Although Android got support for FIDO2 earlier this year, Google is now allowing some of its services to take advantage of the protocol's password-less authentication, starting today with Pixel devices, and rolling out over the next few days more widely to other devices running Android 7 Nougat and later.

Chrome's password manager may be getting favicons in the near future

Chrome's built-in Password Manager is a convenient way to store and use your login credentials, especially when convenience is paramount. But actually managing passwords in that list can be a bit tedious, given it's just a long list of URLs, usernames and blocked-out passwords.
