How to easily create passkey on a Google Account in Windows 11

Google has introduced the ability to use passkeys to access your account and services. It is a secure and convenient alternative that uses biometric authentication methods such as fingerprint, face scan, and PIN on the device to sign in to websites and apps to deliver a passwordless experience. This is the “passwordless future” that protects users from phishing and hacking attacks.

Previously, Google brought the passkey experience to Chrome and Android only. Luckily, you can now also configure your Google Account. While passkeys make your account more secure, remember that each key is unique to each device. This means you will have to configure a new passkey for each computer or phone you want to access that specific Google Account from.

In this guide, we will show you how to easily create and set a passkey on your Google Account in Windows 11.
