Microsoft’s Windows 10, users will be able to sign in without the use of passwords. Microsoft looks to roll this out for its next major update to the operating system, which will come next year. With the update, users will be able to choose from a number of different ways to secure their device, including Windows Hello face authentication, fingerprints, or a pin code.
This means that if users choose to enable the feature, the password screen on Microsoft’s Windows 10 will not exist.
Microsoft is looking to get rid of passwords on its devices due to the fact that many people reuse their passwords across a number of different platforms. Microsoft even views PIN codes as a far more secure method of security, due to the fact that they are not stored online.
