Google is enabling passkeys as a login method for all accounts as part of its effort to move users away from passwords to more secure authentication methods.
Google is rolling out support for passkeys in Android and Chrome in a significant step toward passwordless authentication.
An attacker was able to compromise a developer account and steal a portion of the LastPass source code recently, the company said. But no customer data was affected.
Thanks to all the data breaches and security incidents over the last few years, attackers are sitting on a gold mine of valuable credentials information which they can use to launch credential-stuffing attacks against major Web services and other applications.
Google has integrated its Password Checkup functionality into Chrome 79 to warn when people use compromised credentials.
