Let’s get rid of all the passwords

By Gary Stevens

Can you imagine an online world without passwords? Probably not, but the fact is that passwords have always come with risk. No one understands that better than Microsoft founder Bill Gates. The 21st century was barely underway when Gates predicted that technology would one day replace passwords with options that are more secure.
