Fido (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance, www.fidoalliance.org, was established in July 2012 to address the lack of interoperability between powerful authentication technologies and solve user problems in creating and recalling multiple usernames and passwords. The alliance plans to change the type of authentication by developing standard specifications for better authentication, which define an open, scalable and interoperable set of mechanisms that reduce password dependence. Better authentication is stronger, more private and easier to use when authenticated on online services.

Apple has joined Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance as a board member to obtain password-free authentication. Apple has already implemented several forms of biometric authentication, such as FaceID and TouchID, but this could indicate that the introduction of other forms of passwordless technology and even a step toward the gradual application of passwords throughout Apple`s ecosystem could come. Although Apple has not made an official announcement, it has been listed as one of the 40 Board Level members on the fido site. However, since its inception in 2013, Apple has been remarkably absent.
