Security with No Passwords

Security with No Passwords

Fort Lauderdale, Florida 02/07/2021: Thousands of staff in South Florida could wave goodbye to the frustration of logging in to apps this year, as Microsoft declares open war on passwords.

Instead, people could be using biometrics – such as their fingerprints – to access data on their computers.

The tech giant has set out a bold ambition to kill passwords this year.

“This is something that 100% will affect businesses around here, if not this year then next,” declared local IT support and data security expert Cesar Avila, of AVLA.net – IT Solutions.

“When Microsoft decides it wants to change something, it’s ultimately going to affect all businesses at some point. Microsoft hates passwords, and would much rather you logged in to apps via your fingerprint.

“I believe this will actually be more convenient for most people, as well as much more secure. Anyone who uses Face ID or Touch ID on their iPhone will know how easy it is to just access data without having to remember anything.”

• 80% of cyber-crime attacks are aimed at passwords
• Up to 50% of help desk calls are for password resets
• More than 150 million people already use passwordless sign-in on their Windows computer every month
