The American corporation Microsoft is preparing a large-scale update of the Windows 10 operating system called Redstone 4. One of the main features of the new assembly will be the actual absence of passwords. The innovation will be first implemented in a light version of Windows 10S, and then on everyone else.
Instead of passwords, the operating system will offer several identification options that are familiar to us from smartphones. This is a one-time password that will come to you in the form of SMS, fingerprint input, as well as face recognition method. Thus, the American monopolist follows modern security requirements for personal data.
According to the study, almost 80% of all computer hacks are due to the low reliability of the passwords we are used to. Moreover, many users use the same password in all services. Even well-known IT personalities, such as Mark Zuckerberg, come across this. For example, after hacking his Twitter account, the world found out that he used the password "dadada".
In the near future, as techno experts predict, mobile devices will receive even more advanced identification capabilities, such as iris scanners.
