There is no denying that password is a necessity in our digital lives. We use passwords as a critical security layer to protect our various accounts.

Users are not good at choosing passwords, and they tend to use weak passwords for convenience. For example, they reuse the same password for different accounts.

Security experts have long realized that using passwords to authenticate users is not good enough. They have been trying to create better methods to replace passwords.

As early as 1999, Microsoft launched the Passport authentication service to replace passwords, but it was abandoned a few years later due to its serious flaws. A decade ago, Bill Gates ever predicted that passwords would be dead soon.

Until recently, Microsoft finally started to "kill" passwords and let users remove passwords from their Microsoft accounts.

Sign in to your account on Microsoft website, choose "Advanced security". Under "Additional security", you'll see "Passwordless account". Select "Turn on".
