Microsoft Adopts Passwordless Logins

Are passwordless logins the future of account security? Microsoft thinks so. The software giant recently released a passwordless login system, in which users can opt-out of using passwords entirely and log in using Microsoft Authenticator, Windows Hello, a security key, or a text message sent directly to their phone. 

In order to enable this feature, users must visit the Microsoft Accounts Site, click on security, and advanced security. There, they can choose to enable passwordless accounts, removing the need for passwords entirely.
