SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bitwarden, the leading open source password manager trusted by millions, today announced that it has expanded its partnership in the FIDO Alliance, an open industry association that promotes the development of standards for passwordless authentication.
As a sponsor-level member, Bitwarden will further its involvement and influence in shaping the future of FIDO specifications. It joins the hundreds of global tech leaders across enterprise, payments, telecom, government, and healthcare in support of the FIDO Alliance mission to reduce the world’s reliance on passwords.
Bitwarden recently acquired Passwordless.dev, a European-based startup that provides an API framework for developers to build passkeys and FIDO2 WebAuthn features such as Face ID, fingerprint, and Windows Hello. Development time is reduced from weeks to minutes with Bitwarden Passwordless.dev.
The acquisition represents an intentional and rapid acceleration to offer passwordless innovations to global enterprises.
