1Password and Apple Passkey

Over recent years I have avoided using Keychain and tried to work exclusive with 1Password. I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on Apple's Passkey for its various upcoming OSs. It seems to be dependent on and layered on top of Keychain. How would this impact 1Password and the way these might work together?

Thanks very much for any guidance.

    I too am looking forward to Passkeys.

    Passkeys is not a purely Apple technology. It's based on FIDO WebAuthn so supported by a very large number of companies to create a new standard.

    I too, try not to use password managers that are limited to one companies eco-system and try to use 1Password for this to enable cross device and cross platform and cross eco system compatibility and syncing.

    According to the 1Password blog post a few weeks ago, they will be supporting passkeys within 1Password and that will enable syncing between 1Password devices. I hope this means mobile, like iOS too.

    I don't know how the passkey gets added to 1Password instead of Apple Keychain, but i'm assuming that browsers will ask where the passkey should be saved when it tries to create one and 1Password will be an option.

    There are exciting times ahead for this new credential type though!
