Microsoft has created a passwordless option for its users who constantly forget their passwords and to prevent cyberattacks. On September 15, 2021, the company announced that it will offer a “passwordless account” for all users of several popular services such as Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft OneDrive in the coming weeks. According to Vasu Jakkal, the company’s corporate vice president of security, users can now remove the password of their Microsoft accounts. Microsoft (MSFT) will allow users to sign in to their services with either the company’s Authenticator app, which creates a numbered login code every few seconds or with Windows Hello, which lets users log in using facial recognition, a fingerprint, or a pin. In addition, Microsoft users can also register a phone number to which Microsoft sends a verification code. As more employees work from home, hackers could find more opportunities to break into a company’s system. Based on cybersecurity experts, the choice of most of the users to re-use the same password across accounts is an easy point of entry for hackers.
