Here is our Tech Update: Is this the end of Passwords?

If you HATE creating new strong passwords every time you sign up to something, this news is going to make your day.

 Microsoft, Apple and Google have joined forces in a mission to kill the password for good.

 81% of all data breaches are down to weak or stolen passwords. So instead they want to use something called a passkey.

 

It’s very simple. To login to something, you’ll use your phone to prove it’s really you.

 Your computer will use Bluetooth to verify you’re sat nearby. Because Bluetooth only works a short distance, this should stop many phishing scams.

 Then it’ll send a verification message to your phone.

 You’ll unlock your phone in the usual way, with your face, fingerprint or PIN. And that’s it. You’re logged in.

 

You’ll start to see some services offering a passkey option in the next 12 months. Maybe one day all logins will be this simple.

 

In the meantime, if you’d like help to make passwords easier for you and your team right now, get in touch.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
