Today’s average Internet user has dozens of online accounts, which makes managing large numbers of passwords a very time-consuming and frustrating task for users and organizations. At the same time, password-only authentication methods suffer from a few significant setbacks, from the high administrative costs involved in changing and resetting user passwords to the considerable security risks associated with passwords. weak and reuse of passwords across multiple accounts. As such, there have been calls across the tech industry to move to a login mechanism that can alleviate reliance on passwords or even replace them entirely.

Founded in 2012 to help reduce the world’s overreliance on passwords, the FIDO Alliance strives to develop identity authentication and passwordless login standards for websites, services and applications worldwide. The Alliance’s latest authentication specification, FIDO2, provides a secure and convenient technical framework supported by companies such as Google, Microsoft and Qualcomm.

Following its entry into the FIDO Alliance, OPPO will actively use FIDO standards on its smart devices and work to optimize user experiences and improve authentication security. In the future, users will be able to use OPPO smartphones to function as a “passkey” to log into different services across browsers, apps and platforms, creating a seamless connected experience. When using multiple smart devices, users can automatically access their FIDO credentials on the primary OPPO device without re-registering each account on other OS platforms or browsers.

As a member of the FIDO Alliance, OPPO will also join the various FIDO technical and regional working groups, through which OPPO will make technical contributions to bring passwordless login technology to more use cases and services.

In the digital world, greater information flows bring greater security challenges. Through its “Inspiration Ahead” brand proposition, OPPO will work with industry partners to create more secure and convenient passwordless connected experiences that enable new smart experiences for more users.
