt.
