Users of Apple’s Safari web browser will be able to utilise Face ID or Touch ID authentication to log into websites by the end of this year.
With iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur, Apple is bringing a biometric web authentication platform to Safari 14 and is encouraging developers to jump aboard.
The system is similar to the third-party apps, like the majority of banking apps for example, that support Face and Touch ID logins once the credentials have been entered for the first time.
In Safari 14, the first time users sign in to the website, they’ll need to enter their password. Then they’ll be asked whether they want to enable Face/Touch ID for the next login. When they come to the site again, it’ll just be a case of showing their face or placing a digit on the Home button to enter the account.
