Windows 11 now comes with a dedicated Passkey settings feature where you can see a list of all the apps and websites for which you have created and saved passkeys. Along with that, you can also delete any of those passkeys. And in this tutorial, we will show you how to delete saved Passkeys for apps and websites on Windows 11 PC.
A passkey is a simple and secure alternative to a password to log in to a particular account on a device. Now if you have an account on a website/app that supports and has enabled passkeys on Windows (like google.com, ebay.com, etc.), then you can create a passkey (fingerprint recognition, face recognition, or PIN) using Windows Hello for your account. Once done, you can sign in to your account using that passkey on your Windows 11 device without using the account password. However, in case you ever need to remove passkeys for some account(s) from your Windows 11 device, then the Passkey settings feature will be very helpful.
Before you proceed further, note that this feature is yet to come in the stable release of Windows 11. As of now, this Passkey settings feature is present in the insider preview (build 23486 or higher) of Windows 11. If you are already using a supported build, you can use this feature right now.
