Passkey is still under development, but it is likely that it will soon be available to all iOS users. WhatsApp is working to add Passkey support in its iOS app. This feature is already available on Android devices, and makes it easy and safe to sign in WhatsApp.
What is Passkey?
Passkey is a type of digital key that is stored on your device. You can combine it with biometrics like face ID or touch ID to secure your WhatsApp account.
By using Paski, you will not need to enter a six -digit code or SMS certification code. Just unlock your device and sign in to WhatsApp.
Passkey is a new type of login method that replaces passwords. This technique stores a digital key safely in your device (iPhone or Mac), which can be unlocked with your face ID or touch ID.
Using this key you can easily log in to WhatsApp and other apps, worrying about typing or remembering it without any password.
