Microsoft finally opens up passkeys to all accounts, almost two years after Apple announced the feature

Almost two years after Apple first announced Passkeys, Microsoft is finally rolling out support to all consumer accounts. After teasing us with passkey integration in Windows 11 last year, Microsoft has finally spread the love across all platforms, including Windows, Android, and iOS.

With passkeys enabled, you can generate a passkey that lets you sign in with just your face, fingerprint, PIN, or a security key. Once your passkey is up and running, logging into apps like Word, OneNote, and Outlook will be smoother, letting you use just Face ID or Touch ID.
