Windows 10 embraces password-killing biometric authentication
Microsoft is about to officially join the fight for authentication without pesky passwords. The company recently announced that Windows 10 will support the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) 2.0 specification. The end result is that instead of using passwords to log in to PCs, Microsoft services, and other third-party accounts, you’ll also be able to use a fingerprint or eye scan—possibly integrated with a key fob for two-factor authentication.
