A new report revealed that the Android operating system has been certified by the FIDO2 authentication protocol to allow users to log in to their accounts without having to enter a password, but through other authentication methods such as fingerprints.

Report further said, Android phone running version 7.0 and above will support the FIDO2 protocol directly through the update Google Play services, which allow users to access their accounts via newer methods such as fingerprint, both on websites or applications that support the FIDO2 protocol.

This protocol provides a simple interface that developers can use to support the new feature in their applications, and their different locations, in order to increase the protection of user accounts, especially in cases of penetration, leakage of passwords.
