New chrome 67 lessens password dependency, which is the browser that once was a single option for account protection, whether it is online or offline.

Google has launched a new version for the Chrome browser on Tuesday that referred as a version 67.0.3396.62 for Mac, Linux and Windows. The updated version allows users to sign up and sign in with the help of biometric information that has been obtained by the accompanying smart devices as well as USB keys. It also adds comparatively improved support to the Progressive Web Apps (PWAs).

Google patched 34 bugs with additional support to the WebAuthn – a credential management API. The most remarkable updates to the browser are Spectre and mitigations. It also includes a notable feature known as Site Isolation, which fundamentally detaches the processes taking place between various tabs, which helps it to continue its work, even if one of the tabs breaks down.

“Enterprises and online service providers looking to protect themselves and their customers from the risks associated with passwords — including phishing, man-in-the-middle attacks and the abuse of stolen credentials — can soon deploy standards-based strong authentication that works through the browser or via an external authenticator,” says a written statement by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the FIDO Alliance.

Chrome now aims at promoting Progressive Web Apps that local PC can install. PWAs do work the same way for android in Chrome. In order to fix the technical issues over security, different solutions have entered the sector from years that also included the popular two-factor authentication i.e. 2FA.
