LastPass is excited to announce that support for passkeys is coming later this year. You will be able to save and access passkeys right in your LastPass vault, alongside your passwords and other security credentials.
What is a passkey?
Passkeys are a replacement for passwords that provide faster, easier, and more secure sign-ins to websites and apps across a user’s devices. Passkeys are aligned to FIDO2 standards, so you get validation that you are meeting the strongest security standards that exist.
How do passkeys work with my vault?
Storage and use of a passkey to log into sites in your vault will closely mirror the login experience of using a password – but what is happening in the background is much more secure.
As passkeys become more widely available as a login option across websites and applications, LastPass will be there to seamlessly support you.
Passkeys are a new authentication method that replaces traditional passwords. They offer a faster, simpler, and more secure way to sign in to websites and applications across your devices. Passkeys are designed to align with the FIDO2 standards, ensuring that you meet the highest security standards available.
When it comes to your LastPass vault, passkeys will be integrated alongside your passwords and other security credentials. You will be able to save and access your passkey directly in your LastPass vault. The login experience will be similar to using a password, but behind the scenes, passkeys provide a stronger level of security.
With passkeys, you'll enjoy a streamlined and secure sign-in experience, reducing the reliance on traditional passwords and enhancing your online security.
Passkeys represent a novel authentication method that supersedes conventional passwords. They present a quicker, easier, and more secure approach to accessing websites and applications on all your devices. Passkeys have been thoughtfully developed to comply with FIDO2 standards, thereby ensuring the implementation of the most robust security measures available.
Will we be able to sign in to LastPass with passkeys? Right now the "passwordless" solution is not passwordless. We always have to bootstrap a new session with our master password...
A stored within your LastPass vault, passkeys function similarly to passwords during logins, but with stronger underlying security. As passkeys gain broader adoption among online platforms, LastPass pledges seamless support. Ash, a member of the LastPass Community Care Team, encourages users to explore this advancement.

Looking forward to passkey login in addition to the already supported 2FA with passkeys. I use YUBI keys and this will go a long, long way towards security for those master keys.
