OPPO joins FIDO Alliance to drive password-less sign-ins

Passwords are a pain. They are much needed yet such frustration for users. Different sites have different password configuration requirements, making password creation an art and a memory challenge.

How wonderful it would be if passwords could be made simpler without compromising on security. Or better yet, if passwords can be replaced by something much easier for secure access.

The FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance aims to develop standards standards for password-free identity authentication and login for websites, services, and applications. Its FIDO2 authentication specification provides a secure and convenient technical framework supported by the likes of Google, Microsoft, and Qualcomm.

OPPO has joined the alliance to support the development and implementation of the latest FIDO standards for password-less logins. It will utilise basic public passkey cryptography and defined protocols to provide users with fast, user-friendly and secure sign-in experiences across services.

OPPO will also work closely with fellow members to develop and promote FIDO Authentication certifications to mitigate the over-reliance on password-only logins within different services.

In the future, users can use OPPO smartphones to work as a “passkey” to log in to different services across browsers, apps, and platforms, which helps to create a seamless connected experience.

When using multiple smart devices, including new devices and nearby devices belonging to others, users can automatically access their FIDO credentials on the core OPPO device without re-enrolling every account on other OS platforms or browsers.
