Passwords must disappear. That's what security advocates say. Just like credit cards, fridges that are unconnected to the super market and doors that lock with a key? In reality banks with low efforts in security are hacked and consumers don't really care. With the same consumer mindset we run companies. Security is a checkbox, not a critical part of your company.

While the minds have changed, many still struggle how to implement this new approach.
 
"Should I confront all my existing customers with a brand new app?"
"What if we trigger our customers in the wrong way, a sleeping customer is a happy customer."
"Where does the insurance agent fit in? Wouldn't they be angry if we have a direct relationship with customers?".
 
New companies with a clear online focus are starting up... so if you don't start onboarding your customers now, you will cease to exist in the next two to three years.
