Certain services can be accessed by Android users without password

Google will soon introduce a new update that will allow Android users to access specific services on Chrome for Android without needing a password. In its place, a fingerprint will be requested.

This new security and authentication method is based upon the Fast Identity Online 2 (FIDO2) and WebAuthn protocol open standard. This method in particularly has been shown to be more secure than having to manually input a password, and can be used in conjunction with two-factor authentication (2FA) if required. To be clear, the ability to let users use their fingerprint to authenticate Google Pay purchases already exist, in addition to app logons.

This is just Google expanding the functionality to other services. Also worth noting is that the authentication process isn’t just limited to fingerprint recognition, as you also have the choice to log in with either PINs or pattern unlock.
