End of the password era is approaching: Even Windows login soon without a password possible

As CEO and founder of Yubico, Stina Ehrensvärd, in the message on the manufacturer’s website This can bring great benefits for companies and organizations: Their employees could eventually log on to the company’s computers without having to remember a password. ” If the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) identity management service is present, authentication via the USB Security Key is sufficient. The use of (in the optimal case) always different passwords for logging on pages and devices can, as Ehrensvärd emphasizes, quickly lead to unfathomability in password management. Therefore, the switch to the “password-free, secure and complete” FIDO2 system advised – not just for companies. Private users are also encouraged to use the log-in token.
