[UK, 19/12/2022] Experts predict the rise of passwordless security in 2023 as more and more people become aware of its benefits. Passwordless security is an authentication method that allows users to securely log in to services or websites without typing in a password. It leverages secure tokens, biometric readers such as fingerprint scanners, and other methods of verifying identity, eliminating the need for passwords altogether. This shift away from passwords will help to improve security for everyone as the world becomes increasingly digital.
The Answer to Phishing and Other Cybersecurity Threats
Phishing scams, malicious actors, and other cybersecurity threats are becoming far more difficult to defend against. To solve this, passwordless security offers a secure way for users to log in to their online accounts without the risk of having their passwords stolen. By eliminating the need for passwords, users can confidently access websites and services with an added layer of security against malicious actors.
Additionally, passwordless authentication improves user convenience as users no longer need to remember different passwords for their accounts. They can simply use biometric readers or other secure tokens to quickly log in with strong authentication.
Risks of Passwordless Security
Passwordless security is not 100% secure, and users must remain vigilant to protect their accounts. For instance, if a user's biometric reader is stolen or compromised, thieves can use it to access their accounts without permission. Organisations are also vulnerable to attack if their authentication systems are not adequately secured.
Therefore, the key to successful passwordless security is ensuring that users have secure tokens and that organisations have robust authentication systems in place.
