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.
Popular Action Launcher Android skin gets more free features
Action Launcher is a fairly popular shell for the Android operating system among paid ones. The developers have released Action Launcher v50, which has many more free features for those who do not want to pay for such features.
The app has gone through a lot of improvements over the years to keep up with some of the key improvements made by Google. However, in recent times there has been more and more criticism that the free basic version had a minimum number of features.
The Action Launcher’s implementation of the Freemium system has historically been terrible. We pushed people too aggressively to buy the Plus upgrade, which turned off so many people, and the app was hardly interesting for non-paying users.
Action Launcher v50 is suitable for everyone whether you pay or not. The new version offers an improved search engine that uses the Pixel Launcher. Action search gives you the best results on the web and on your device, as well as some action launcher settings that can be toggled right from the home screen.
In addition to action search and other free features, the action launcher’s own settings are changed. The app adds a settings search bar as well as shortcuts to recently changed settings.
