Microsoft enters post-password era with Hello (promo video)
Just a short promotion clip, but definitly interesting: Microsoft announces Hello, the authentication system inside Windows 10, using fingerprints, iris scans and face recognition. As this will be the default way to login and authenticate, we can definitly speak about the post-password-era in consumer mainstream OS here.
Extremely interesting side-gimmick: Authentication is bound to the hardware, so “stealing” your “login credentials” becomes quite useless, as it will only work if the attacker also steals your PC, too.
Well done Microsoft, well done.
