Re: going though comments from 2.2.6 Accessible Authentication and new wording.

Where I said:
> When they say “implementations”, that does not mean they are publically available in browsers yet. The firefox one is behind a flag, I’m still not clear where to find the MS one.

Apologies, there are two entries in Microsoft’s Edge support page, this is the right one:

So it is behind a flag at the moment (i.e. it is experimental and not intended for public use).

Also, it says “The implementation in Microsoft Edge is focused on enabling Microsoft Passport with a PIN or Windows Hello to securely authenticate to Microsoft properties and third-party web sites.”

I.e. it does not work with external USB devices, it only works on devices with a pin code or face recognition.

I guess you could argue that if it is an issue then you’ll buy a new device, but it does seem premature.

Kind regards,
