The feature which is not yet available to all is still in beta test the windows blog says. So if the Microsoft Windows 10 does not use password – what does it used; the new lock authentication is going to use Hello face, fingerprints biometric and PIN code. The password will be no where to be found if the Passwordless option is turn on.

“This feature is currently being rolled out to a small portion of Insiders to test this new feature and the above option may not show for all users in Settings.”

“Enabling Passwordless sign in will switch all Microsoft accounts on your Windows 10 device to modern authentication with Windows Hello Face, Fingerprint, or PIN.”

A Why Reason for Passwordless

Nevertheless people often seem to forget their password easily, why the coming short code have step in to avoid user to crake their brain in remembering a tough and complex password – and reusing the same password allover again. If other tech company such as Google, Apple, Dropbox, Box can come up with a new way of getting into our account and devices it will be accepted by the user with great interest in mine.

Is it that people don't like long process like the two-factor authentication methods – nevertheless this method prove to be a secure pass for accessing your account and PC but people just don't like long process before getting in their own PC or account – with this in mind it must be the reason they came up with Passwordless option. Microsoft argues that a PIN code is far more secure than a password, even if it seems more simple to use a four digit code.

Microsoft plan now for windows 10 update is to allow people to remove the password option entirely from the login screen.
