    Disaster as far as I'm concerned because they are seemingly only doing UAF at the moment - the version of FIDO that uses things like biometrics. As opposed to U2F which uses more anonymous dongles under your control, without the dangers of biometrics.

    But because they want you by the biometrics, and don't bear the risks, that's the way it's going. Next up, they'll make you responsible for any fraud on accounts with UAF, because it must have been you.....
