I you are anything like me you probably have dozens of passwords stored in your head. Or, if you like to gamble, you may have them all on a file stored secretly on your computer in a password protected folder. A little hint here, if you are one of these people with a password file on your computer, get rid of it really fast. A few weeks ago I heard a hacker refer to password files as the holy grail!
Back to my point though. Passwords are a huge problem. Every website seems to have its own preference when it comes to password details. Some have an eight character minimum others four characters are fine. Some sites require capital letters and symbols while others forbid them. It is impossible to live in today’s world with only one password. Which is why it is nice to see there are people working on solving this dilemma. The password is an antiquated tool. Easily defeated, it is incredible it has managed to survive for so long.
It appears to be that the battle to replace the password is now down to NFC (Near Field Communication) and bio-metrics. I will place my bets on NFC since I have used both and, I just cannot see bio-metrics ever becoming as cost effective and speedy as NFC. Take a look at the CNET video below and let me know what you think?
