Goodbye to passwords: This is how the new Microsoft-free system works

Microsoft has advanced in your vision of a future without passwords with a new option in the Microsoft account that allows you to completely remove the use of this password if the user opts for more robust alternative options.

Users of a Microsoft account will find a new option in the security settings. If you have installed on the 'Smartphone' the Authenticator application, and linked the account, you can choose to completely delete the password.

The account without a password requires other methods for the user to authenticate, for example, the 'App' Authenticator or biometric systems such as facial recognition on Windows Hello computers or the reading of the fingerprint.

One of the main counterparts of the Microsoft system is that it requires us to take our mobile phone with us and that it has data or some kind of Internet connectivity via WiFi.

An important handicap for many users. However, it is not a bad news since the new access system launched by Microsoft, at the moment, is optional.
