You Can Now Sign-In to Your Microsoft Account Without a Password

Microsoft tells me that it is the first company to support password-less authentication using the FIDO2WebAuthn and CTAP2 specifications, which are supported by the YubiKey 5 Series hardware security kes. Today Microsoft has enabled this feature and Windows 10 users can now use Edge to perform password-less logins to their Microsoft account using a FIDO2 compatible security key. To get started, you'll want to head to the Microsoft account page and select SecurityMore security options. And its Microsoft Edge web browser now supports the widest array of authenticators compared to other major browsers, Microsoft says.
"This combination of ease of use, security and broad industry support is going to be transformational", stated Microsoft in an announcement. 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 private encryption key is stored on and known only to the device that created it and can only be unlocked using a PIN known to you or a biometric signal such as a gesture or touch of a button.
On Tuesday, the company activated the feature, which is powered by FIDO2, an authentication standard that's created to help the tech industry go password-less.
Regardless of which device you buy, you'll be able to use it across a wide variety of Microsoft services, including Outlook, Skype, OneDrive, Xbox Live, and even Windows itself. This PIN is stored locally on the security key-not with Microsoft accounts. For now, Microsoft is only supporting password-less sign-in through Microsoft Edge, so if you're committed to another browser, you'll need to sit this out for now. From there, select "More security options" and then "Windows Hello and security keys", which will walk you through the process of setting up a security key.
Identify what type of security key you have (USB or NFC) and select Next.
Microsoft will now prompt you to enter your key.
You will be redirected to the setup experience where you will insert or tap your key.
Take the follow-up action by touching your security key. The security key support is arriving through Microsoft's Edge browser, which has struggled to gain popularity.
