Microsoft released a new Windows 11 test build under no 23486 for program participants Windows Insiders. The most notable innovation is the maintenance of access key technology with which users can log into apps and websites without entering a password.

The new feature is based on Windows Hello technology to create a PIN and access key based on a fingerprint or face scan. Such a key can then be used for authorization in supported applications and websites.

For example, a user could go to a website that supports access keys, set up a new authentication method, and then use the access token for authorization, The Verge explained.

Access keys are managed from the corresponding section in the operating system settings – you just need to go to the “Accounts” menu and select the “Access keys” item.

Although the Microsoft Edge browser has long supported the basic web authentication standard with access keys, adding support for this technology to Windows Hello will make it easier to manage user data at the operating system level.

Using access keys is considered the most secure method of authentication because, unlike regular passwords, attackers cannot steal them as a result of phishing or brute-force techniques.
