Passkeys are a new way to log in to many different services and apps – without long and difficult to remember passwords. Setting up a passkey is also very easy.
In order to use passkeys to log in to an app or website, the developers of that application must have implemented the appropriate security features. This is not yet the case everywhere – currently only a few selected services support the feature. However, new apps are added almost every day.
Below we will show you step by step, using PayPal as an example, how you can set up a passkey on Android.
