GitHub now supports the WebAuthn standard for authentication. A broad array of security keys can be used across most major browsers (Apple will add support in Fall 2019). The following is supported: external hardware security keys, Android phones, Chrome with TouchID, iOS Brave with the Yubico 5Ci key, facial recognition or PIN with Windows Hello, as well as any new authenticators platform owners release in the future. No additional action is required for users with existing U2F hardware security keys.
