PayPal is rolling ‘passkeys’ to Android users, the password-free login system that’s being pushed by Apple, Google, Microsoft, the FIDO alliance, and more.

PayPal says that the rollout will start on its website, rather than its app and that you have to be running Chrome on Android 9 or up to access passkeys. If it’s available for your account, you may get a prompt asking if you want to create a passkey, which you can authenticate using the biometric system or passcode that you use to unlock your phone.

Using a passkey with PayPal won’t remove the password from your account, since you’ll still need that to log in on unsupported devices. (While PayPal rolled out passkey support for Apple devices last year, the company’s documentation says the feature isn’t available on Windows yet.)
