Silicon Valley: Microsoft has introduced a new way for its users to login / sign in to any account without a password.
According to the details, users will need the “Windows Hello” or “Microsoft Authenticator” app on their smartphones to log in to any Microsoft account without a password.
Whenever they want to log in to one of their Microsoft accounts, the user will verify that they are “correct” through one of the two apps and thus login to that account without typing in the password.
Note that a similar security feature already exists in WhatsApp and Yahoo that can be used to log in to the account without a password.
According to a recent announcement from Microsoft, forgetting passwords has become a common occurrence these days, which not only causes great inconvenience to users but also wastes time.
Logging in to a Microsoft account without a password will not only benefit the company’s millions of users worldwide, but will also reduce the risk of password theft in possible hacker attacks.
