Microsoft Continues to Fight Passwords. And Will Completely Give Up Them Next Year



Microsoft has long disliked regular passwords for data protection and considers them very insecure. Over the past few years, Microsoft has been actively pouring money into the development of other ways to authenticate users and all kinds of other solutions, such as Windows Hello, FIDO2 keys, Microsoft Authenticator, and even into such addiction as identifying a user by veins in the palm of your hand. Well, passwords don’t suit and that’s it!

Do you think the company ended its attempts there? No way! Now the office has decided to tell everyone about its success in this field of rejecting passwords. And then there was a statement that the passwords will be in the past already next year. On this occasion, it becomes even a little scary. According to Microsoft experts, about 80% of all attacks in the digital world are aimed specifically at passwords. And because of this, all over the world every month some important account is hacked. Therefore, you need to get rid of passwords, because, you see, there are statistics that say that every 250 corporate accounts are hacked because of a password. Yes, that’s the kind of thing Microsoft is worried about.

This year Microsoft went to many developer conferences, where it promoted its new idea, which is called Zero Trust. In general, nothing is clear, very interesting, and the company will continue to try to move a new topic in an attempt to simplify our online life and make a complete rejection of passwords. True, Microsoft forgot that all passwordless solutions are mostly tied to the use of multiple devices. And this is not very convenient. But here we are talking not only about safety, but also ease of use. In addition, if we understand correctly, then Microsoft wants to tie almost everything to biometrics. And although it looks a little safer, the current recognition technologies are not particularly difficult to get around if you try. But if you use, say, a dozen corporate devices, then all this does not look very convenient at all, quickly and simply.
